Chronic Yersinia infection symptoms can vary depending on the individual and the specific type of infection. Common symptoms of a chronic Yersinia infection can include:
- Abdominal pain and diarrhea
- Weight loss
- Iron-deficiency anemia
- Joint pain and inflammation (arthritis)
- Skin rashes
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- Appendicitis-like symptoms
It is important to note that these symptoms can also be caused by other conditions, and it is important to see a healthcare provider for proper diagnosis. In some cases, chronic Yersinia infection may be difficult to diagnose because the symptoms can be non-specific and similar to other illnesses.
In addition, some people with chronic Yersinia infection may have underlying health conditions that make them more susceptible to chronic infections, such as weakened immune system, so it is important to work with a healthcare provider to identify and address any underlying conditions that may be contributing to the chronic infection.
