Gurl, you are shameless.  This is one nasty STD ridden zombie thread.

Yeah... but if I get another 340,000 or so views I might just have a chance of beating out the "I Love Porn" thread....  just trying to send a message....  From "I Love Porn" to "Dayuuumm Syphilis"....

I just re read this entire thread as I was diagnosed with syph in November...
I got a call from the NYS Health Dept saying that someone who had tested positive for syphilis listed me as someone who he had exposed. The case worker said there was a small chance of me catching it since he was diagnosed as late latent and was relatively non infectuous.
I visited the clinic, they drew blood and gave me a penicillin shot just in case. A week later they called me and said I had tested reactive and needed to come in the next two weeks for 2 more shots. At the conclusion of the 3rd shot I asked for a letter for my ID doctor documenting the treatment. I also asked them for what my blood tests actually read.
They said the RPR was non reactive, therore no titer, but the FTS -Abs was reactive. I had never been diagnosed or treated before, I never had any symptom s I noticed...no chancre, no rash etc.
From what I understand the FTS -Abs will test positive forever, and if since my RPR was non reactive last time unless newly infected it will continue to be non reactive....What is the evidence of successful treatment?

First post - be nice!

I was co-infected with syphilis when I tested HIV positive in October last year. I have to say I was absolutely bricking it when I went for my first set of penicillin shots - the nurse had told me it would hurt like hell. I've coped pretty well with all the new crap you have to deal with when you test positive, but lying on the gurney with my trousers yanked down, I actually thought I was going to cry and ask for my mum.

What a fuss over nothing. I mean, yes, the shots are not exactly fun, but they weren't any more painful that most of the other injections I've had. I had two shots every week for three weeks, and only one of them was at all painful - and that was because I was unconsciously tensing my buttock and the needle ended up in a funny place (we had to try that one again).

The pain actually came about 8-12 hours later. Sitting down was a slightly more delicate procedure than usual. That said, the pain reminded me of the delayed onset muscle soreness you get after doing some particularly punishing squats in the gym. Uncomfortable yes (and highly annoying that, just as it finally subsided towards the end of the week, I had to go and have it done all over again), but not by any means unbearable.

So, I suffered tremendously, but not because of the actual shots, but because of the fear that a nurse (who really should have known better!) had engendered in me for the week leading up to them!

Just thought anyone who was about to have treatment for this might appreciate a few words of reassurance that it won't necessarily be awful.

Hi there, Benji!  Welcome to the forums.  Good post; it will be of value to anyone who goes thru this in the future.

You are right Benji  --- they aren't awful - not something I want to get again - I'd rather have something else injected in my ass (with full disclosure, of course  ;D  )  --- The LP wasn't even painful.... it was the post lumbar puncture headache I got that was excruciating.

Oh, and regarding the success of treatment that was posted by bufguy - as you have seen from this thread --- once a pozzie gets diagnosed with the syph - it is a good idea to make sure the doc is adding to your labs a RPR titer about every 6 months to make sure that it isn't creeping up. And, of course, if you are sexually active than a regular STD panel is definitely in order - on a regular basis.

Some people clear the syph and don't have a recurrence. Unfortunately, I was not one of those people. The doc and I are both hopeful that we have finally got it under control. I get my next labs the end of March and will find out in early April if we have been successful this go round. (This have been my longest period between labs since getting diagnosed, as doc and I decided that we would see how every 6 months goes since I have been staying UD, am med compliant, and my triglycerides are under control.

I never got the benefit of having an STD before the AIDS.  Just like everything I do in life, I go full force all at once. 

As far as the headaches and the LP, I remember them telling me I would probably have one after they were confirming my diagnosis for Crytococcus.  I remember thinking; really, I've been complaining of the worst migraines ever for several months now so I'm sure I can handle it.  After about the 10th one, I hardly even felt them.

My mother is going to be so proud of me when I tell her that my "Dayuuumm Syphilis" thread is one of the most popular.... She loves it when I achieve great things.

Of course, getting teh AIDS wasn't considered one of my greater achievements by her  -- go figure.....     I don't know why... I mean, after all, I am the first person in the immediate and extended family to have it (at least that I know of), that should at least count for  something?  :: hhhmmmphhh...

I was always taught to make my goals attainable...

so, instead of trying to beat out "I Love Porn" which has 352,000 views (to my 11,000+ views for "Dayuuummmm Syphilis")....   I am going to try to beat out "Chantix" - which has 400 replies....   I only need 129 more repliesto beat it and be the top ranked thread for replies

If you won't do it for me, do it for my mother.... she will be so proud knowing that I have achieved something meaningful in my life.

Lame syfy joke of the day:

"Father Reilly," the mother superior reported, "I think you should know that there's a case of syphilis in the convent."
"Oh, good," the priest replied. "I was really getting tired of the Chablis."

I was always taught to make my goals attainable...

so, instead of trying to beat out "I Love Porn" which has 352,000 views (to my 11,000+ views for "Dayuuummmm Syphilis")....   I am going to try to beat out "Chantix" - which has 400 replies....   I only need 129 more repliesto beat it and be the top ranked thread for replies

If you won't do it for me, do it for my mother.... she will be so proud knowing that I have achieved something meaningful in my life.

You have fallen into the trap that is gripping America -

JUNK FOOD and BAD NUTRITION!!!!!!!

While syphilis runs rampant --- rampant I tell you - rampant!

