CPn Linked to Ear Infections

Kim doesn’t generally get ear infections. A few years before Kim started ABX, she had a serious ear pain that had her crying on the bathroom floor in the middle of the night. I ran out to the 24-hour pharmacy to get anything and everything that might help. I remembered this recently when I saw a note on a message board about a person with MS who was wondering about their recurring ear infections. A little bit of checking found that CPn has been associated with ear infections.

Q: Could recurring ear infections be associated with persistent Chlamydia pneumoniae infection?
A: Yes. Studies have shown that there is a likely relationship between CPn and middle ear infection, otitis media.

Storgaard, Merete et al. 1997 Chlamydia pneumoniae in Children with Otitis Media; Molin, Gianna et al. 2005 (abstract only) A population based seroepidemiological survey of Chlamydia pneumoniae infections in schoolchildren; Ogawa, Hidesato et al. 1992 (abstract only) Recovery of Chlamydia pneumoniae, in six patients with otitis media with effusion
It would be really nice to be able to put links in here

If I have included a bad link, google the word "Scholar", click link for "Google Scholar". Search for the name of the paper and author in Google Scholar.

Interesting, Ken,, because like Kim, I never thought I suffered from ear infections, yet I do now seem to have some sight hearing loss in my left ear, noticed before I started abx, still there but now getting no worse, maybe slightly better.

An Itinerary in Light and Shadow Completed Dr Charles Stratton / Dr David Wheldon abx regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years. Still improving with no relapses since starting. Can't run but can paint all day.

The infection can affect the ear canal, eardrum and middle ear. Most of the changes resulting from direct injury to the ear pressure, or take a dip, but a persistent ear pain may indicate infection that requires treatment. Ear cleaning is an important part replaced Care is recommended to keep one free from ear infections, ear disease, and even infections of the mouth.
