To Cougar....Chlamydia causing symptoms??
      06/28/00 07:12 PM

Cougar - I read in your earlier post that your doctor explained some of your symptoms as chlamydia-related. I am very interested to hear about your experience and more about what your doctor said. I contracted chlamydia/urethritis after a hish risk exposure in March. One month later I took a one day dose of antibiotics...the obvious symptoms cleared up (discharge, frequent urination). But ever since then, I've experienced joint pain, swollen nodes in groin, and minor fatigue. I of course fear the worst...even though I have tested negative on a 2 month PCR and a 3 month ELISA. My doctor seems confused. He ran more blood test this week to check for Hep, and other stuff.

How can chlamydia cause these symptoms months after the chlamydia was supposedly cleared up?

Thanks for any response. Good luck.
