I was born with mitral valve prolapse with mild regurgitation and have been battling recurring urinary, bladder and kidney infections for over 10 years. I also suffer from psoriasis which is very painful and covers my entire neck and back of head.
The hospital finally did an extensive panel and discovered I have the above mentioned bacteria which appears to be rare in woman that are not pregnant. I am curious if anyone knows if there is a connection between all of these things. I have found some connection but still am not sure what my next step should be.
Please advise...any help is much appreciated.
