: I am a flight attendant who was working a flight from Ams to DCA last august. On that flight was an Iranian coming from Iran via Amsterdam on a stretcher to be hopitalized in Washington, D.C. within 16yrs. of the beginning of that flight I became very ill and have been since. I have tested positive for the Mycoplasma infection GWI. I would like your imput to treatments and longevity of this illness. I seem to be getting worse each month instead of getting better.I filed an on the job injury report when I got sick,but because of passenger priviledge my airline said they could not tell me what this person was ill with. (I assume GWI) I plan on submitting the OJI report for re-embursement for lost wages. Just need more info on how it is transmitted and best treatment. I appreciate your willness and time in helping me.

I suggest after calling it up on your screen, you page-down and read the several case histories at the very bottom of this website.
