Comment from: Mary , 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: June 22

Streptococcal aureus virus is what caused my strep throat in 1985. I had fought strep throats but antibiotics are no joy. I spent a week with fever in hospital having intravenous penicillin, and now I'm resistant to a lot of medicines. I have lupus, Sjogren’s syndrome, pituitary microadenoma, and brain hemorrhage in 99. In the 90s I had early menopause, refused hysterectomy, and still bleed.
