Hi everyone, I have not done a post in likely three months.  I do not know where to exactly post this, so the monitor can place this anywhere that fits.  I had so many symptoms, so I hope I do not bore you, but you will find this to be very interesting...
Dizziness, head fog, severe muscle tension in neck, joint problems, high insulin, high enzymes in liver, hypoglycemia, rashes, nervousness, vision problems, anxiety, diarreha, constipation, upset stomach, you name it, it came all during a period of 3 to 4 months.
 
It was the nervousness and anxiety that was driving me the most nuts....second on the list was the constant head fog - spaciness. Plus the fact that I developed hypoglycemia so suddenly.  The specialists checked everything that could be checked, and could not determine what was wrong with me.  All of them suggested that I was stress, and suffering from anxiety, but if that was the case, it just jumped up at me for one reason or the other.
 
Finally, through a natural path and a variety of different tests, he determined that I had a PARASITE skull    I read up on this, and sure enough, all of the symptoms that I exhibited suddenly were all there, right down to the hypoglycemia.  I started off by taking a homeopathic remedy, which in little bits, did start to show some improvement.  But I became impatient, as this had been going on for several months now, and wanted a quicker solution.  So I went to my family doctor, talked to him about this, and he decided to put me on the antibiotic Flagyl for two week.  Within a few days, I started to see the results.
 
By the end of the two weeks, I went back and had more blood work done.  For the first time in months, my liver enzymes were back to normal, my insulin level was were it should be, the neck pain and joint problems diminished somewhat, and the head fog for the most part went away.  With a parasite, comes yeast infection, so after that I went on a two week cleansing program. 
 
What also showed up, which is typical of a parasite infection, is a bacteria infection.  We did not know what or where, but suspected that it was likely an allergy or something like that.  Now I probably had this for quite awhile, but determined that I have an inner ear infection, as well as a sinus infection, which can effect neck muscles and joints, and can contribute to some dizziness and such.  So I had to go on another antibiotic called Keflex, and again (although I still have a couple of weeks to go on this) am feeling better yet.  Lost the nervousness, the upset stomach, and the neck head pain, and a bit steadier on my feet.
 
Can you imagine that a littel bug can do all of that to you.  It was beaver fever, and once I did some back tracking, it all started to make sense where I got it - drinking lake water!!!!
 
Hope this inforamtion was not too long, and that it helps someone...
 
Have a wonderful day,
Gary

Gary I know exactly what you mean when we were kids evey 4 months dad would line us up and we would be De Wormed lol.........aninals carry worms which go into the dust and your nose hairs so then you body to live and come out at night by your anus to feed
Most children that are fidgety bags under eys dont sleepright and eat and eat most like ly have these lil beggars and the worms will use all their nutrients making them pale and lethargic as well
I think anyone with animals should be tested for parasites and it have them get the medicine to be rid of them
Constantly like Lice they pass around at schools
thanks for bringing this up ....important info IMO ........Glad to have to have you hear

Thanks Lyn ...you are right, I remember being de-wormed as well, I asked my doctor why we do not do this anymore, he just kinda shrugged his shoulders.

But this parasite infection that i had, just about did me in - so undetectable, yet potentially deadly. i found another person who had what I had, he had it for 18 months before someone gave him the solution.  He missed work, missed out on life, had no interest in his friends, etc, and there were times that he thought that he was going to loose it, or even die...Can you imagine - actually, yes I can

Thanks for the post,

Gary

Hi Gary,

Ditto on the de-worming! My poor mum had this pleasant job!

I've heard of parasite infections, but never realised that they could go undetected for so long -- a sobering thought. I hope that this is now behind you and that the bacteria and what-nots that come with it are soon history too. So sorry you've had this to deal with. Life sure does throw some curve balls...

Oh wow... I've never heard of this myself... I know cats get worms but i had no idea that people get worms too! I mean I guess I knew it could happen I just didn't know that it actually did happen! I'm glad my anxiety has gone so far down or i'd add parasites to my "obsessive worry list".

no it is a stool culture test or do the flashlight test on kids liike I mentioned
Lil one this is not talked about now adays as Gary had posted it is more not thought of and they wil medicate kids or label them malnourished when sometimes it is just pinworms .............
all animals have worms and they pick them up easily thats why de worming kittens and puppies is a big thing if we do it for them what about our kids ya know
If you have them most likely as an adult you would know real bad anal itching more at night and you could see them on coloured TP as well
Not trying to freak peeps out just educate/I wont even go into Tape Worms lol
Take care

I have heard of this. When my sister was alive we went to a herbalist and she said Shannon had a parasite she also said she did not have cancer. Unfortunalty it was too late Shannon died about 2 weeks later. But I had no idea it could have something to do with anxiety. I think I might go see her again hmmm.
 
 
Thanks for the awesome info! :-)

Welll good morning all, did not think that this would generate so much discussion.....but kinda glad too.  Funny, I watched the show "House" Last night, and sure as sure can be, the final diagnosis for the young tad was - yes - parasites.  Made me sick and uncomfortable.

The only way to detect these little creepy guys is thru a stool sample, but even then, it may or may not detect parasites.  The person that I referred to in my original post had six stool samples taken before anything showed up.  In my case, it came back inconclusive. What ever that means.

I have done much research on parasites over the months, and it is quite scary actually.  The normal person can rid themselves of these little creatures, but if your immune system is down, they just root them selves right in. 

