A little update. I've been struggling with this for a year now. Started with stomach pain, got mebendazole from physician and took DE (stupid). One of those two caused intense scattering, I had crawling everywhere, painful stabs in thighs, floaters and black specks in eyes, intense headaches and feelings of stuff crawling in my neck to my scalp and ear. I pooped out big worms (ascaris), rice stuff and rolled up skins (flukes?). High fever- meningitis like symptoms and ''indentations'' in skull.
>>Sorry for the suffering. "Rice stuff" could be tapes - Use Google Images to search "tapeworm eggs" and see if that matches.
I have never used cleanses, Antibiotics , nor had any disease before this. NONE at all. EVER.
I started Matt's protocol and went to doctors. Alas, the doctors could not find anything, while I was in pain. Every bloodtest/ultrasound of organs etc came back clean. No eosinophilia, no infections found, elisa for stronyloides and Ascaris came back clean.
>>Testing is not always helpful. There are a plethora of organisms that could be causing the problem. My experiences have been that the clinician guesses then tests, not very helpful. You have to approach this with treatments that have a broad attack.
A private doctor told me he suspects bartonella due to the stretch marks I have on my back/hips/butt and arms. But there is no blood-proof.
>>There are many subspecies of bartonella - I wonder if that test just looks for one version of it. Dr. Schaller has comprehensive information about this.
I suspected parasites. Anyway, I started matt''s protocol for cleaning, which worked fine for a bit I then started the prazi and alb but switched to the filaria protocol because a few members told me it was probably filarial due to the shit in my eyes and crawling in scalp/face. Shit then became so bad that I had to go to the ER.
The crawling and intense biting got so bad that I tried to kill myself by taking an overdose of sleeping pills, I couldn't sleep, think or function anymore. Nothing seems to be working and doctors leave me to die. I also have severe pain in joints, Lupus like symptoms and painful sores. My hair if falling out in clumps and I feel movement under the scalp there and in my face, every day. Tinnitus, pain in and behind eyes and massive floaters and black specks.
>>Hair loss is a sign of nutrient wasting, the immune system is a powerful response and wastes a lot of resources, nutritional support will help sustain the attacks. Proteins are burned up which are critical for everything in the body, vitamins, minerals are lost as well. Oxidative stress is immense with any immune event. Antioxidants stop the oxidative stress. Oxidation attacks the cells which damages them.
It has calmed down a bit. I boosted my immune system. I am scared of herbs. I am scared of meds. I am scared of anything. I have disgusting skin and stretch marks and my neurological symptoms are still there.
Matt recommended me to do the full filaria protocol. What do you guys think? is this more of a Lyme/Bartonella thing or a parasite thing? I had no problems a year before this and now I'm living in hell. I think my thyroid is busted too.
