My symptoms include anal and genital itching (especially at night), fiece movement at times in my gut on the lower left and right sides...especially the right side (any time of the day or night). Occasional sharp pain on the lower right side and an internal feeling of my lower right gut containing a squirming, bulging balloon. At other times I feel sharp pricking sensations in my gut as if I am being biten... This occurs shortly after I take an anti-helminth concoction. There is also a sensation of itching and crawling up and down my vagina. In addition, there is a daily itching sensation in my nose and ears ; a sensation of crawling in the nasal cavity ... I also suffer from bloating, edema, joint pain, co nstipation, severe headaches, nausea, dry skin, fatigue, and depression.
After trying ,and having little success with, traditional and non-traditional pinworm medicines, I considered that maybe I have something more substantive than "just" pinworms. In addition, I have also read that if you have pinworms, it is quite likely that you are infected with other types of worms, as well...such as Acaris and Strongyloides. And, if they are just pinworms, then they must be some kind of mutant, highly resistant strain of pinworms! :D I have followed the pinworm protocol religiously in terms of personal, laundry, and environmental cleanliness and hygiene and I have even changed my diet (no raw meat,tap water, sugar, alcohol, gluten, etc) in an effort to rid them from my body. I have bombarded them with just about everything recommended to destroy them ( see below) and STILL they are thriving and breeding. I also recently saw this lousy, HMO ***k GI :mad: who actually questioned whether I had pinworms at all since he was firmly convinced that it is a childhood condition only. He didn't even pursue the matter by recommending tests. By they way, I think I got these parasites after having been given an endoscopic exam for GERD with a dirty feed line. Infection by this route is more common than most people realize. And you are getting the creme de la creme of shtuff planted in your bottom cuz by the time folks are sick enough to be scoped about what's plaguing them, it's probably something murderous.
Any feedback folks about what's "eating me", who I should see, where I should go, and what I should do? :confused:
TRADITIONAL MEDICINE THAT HAS FAILED:
BRANDS / THINGS I HAVE TRIED THAT HAVE FAILED TO ERADICATE THE
PARASITES... OR WHATEVER THE HECK THEY ARE:
"Clarkia" ---best of all listed (stuns worms/stops itching immediately)
Reese's Pinworm Medicine (pyrantel pamoate---useless and expensive)
Parasil (from Dr.Natura---those products suck)
Black Walnut and Wormwood Extract
Grapefruit Seed Extract
OxyPowder (actually great for eliminating constipation)
Yogi Green Tea with Kombucha
Did I not mention that HMO Doctors are criminal?
