Mycoplasma pneumo. +: Hopefully, you are being treated with antibiotics against Mycoplasma, which are macrolides like azithromycin or clarithromycin or respiratory fluoroquinolones or tetracyclines. Any signs of pneumonia? 25 % have abdominal pain, and elevation of liver enzymes is certainly possible, as well as muscle and joint aches. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2893430/

Get checked: Sounds like you have walking pneumonia. Please have the doctor who tested you treat you antibiotics. If worse case scenario go to the hospital.