Support "Dayummmm Syphilis" NOT "Nutrition Wumpette Style"

Otherwise, you shall leave me no choice then to attempt to do what ATT tried to do to T-Mobile - and that is, ask the moderators to merge - yes, merge - the two threads...... so, it will be Nutrition - Dayummm  Syphilis Style"

And, I don't know about you...... but that just doesn't sound right --- and leaves a "bad taste in my mouth."

DAYUUUMMMM DAYUUMMMM DAYUUUMMMM!!!!

So, I just got back from the ID doc --- best lab counts ever (see other thread) -
CD4s 1041, VL=UD, Triglycerides 136 (normal), LDL cholesterol 103 (normal), HDL cholesterol 42 (normal)

NOW, the bad news....

My RPR (syphilis) titer has went back up to 1:16.... Health Department has already contacted the doc and wants to confirm I am in treatment for it..

Doc is at a loss - as the lumbar puncture indicated no neurosyphilis. As detailed in previous posts in this thread - I had initial treatment with cement butt shots (one round) a couple of years pre-HIV; had recurrence when I seroconverted - received three rounds of cement butt shots; then had another recurrence, got LP and another three rounds of butt shots (that last go-round was in September 2011)...

Doc is going to check with some of her "syphilis guru" colleagues and try to see how to approach this - these are what she sees as possible options:

1) Do nothing - as I may just be one of those people whose RPR is always going to fluctuate between 1:4 and 1:16;
2) Do another 3 rounds of cement butt shots; or
3) Admit me to the hospital and put me on 14 days of IV antibiotic therapy...

At any rate, the waiting game has once again begun, as we shall wait until she confers with her colleagues and until June 20th - when I see her again and we review that round of labs to see if the RPR has went down (which would indicate a fluctuating RPR), if it has went sky high (which would indicate a new or re-infection - which is highly unlikely as I have not been sexually active), or if it has risen slightly which means a more resistant strain that either needs the butt shot treatment or the more aggressive hospitalization.

DAYUUUMMM SYPHILIS!  This is getting real old, real fast. Very frustrating to say the least.

1/16 eh?

Hmmm. You definitely need a syphilis guru.

Just one observation, as far as I know there aren't any "resistant" strains of syphilis. Precisely why it's so hard to treat in some HIV positive people is a bit of a mystery, but it's not due to T. Pallidum developing resistance to the penicillin.

As far as I know.

Well, that makes me feel better about there being no resistant forms of syphilis -
Doc is completely puzzled as to why I am not able to clear it... and why the titer keeps going up..

I know that I am probably making my way (if not already there) to the top of the Dept of Health's "hit list" or Top 10 Most Wanted for Syph......    If I was whoring around like I used to, I wouldn't be as frustrated, kind of scared, and baffled..... but, there just seems to be no reason to explain why this dayuumm thing keeps wanting to stick around...  I mean, I'm really not all that nice of a guy (I just play one  on TV).

As much as I joke about the situation - to keep me sane throughout this process - it is also becoming a bit unnerving. Leave it to me to be one of those rare people who can't get rid of a nasty bug that most of civilized society is able to clear with a shot or two or three.....  If I get the shots again, it will be the fourth time in about 7 years (3 times in 3 years) that I have had to go there.    UGGGHHHH.

There are resistant strains of Syphilis for sure, although I think it never loses sensitivity to Penicillin for some odd reason.  Anyway sorry to hear the titer has gone up Phil.  Don't balk to go into the hospital if that's what needs to be done.

Hmph. I call bullshit. You're conspiring with your syphilis to increase the length and views of your pet thread. What an attention whore! You'll do anything for attention, won't you. 

Seriously though, sorry to hear this is continuing to be a problem.

Matty, shame on you.  ::) A quick google would tell you that there are indeed some resistance issues, particularly resistance to azithromycin. There have been resistance issues concerning syphilis going as far back as the early to mid-20th century. Just have a little lookie here

Penicillin is still effective, which kinda surprises me. :o

Phil, I seem to remember one member (years ago, can't remember who) being treated intravenously for two weeks but he didn't have to stay in hospital, they gave him some sort of portable pump that was strapped to his torso. I think it's similar to an insulin pump that some diabetics use. If they decide you need the two week treatment, ask if this pump thingy is available.

It would suck if you'd have to sit around a hospital for two weeks because of this. It's bad enough hanging out in a hospital when you're feeling ill, but it would be torture to have to do it when you feel good.

It sounds like you're in good hands, so try to not let this stress you out too much. I'd say "keep us posted" but I know you'll be aiming for another six pages, so no worries there. ;D

I was treated at home for two weeks with a portable pump. I even learned how to change the bags and batteries. Still had to have a nurse cone in and change the iv injection site every day, but at least I could go get groceries and stuff. The alarm that went off when the bag was low or tubes got linked was annoying.

Phild,

I have only words of support to provide you.  There's nothing quite so frustrating as a physician who is scratching his head and doesn't know what to do next.  Definitely sounds like it is time to engage a subject matter expert.  The shots just don't seem to be clearing it up.  But as least you ruled out neurosyphilis already.

Hugs,

Henry

Sorry this happening Phil . I know very little about the subject except for that the cement shots worked for me when I was a lad with the spots .

I also vaguely remember my docs saying my titers or RPR had started climbing at one point but it went back down to whatever the exceptable level is . I'm hoping the same happens for you , best of luck buddy .
