  • MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus), blood clotting factors, Mono....

    Hi! It's been a while since I've posted, and this isn't exactly a symptoms of IC, but I figured this was the most appropriate place to post this. I recently was diagnosed w/ MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus), and I was wonder if anyone else has had this.
    I had a whole ton of blood work done, and they also found that i have two protiens that cause my blood to clot more easily. I know one is protien C, but I forgot the other. Does anyone have this or any info on it?
    Oh, and I have mono! yipppppppeeee doooo!!

    Diagnosed: IC-2004' Endometriosis- 2000,TMJ - 2004, Osteoporosis-2005, IBS - 2005
    Peptic Ulcer-2005, PFD-2005, CFS - 2006, ADD - 1996 Bipolar disorder -2007. Other shinanigans: pelvic adhesions, Migraines, Cluster Headaches, fatigue, stomach ulcers, ovarian cysts, allergies, severe PMS.[/COLOR]

    Since February, I have had MRSA 7 times, was hospitalized for IV a/bs, and will be taking Tetracycline for the next 6 months. In April, my gyno found that not only did I also have a currently active infection of Epstein Barr Virus, but it was reactivated, and as of the blood work last week, still is. Kind of confusing....

    Current Treatment:
    Daily Medications: Elmiron, Cymbalta, Baclofen, Nexium, Pyridium, Adderall, Tramadol, Kolonpin, Tetracycline
    Other: Self-Hypnosis, IC Diet, exercise, IV drips 2x a week of a bunch of stuff...

      Hi,

      I don't have alot of time to post right now, but I'll try to later. My husband had MRSA right after he got hurt and it's devastating. He had to be on IV antibiotics for 2-3 weeks at a time and we think he still has it. It's very hard to cure. If you aren't responding to any antibiotics, then you should ask if you can have a port for an IV installed in your hand or arm and go in daily for IV antibiotics. That is of course NOT a medical opinion, but I do know you have to hit this hard and fast and not let it get out of control.

      Please get lots of rest and fluids and take care of yourself!

        Thanks for posting guys! Moonheart, I was wondering if his MRSA was a skin infection? I didn't say in my post much about my case, but I the more I think about it, I think it may be helpful to some patients. I hope this isn't too graphic for some, but here it is anyway. I get boils ever so often and I just treat them at home with hot compresses, alcohol, and a topical vitamin c paste that I make from a powder. It works like a charm! Anyway, it began to drain and heal, and I am very careful about being sterile (I wear my purple latex gloves and everything lol) because I know they can spread and whatnot, not to mention I'm a germ freak. A couple days laterI woke up with this rash on my inner thighs and vulva. I looked like a to of little pimples and they all had come to a head. (I'm sorry thats really gross) I was on antibiotics already for a sinus infection, so I put neosporin on it, and for the most part by the next day they rash was gone. Two days later, i was somewhat tender in that region, and I noticed a few isolated pimple thingys; so I broke out the neosporin again and began to apply it. This is when I noticed something was VERY wrong. As I was applying it, I felt three large painful lumps on the outermost part of my labia, so i took a look, and they were large enough that it kind of pulled it out and down----like the while side had just moved to the crease of my inner thigh. Talk about I was freaking out. I decided to wait to go to the doc on monday bc i didn't have fever or anything and I didnt really want to go the the emergency room. By the time I saw my gyno, it had spread to the other side as well. She examined me, and tole me that it prob wasn't MRSA, but prescribed Bactrim (this is used for MRSA infections) just incase. I got my meds went home, and by the next morning had a fever and a horrible rash. I went back in, she swabbed it, and admitted me to the hosp. She also ti fir never feel well, so while I was there she ran 432527 million labs. The first time that they came in to take my blood, they took 13 viles, and then came back at 6 am to take another 8. Thats a WHOLE LOT of blood! lol My fever dropped by the next day after 2 iv bags of antibiotics, so she discharged me. I was happy. Right now I am taking tetracyline and it is giving me great results. Not all of the lab work is back yet, but my 1st post says what it showed so far, which is kiinda sucky, but hey, that's life.


        I just wanted to add the details, because this is a very serious infection, and I thought that maybe it could help someone in the future.

          Hi there,

          No his was in his urinary tract, as well as blood borne. Not good. Your case sounds horrible! Poor thing! How miserable you must have been. I hope you get well right away. It's so easily transmitted, we all have to really be on our toes.

            Wow, septecemia.... my mom's brother died of that, so of course when she founf out that I had Staph she was hysterical, but I don't blame her. Actually, when I was 5 or so, I had a bladder infection that spead to my kidneys, and by the time they figured out what I had, the doc said I was lucky it wasn't in my blood (thats what my mom says anyway)
            Anyway, for now its going well, and I am feeling better on the antibiotics. The swelling has started to go down, but the thing that sucks is that it
            already hurts so bad and now I have a yeast infection on top of it bc of the antibiotics, which makes me itch too! lol
            Thanks for sharing and I hope your hunsband is doing well! Good luck.

              Thanks, glad to hear it's working for you. Have you thought about taking plain yogurt or replacing your intestinal flora some other way? That should help with the yeast infection.

              Take care,

                Yes, I've been taking a probiotic that I got from GNC, but I read that yoy need to get them cold so I think I'm going to talk to my pharmacist today and see what he has to say or if they have any there that they keep at cooler temperatures. Do you have any advice as to which ones i should consider?
