:confused: I have been haveing trouble breatheing, it feels like if I'm going to have a seizur or passout out. I get blurr vision, my body gets weak, I get very weak, my chest gets really warm my heart races. Sometimes I get bad pains n my head. I wen tto the hospital but they found nothing wrong. I went to my doctor and found out I had syphilis and I'm getting treated for that. Could that explain whats wrong with me or is it something else. I'm scared to find out but I really need to knw. I was actually curious to find out if anyone is haveing the same problems, I have also noticed little red dots on my skin(there really small like a needle/pin mark) Please anyone let me know what you think it could be. I am 23 years old and I dont have family out here in memphis so I have no one to turn to for help.:( :confused:

  • Neurological problems. These may include stroke; infection and inflammation of the membranes and fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord (meningitis); poor muscle coordination; numbness; paralysis; deafness or visual problems; personality changes; and dementia.Cardiovascular problems. These may include bulging (aneurysm) and inflammation of the aorta — your body's major artery — and of other blood vessels. Syphilis may also cause valvular heart disease, such as aortic valve stenosis.You didn't say whether your case was recent or from some time ago. Yes, there are lots of things that can go wrong..see above. If you just started treatment, the first day you feel awful as the bacteria dies off. Are you having a penicillin reaction? Go back to your doctor with the above list.

  • Some of your problems could indeed be due to syphillis.Check this out... http://health.yahoo.com/topic/sexualhealth/overview/article/niaid/Mens_nichd_men_sex_std_syphQUOTE from article:Can Syphillis cause other complications? Syphilis bacteria frequently invade the nervous system during the early stages of infection. Approximately 3 to 7 percent of persons with untreated syphilis develop neurosyphilis, a sometimes serious disorder of the nervous system. In some instances, the time from infection to developing neurosyphilis may be up to 20 years.Some people with neurosyphilis never develop any symptoms. Others may have headache, stiff neck, and fever that result from an inflammation of the lining of the brain. Some people develop seizures. People whose blood vessels are affected may develop symptoms of stroke with numbness, weakness, or visual problems. Neurosyphilis may be more difficult to treat, and its course may be different, in people with HIV infection or AIDS.UNQUOTEBTW it is important to keep following up with your dr. Syphillis is a serious STD infection; good follow up care can help you manage it and avoid many problems. Good luck.:confused: I have been haveing trouble breatheing, it feels like if I'm going to have a seizur or passout out.

  • When were you diagnosed with syphilis? Have you ever had repeat blood tests to make sure the antibiotics are working? Look into the penicillin reaction possibility if you just started taking it. Look up "secondary syphilis rash" and look at the pictures.
