The first test was a test that was done with initial investigations. They figured that, that was the trigger. Initial symptoms were chest pains and difficulty walking.How do you know when mycoplasma is active?
I think it was Mycoplasma antibody/antigen blood test. Your Dr should be able to find it in their database. Make sure you get the test around the time you experience symptoms though as you want the most accurate results. Mycoplasma anti bodies can come back positive a while after the symptoms but just to be on the safe side.what was tthe test name for mycoplasma and what lab was used? I am drowning in phlegm again and I believe it is due to something other than allergies. I notced a few times while on abx in janurary that for the first time in years I could take a deep breath and it was easy, without effort and felt so foreign to feel a full breath in my lungs without feeling the air had to travel through a less than porous impediment (I'm not sure this makes sense to anyone).
Well I had Mycoplasma pneumonia so I can only talk about that but if your bringing phlegm up from your chest then that is definitely a symptom as that was one of my main symptoms. Along side chest pains, you may also see a rash which is commonly associated with Mycoplasma (learnt this recently). I had an odd cluster rash when I first got ill. It was like hives but without the redness and in small clusters. There were also little scars where the rashes were. If your Dr is willing then you could try the test now. If it comes back normals then wait till symptoms arise then try again. But my test was done 1 month 1/2 after I had initial symptoms and I already had a course of antibiotics.Which of the multitude of symps are related to Mycoplasma - one I know is sinusitis. I do not have pneumonia but I hae constant phlegm .... not sure of my other symps which might be attributed to Mycoplasma....that is why it is so hard to determine which tests to get. I was leaning towards this becuase it is mentioned that mycoplasma frequently associated with lyme.
