... full diagnoses and the correct treatment? I need help. The test are done through Kaiser and don't seem well managed. The put me on oral Docxy.Cipro. felt better a little while and went downhill immediately after stopping. They gave me rifampinn by itself for something else, it helped so. The docs to me off then on then off. Then went up in dose with a different manufactor. I developed a sensitivity to the drup. When I'm on certain med I start to get better bu not all the way. When I'm of , it's head to the bed,plus everything else. The symptons fit this, to me and I tested positive twice on basic test ,then they said I didn't have it., don't know what it is and go home. It's been over three years. HELP!!
I believe I have had brucellosis for over 10 years-although I can't even get a doctor to run test. The flu-like symptoms, skin, sleep, chills, depression, stomach, urinary problems and lot of pain, disappear within 3 days of taking an antibiotic(I feel like me again)-then returns when I stop and I can barely get out of bed, walk, etc. I know that (thru MRI's, med records etc.) that I have arthritis in almost every bone, masses in my kidneys, liver, spleen, thyroid and an adominal aneuryism, enlarged spleen and glands. Had back surgery in 2002-for spondyliosis and yet, I receive no treatment for any of these. Occaisionally, I can get antibiotics-but as you know they never really get rid of the disease. I'm scared and don't understand why the medical profession will not even test for this. If I had symptoms of diabetes and told them, they would run the appropriate tests-so what is going on. ARE THERE ANY OTHER PEOPLE OUT THERE who have these symptoms; are misdiagnosed or not being properly treated? There are times I wonder if we may be part of a govt. bio-weapon program (that they claim they no longer do-I really don't want to be a test subject who's children or grandchildren get an apology in 25-50 years! In answer to your questions, there is a lot of info about symptoms/treatment of brucellosis online and ALL of them refer to the need of using a combo of antibiotics for periods of 6+ weeks and even interveinious treatment if long term brucellosis has gotten into bones/organs which are much harder to treat with oral dosages. One other suggestion for you is to get a referal to an infectious disease doctor (if you haven't already done so). I would love to know how you come out, and would also like to hear from anyone else who might have these symptoms.
