The first symptoms I experienced after my

tickbite this may were identical to those of a cold,

lasted as long as cold symptoms usually last, and

were experienced by my parents too starting

a few days after I got them, so naturally we

all thought they were from an actual cold

rather than TBI's. But now I'm wondering if

they were more likely from a mycoplasmal infection

that I got from the tick and proceeded to give

to my folks.


What do you guys think? And is Mycoplasma curable?

Some mycoplasma infections present almost identically to Lyme, and can be transmitted by the same ticks (as well as person to person, apparently.)

Treatment for mycoplasma is similar to that for Lyme, but only certain antibiotics work: doxy, zith, biaxin, others. This, too, requires long term treatment from what I understand.

Many of us have mycoplasma along with TBDs -- I did.

Adam, Your from WI too. I got Myco from the tic here in WI.

I ran into the same thing. I had a cold that would not go away and developed into pnenomia in my left lung. We cleared the infiltrate from the lung but I never really recovered. The same doc you see, ran myco lab tests and my levels were off the charts for myco.

Well, each of us only had our respiratory symptoms for a week, and

my parents never went on to develop any other symptoms.

Might these perhaps be signs that it was a legit cold?
