Thank you so much for sharing your story. I am truly sorry you are going through this hell. I have been putting off seeing a doctor, now thinking I should make that appointment. I too thought I had lice, but it turns out I believe I had body lice for a while. I bought used clothes; also, my dryer broke.High heat will kill body lice in clothing, but I didn't have (I did have an iron but at that time didn't realize what was going on). Earlier I had a flea infestation .. I have cats but really I think the fleas were from mice or other small animals in my garage and the wall between the garage and hallway. I know they were/are there, see the droppings, cats act funny around wall.
THEN I got tapeworm and the Dr said I had OCD. So I know what you mean about Drs that are dismissive. I now have hookworm, i know, I have all the signs. I was hoping it would go away. My cats keep getting reinfested after treatment and just keeping up cleaning is a huge chore (worm larvae not just around litter box anymore). I should really confine the cats to one room. Or bring them to the vet, ask them to keep them for a week and deworm them, take care of myself and some how sterilize my house.
SO much work. But honestly I'm not sure how serious my own case is, my eyesight is slightly downhill also, could be for a variety of reasons.
I wish you the best of luck and hope to see you post your progress here on curezone. I'm sure you'll find otheres with Trichinellosis. Remember if you do a search also search for Trichinosis (same thing, different spelling, according to PubMed online).
