Does anyone else have mycobacterium simiae?

Finding info on simiae is very difficult. I’ve never come across anyone with this NTM and sometimes feel like I am the only one with it.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the MAC & Bronchiectasis Support Group.

@karen10225 - You do indeed have a very rare strain, especially if you are in the US. I gave you a link to some information in another post I sent you, just in case you don't find someone here who knows about it.

It sounds like it is one of the variants that are not treated unless you have symptoms like lung damage, fever, fatigue and weight loss - does that describe you?
