Those of us who have read Sarah's story were probably struck by how dramatic her reaction to antibiotics was, immediately.......

Sometimes I wake up at night worrying about it, even with the general lack of insomnia.
One other interesting side-note (and perhaps a question for Dr. Wheldon): Some patients being treated for chronic CPn seem to have a low body temperature- I certainly do. Over the years, my temperature has ranged from 95-98.3 but is usually in the 96s or 97s.
I know in acute infection a fever is usually seen, but I wonder if the lower body temperature is a function of the parasitic effects of the CPn stealing the body's energy...is that plausible? And of course a bacteria like CPn would beneift from a lower body temperature....right? hmmm... interesting stuff.
If chronic CPn infection has caused a lowered body temperature in my case, that means that I've had this infection at least ten years.
This is all highly speculative but I think, quite interesting.
