Thanks for your advice, and yes I did know the HUGE danger of taking the steroids. I took them for a number of reasons, although this might not seem logical to you.
1) I NEED my GP, Respiratory specialist, and the Hospital of Tropical diseases to understand that I must NEVER be given steroids again. The Specialists at HTD, believe catagorically that Ivermectin [1-2 doses] kills strongys. They had treated me, therefore advised my respiratory doc that it was now safe for steroids.Under great duress, I took them. I reported to my resp doc within days, recurrences of rash and other symptoms.
2) I felt strong enough now to risk a minor infection as I recognised all the signs. I also treat myself with herbs which is how I got it under control in the first place.it has not been pleasant and I will never take steroids again.
3) I want HTD Hosptial of Trop diseases to treat me properly, and get their agreement to test me yearly for life...I am not going to be sidelined, and I have to prove to them their precious 1/2 doses of ivermectin is not enough to kill these monsters......
They have now given me 4 doses to take at weekly intervals. my reaction to Ivermectin has been worse this time. i suspect because of the number of young new adults.
All in all I am not going to gamble with my health again to prove a point......but at least I am being seen by the top specialist now!
in parallel I see a good Naturapath. We use kineisiology to test whether they are still there or not. i use this method to check how effective the hospital treatment is. Interestingly we also use my muscle response to steroids to indicate how well the battle against strongys is going.
I need to establish a long term regime to keep them to minimum. it will undoubtedly be a mixture of alternative and traditional medicine. At the end of the day I am responsible for my own health!
