For those that have an "undiagnosed" STD (eye problems, genital rashes, Joint pain)

Sounds like there are people hear that are afraid tht they have herpes, or joint pain, or unexplanied rahes or bumps. Maybe some eye sysmptoms. Mainly an overall feeling like something isnt right!



There is something called REITERS SYNDROME. (also called reactive arthritis)



Reiters syndrome symptoms include: Joint pain, rashes on genitals, sores on genitals, skin problems, mouth sores, eye problems, blurred vison, itching, numbness, prostate pain, heart valve trouble, malaise, spinal pain, unexplained discharge from penis, penis pain, testicle pain, acne.............ect



Reiters syndrome is set off by a bacterial infection of the urinary tract or food poisoning. If your joints hurt after a urinary tract infection, chances are you have reiters syndrome.



This syndrome cause eye, joint, heart and genital problems.





The syndrome can last weeks or years.





People can take Antibiotics for months to help cure the disease. Also a drug called benicar is used to stop inflammation. The problem with these drugs are that they are not speciffically designed for this disease. Antibiotics are used for bacterial infections. benicar is used to lower blood pressure.



But doctors have learned that certain enzymes that cause the damage in reiters syndrome are stunded by antibiotics (especially minocycline). Also benicar is gaining popularity because it completely blocks 2 rouge enzymes that go wacky in the body following the intial infection.


You see the body still thinks that the infection is still there and the immune syatem starts to fight cell that have a similar cell surface as the original bacteria. The mucus membranes of the mouth, penis, and eyes are attacked. The synovial layer of the joints is attacked too. This causes arthritis.


Talk to your Doc ASAP if anything i wrote sound familar.



Also consider a PCR test for ureaplama, mycoplasma, or Chlamidya ( the 3 most common bacteria that set off reiters syndrome)




I know people that have taken minocycline for months and have been cured of reiters!
