The information you provided about the streptococcal infection few years back is very relevant. Antistreptolysin O (ASO) titer is a blood test to measure antibodies against streptolysin O, a substance produced by group A Streptococcus bacteria. This test is done if you have a previous infection by group A Streptococcus.The ASO antibody may be found in the blood weeks or months after the strep infection has gone away.
It is used to assist in the diagnosis of scarlet fever, rheumatic fever or Rheumatic arthritis. Discuss with your Doctor.
The answer is based on information provided. Exact advice is not possible without a proper examination and investigations. You are requested to consult your Doctor. Take care and keep us posted.
Most of your symptoms could be explained , just by the B12 and D3.
Your body will never function properly without these 2 vitamins.
Vitamin B12 deficiency symptoms:
no appetite, nausea,
loss of menstruation.
numbness and tingling of the hands and feet,
depression (from mild to psychotic),
striking behavioural changes,
abnormal or hyperactive reflexes,
impaired short term memory,
incontinence and frequent need to urinate,
weakness and loss of muscle strength,
inadequate melatonin metabolism leading to poor sleep
frequent upper respiratory infections,
enlargement of the mucous membranes of the mouth, tongue, vagina, and stomach,
low platelet count and increased bleeding,
neutropenia (low neutrophils )
And D3 deficiency symptoms:
General muscle pain and weakness
High blood pressure
Constipation or diarrhea
The list of the diseases associated with these 2 deficiencies is long!!!
Cancer of all types, numerous autoimmune diseases, MS, diabetes,
Fibromyalgia, CFS, Parkinson's, RA, Psoriasis, heart disease, Depression,
Bipolar, memory loss, Alzheimer's, infertility and on and on!
Dr Wanjari, explained the elevated ASO titre well, which by the way may not be your biggest issue. The above deficiencies are probably of higher priority. Your immune system is very compromised and you are very vulnerable to suffer from any of the aforementioned possible associated diseases, depending on your own genotype and phenotype, because of these deficiencies.
My suggestion without meaning to alarm you unnecessarily, is to get them corrected them PROPERLY and ASAP, before any serious and irreversible damage is experienced!!!
It is of utmost importance to put a top priority, without wasting any time
for further investigation at this time.
If you need details as of how to approach this , please let me know.
I hope this helps, however, this is not intended as substitute for medical advice.
Wish you well.
My aso titer is 939 and has been for a year at least. My mycroplasma pneumonia is 149 should be less than 100? I ave had little rashes on my stomac and back. They look like little bite marks. Sometimes they don't itch, but never go away. It is a painful itch and has been going on for at least 3 months. Dermo said dry skin, nope... Dr said yeast fungus in the gut.. Nope. Any suggestions?.
My name is Jason, I was misdiagnosed with RA ten years ago. I have all the symptoms you have described. I had all the vitamin deficiencies u have describe. Low B12, extremely low vit. D, low potassium, low iron with extreme anemia. My ASO levels have always been high and my RA factor has always stayed in the between 60-80 range. I'm 39 and have had these symptoms since early teens. Through years of test, personal research, and a lot of pain and suffering. I finally have the true diagnosis. Syringomyelia. Have you ever had an MRI of your neck and or base of your brain?
Hi, my name is also Lisa. I’m 36 and you’ve basically described me for the last 3years. My aso is 3970!! Did you ever get to the bottom of it?
