Anyone know the symptom list for this. I can't find a good one and know there are very knowledgeable people on here. Also are there good tests for this?

I found an article lately about myco, with some basics and some symptoms mentioned:
I would like to learn more about this, most of all about the testing methods. It sounds as if tests are not very reliable / accurat.

Maybe others know more. greetings, dorit

This is came form the Clongen home page - they do testing. It seems like there may be others.

Dr. Garth Nichols has presented at some annual Lyme conferences and was talking about Gulf War Syndrome in the 1990's. I went to an infectious disease doctor in 2001 and asked her to test me for mycoplasmas and told her about mycoplasma research in connection with stealth pathogens, FMS, CFS, etc. She went into the hall way and yelled at the nurse and asked why I was taking up her time. She came back in to the room and told me to go home - that I would feel better soon. She was angry that a patient dared to ask her for something. Sound familiar?????

This was after 6 years of life changing symptoms and a diagnosis of FMS and CFS AND going from a person who could lead a steps or aerobics class for an hour no problem to having trouble walking up the stair.

I believe that minocycline and some of the other antibiotics we take cover mycoplasma infections. I will continue to look.

I don't know the symptoms of Mycoplasma. I think there might be different types. I got tested for Mycoplasma Pneumoniae IgG/IgM Abs at LabCorp. My IgG was high and my IgM was normal. I am currently taking Minocin, Zithromax and Plaquenil. I did see one of Dr. Nichols presentations online - pretty interesting! Take care!
