    I will add this increase in blood pressure was I think because of azithromycin .. I initially went in to the doctor because I think I have Valley Fever (I live in a dusty area of Arizona) and have 7 of 9 symptoms .. the doctor said no (not sure why) gave me a EKG and when it came back normal said she thought it would but the tranee nurse wanted it done .. still haven't been able to get a simple blood test which is how you check for valley fever .. Doctors are so pompous!!!

  • From this study (3 days ago):

  • I have so many side effects that chronic fatigue seems simplistic. Almost every cell in my body has been damaged. I have seen over 20 doctors since my cascade of symptoms started (13years ago). They all play dumb, tell me my problem is not in their specialty, or offer me antidepressants. Yet when I look up actual research, I see that most of the pieces of the physiology of my syndrome have been known for years (some for decades).

    I also note that on this web site, there is no way to report a high number of side effects or simplify them as mitochondrial damage.

    I believe it is the intent of this web site, the AMA, drug companies, and most doctors to deliberately avoid "knowing" about the holocaust of poisoning that is occurring in the name of heath care.

    The logarithmical explosion of cancer, obesity, depression, allergies, auto-immune diseases, "rare genetic diseases," and diabetes (to name just a few) matches exactly the explosion of pharmaceutical consumption.

    It would be appropriate to apply the scientific method instead of the profit motive to further human health.

    I did have lyme, but it was treated immediately at the appearance of the classic rash. I have been tested several times since - always negative. I looked up mycoplasma and serratia, as you suggested, but found almost none of the symptoms apply to my problems. Thank you for the information. I can now pass that info on to anyone with those sort of symptoms. My symptoms can all be explained by mitochondrial damage caused by doxycycline and azithromycin. Thanks again for your reply. We all need to teach each other as much as possible, as the doctors won't do it.

    person,
    if you have lyme, youre 75% of 100 likely to have either mycoplasma, or serratia. these cause kidney stones, which in turn, cause damage or loss if not surgically removed (struvite type) AND the way the spirochete and other partner bacteria hide from the meds. The lyme docs have known this all along when they said, "it hides where meds cannot get to it". 75% of lymies having myco...= struvite stones that will keep ANY coinfections going on indefinitely via relapse. Its all about meal ticket patients here....sad.
