The following is taken from the above website and translated by a Lyme/MSIDS patient.
Today on the blog about Lyme disease, a text about another co-infection to Lyme disease – chlamydia trachomatis. From the experience of our Center, it appears more and more often among our clients as “accompanying” Lyme disease. Its symptoms cause a number of female ailments, but the male gender is also not free from them. All the time on our blog, readers may notice that the catalog of symptoms that may indicate Lyme disease is growing dynamically and at the same time the catalog of symptoms that may indicate specific co-infections to Lyme disease is also growing dynamically. A natural question may arise: Is it possible to realistically have so many different symptoms? Answer: yes, it is possible.
Chlamydia trachomatis (bacteria), like other co-infections to Lyme disease, which we wrote about earlier on the blog, can be transmitted, among others, by a tick. Infection can also occur through intimate contact.
At the initial stage, such an infection does not show any clinical symptoms, which does not mean that such an infection does not develop in the body. At this point, our common belief bows – no symptoms, e.g. no pain – no disease. In many cases, then we are dealing with an asymptomatic infection.
The characteristic symptoms of an infection – chlamydia trachomatis – mainly concern the genitourinary system, including:
In contrast, the symptoms that affect women are increased
- vaginal discharge
- vaginal bleeding
- bleeding after intercourse
- cervical erosion
- cyst formation
- secondary infertility
The occurrence of the infection in question and its symptoms causes a significant decrease in the comfort of life, including the comfort of intimate contacts. That is why it is so important to recognize it properly and early. Then there is a chance to use the right therapy – about which we will write on our blog.
An important point worth mentioning here is that the occurrence of chlamydia trachomatis with Lyme disease is not an “absolute relationship”. This means that the presence of this infection is not an automatic indication that we are also dealing with a Lyme infection.
Intimate infections in men and women related to specific pathogens are a wide issue that goes far beyond the scope of the blog. By presenting the problem of tick-borne disease – Lyme disease, or rather the problem of tick-borne diseases – Lyme Disease – on our blog, we want to draw the attention of natemat.pl
readers that you need to look at specific symptoms and disease states in a much wider perspective.
Only in this way are we able to more effectively counteract infections that attack us and our loved ones.
Finally, I would like to point out one more symptom that, based on the experience of our Center, can and does cause chlamydia trachomatis – eye problems:
- feeling of sand in the eyes
These symptoms can last for months and no drops can solve the problem.
Co-infecting agents can be transmitted together with Borrelia burgdorferi by tick bite resulting in multiple infections but a fraction of co-infections occur independently of tick bite. Clinically relevant co-infections are caused by Bartonella species, Yersinia enterocolitica, Chlamydophila pneumoniae, Chlamydia trachomatis, and Mycoplasma pneumoniae…..Chlamydia trachomatis primarily causes polyarthritis. Chlamydophila pneumoniae not only causes arthritis but also affects the nervous system and the heart, which renders the differential diagnosis difficult.
Fluorescent immunohistochemical and in situ hybridization methods demonstrated the presence of Chlamydia antigen and DNA in 84% of Borrelia biofilms. Confocal microscopy revealed that Chlamydia locates in the center of Borrelia biofilms, and together, they form a well-organized mixed patho-
