i was suffing and found this document on other thing tick carry. it stated that a worm was found by a few doctors who are studing lyme disease.
 
"Whether nematode worms living in ticks will ever be implicated in human disease has yet to be seen. But if they are, says Sapi, then treating that infection could make all the difference in the world for a subset of patients who remain sick."
 
 here is the link if anyone wants to read it.
 
 
its not like we dont have enough to worry about.  this was a statment for the page.
 
"The take-home message is this: Ticks that carry the pathogen of Lyme disease harbor many other organisms, some known to cause serious human disease, others not traced to human infection or still undiscovered and unexplored. Over the next few weeks, look to this space for coverage of the coinfections accompanying or mistaken for the common epidemic disease called Lyme."
 
your input is welcomed.

this was very interesting - whilst on 'doxy' - about 10 days into treatment I was experiencing what I would say was 'herxing' - long story short - [not for the squeamish!] - after some bad bowel issues - I had a lot of 'white'ish stuff??' in bowel movement - doc. said 'worms!!!' - I took a tablet - on his advice - two days later there was a lot more of this 'strange stuff??'

following all of this my digestive issues are soooo much improved - they were ;bloating/constipation/gurgling/GERD./lump in throat [feeling] - since that experience I have wondered about a connection between - spirochetes and nematodes [worms].

Okay. Listen. My mother had Morgellons. When we started researching Morgellons, we found out about Lyme, and all it's ugliness happening in our bodies seemed to be starring out at us from the comp screen. She was CONVINCED she had some kind of parasite living in her. Yes, she had lyme and now we are very certain she also had Bart, as do my sister and I.

This falls right in line with some other research of Morgellons and what Morgellons researchers/dr.s are saying. However, most researchers of Morgellons think Lyme and Morgellons is a co-infection. It's like what comes first, the chicken or the egg. For most Morgellons sufferers, it seems their Lyme symptoms come first. Most all Morgellons patients feel as if they have something crawling under their skin, which led to a study being done at the university of OK. These people had been diagnosed with Delusions of Parasitosis and sent to a psychiatrist, as was my mother. Funny thing though. When they were treated for Lyme their sores that they supposedly inflicted upon themselves because of their "delusions" went away. Huh.

I am not saying that this article is talking about Morgellons, but what I AM saying is that it is VERY interestingly similar.

Gorbybelle, you are not alone. My mother had some terrible bouts with stuff from her bowels. Her most horrific ones were VERY similar to what you are describing and at times she said they looked like an "octopus".

RD, my mother was very wise and very smart. She didn't have a degree of any kind but I swear by all that is good that she could have taught the researchers of Morgellons a thing or two. If you google Morgellons, you will find a lot of inaccurate info. I have learned that it may be a nematode, and it may be a bacteria that is trying to turn it's host into a plant, and that the crawling sensation is the bacteria/growing of fibers at work.

The CDC was forced to recognize just a couple years ago, that there is a new infectious disease emerging that people who had it are calling Morgellons.

I see this article was written in Feb. of this year. G*d help us all.

I am praying everyday, and I think even subconsciously, that my sister and I don't develop Morgellons.

RD,
Thanks for the link. Nematodes are also microscopic worms that destroy plant roots as well in many of our house plants.

Before I got treated for lyme I most definately had many crawling sensations under my skin. It also felt like water was dripping on my skin sometimes too. I would have to look to see what was there and of course there was nothing there. I have learned after many years with this disease that this a common symptom. Lyme and co-infections do something to our nerves and confuse our bodies in many ways.

I have had treatment for 2 1/2 years and now occasionally still get crawling sensations but nothing like they were before treatment.

Blessings
Diagnosed 2003 Lyme, Babesia, Bartonella, Micoplasma,Hashimotos Thyroiditis. Have had since early nineties. [/color]

Kendal, my mother was not treated for either, except for a few rounds of abx that we managed to convince her NP to give her. We are REALLY limited around here in the doctor arena. And she didn't have the money to travel and pay for treatment.

The closest thing to a good doctor around here is 125 miles south of us in Memphis TN.