July 2005 we rented to a cabin. There was a direct water line coming frome the lake to the cabin, primarily to run the toilets, but the water was also in the taps.  During this time I was having gall bladder problems, so I am sure that my immune system was probably out of wack, etc.

I know for a fact that twice a day, when brushing teeth, I used the tap water without thinking.  I know I rinsed out the odd glass under the tap.  I know someone likely washed lettuce etc for salads under the tap.  The day that we were leaving, I had stomach cramps.  Followed by severe diarreha.  Followed by an enlarged liver, and high levels of enzymes.  Then a gall bladder operation. Then hypoglycemia.  Then dizziness and lack of concentration. Heart palputations. Then nervousness (trembling) and then stress and anxiety.  I kept getting worst and worst.  Then finally a diagnosis. 

I feel much better today, but i still have the early morning nervous tension, and neck muscle and joint problems.  I am told that it takes awhile for things to get back to normal.  Am I stress - you bet I am. Stress from being sick, and stress from worrying about what was going on.

If left long enough, the infection goes into all of your organs, muscles, etc.  Left long enough, will evetually kill you, as I have found out lately.

So it has been rough, but I guess it could have been worst.

Thanks for the responses, and everyone have a great day..

Gary

Just rambling me again - yes anal itch, all the time, and for the info of others not quite in the same generation - our parents use to deworm us - get rid of worms and parasites.  they made us take this medicine, and then when we went to the bathroom, well, they would inspect it (I know yuk) to see if they could see anything, and to make sure the medicine worked.

But this has not been done for years and years, and I too, am wondering why we do not on a regular basis

Hi guys --

Just to set people's axiety at rest on this score, I've had worms once as an adult (now where else would I make this confession but here?! lol) and you *really* know it -- not a *bit* of an itch -- itch and weird sense of squirminess "up there" that I cannot describe (nor would you want me to! lol). And you get the itching at bedtime/night, so if you're reading this and suddenly feel a bit itchy in that region, you *haven't got worms*!!

Now I call that a world-wide expose!! ;)

Good point - as yukky as this score is, everyone has worms, of some sort or another. But then there are the parasites that invade us from doing things like I did - in contact with lake water. You will know the differnce, because with parasites, you always have stomach problems, diarreha and the likes. In my case, I did not get it treated quick enough, and with this, the bacteria infection from the parasites started to go into various organs. It's just that when we were kids, our parents use to deworm us as we, I guess were dirty little people, always sticking things in our mouths and consuming dirt and whatnot.

As we get older, we likely don't do these things (not as much anyways) ha! and the body eliminiates them as we go along...

Montezumas revenge is similar to that as well Gary, Yuck (I had it after a recent visit to Mexico)! I feel for you and am glad you are feeling better. As for sticking things in our mouth taste has always been away to dicern good things from bad. There was no "Deworming" in our house but I do remember the pills that would change the excrement color to blue and would clean one out. As for us being dirty little people, I am not so sure, I think we were inquisitive yet to young to realize the consequences of eating the mud pie or whatever
I should have paid more attention in typing class!

i got this from going to aslaska a long time ago and drinking from glaciers!!!!! taht is right glacier  ice taht was 3000 yrs old and i was told from the people who were serving it at the cabin i went to for an alaska salmon back that this was the pureist form of water you can get, well i got a bad infection from it, the nausa, the anal itchi-wowsers, and the poops from it all from being cool and drinking glacier ice!!!
 
now i dont want to drink anything taht has not been treated with chorine or bottled water!!!
 
i had to take flagly also to get rid of it then difuclan to get rid of yeast over growth, it was a misery al the way around, thank god for flagyl. you can also get c-dif from person to person very easy and it can live on clothing alaso which is very dangerous b/c it can come back and come back gain and again,,,,,so when you are in a public rest room WASH YOUR HANDS AND DONT SIT ON TOLIET SEATS AS YOU CAN GET C-DIF from public restrooms is waht the doc told me!!! and it runs rampant in hospitals with the sick and old people die from this it is horrible
 
PS THERE IS ALSO A STRAIN OF C-DIF that is resistant to flagly so make sure you dont get this nasty infection if posssilbe at all. and over in africa they have things taht are so bad  it would make your blood run cold for which there are no treatments and i am not talking about ebola either but things taht will make you blind in the water and worms that will live under your skin!!
here is what you can get if not careful when traveling to foreign countries
 
malaria, cholera ( CAN LIVE ON CLOTHING FOR UP TO 6 weeks) typhoid fever, HEP A/B, shistosomiasis in water, river blindness, guinea worm, sleeping sickness, trichinosis, trachoma to mention a FEW

and some ofthese are not confimed to only the digerstive tract but to the eyes and other organs and travel via the blood stream

Tell you what, with all the hand-sanitising that goes on with our forum members (you know you've got OCD when...!), I think we're probably a fairly low-risk community overall -- give or take the odd glacier drink! :)

Good morning to you all.....today, wow, feeling more like me - what a relief.  As I mentioned earlier, I had to go on another antibiotic to further cleanse a bacteria infection that I had, wich is a common procedure after having a parasite thingy. And this seems to be helping things along as well.  My next step is to go in for a colonic cleanse, to rid me of anything else that got missed.

It's amazing that a little bug can cause so much grief....and so much clean up work to get rid of all the stuff that it does to you.  the other thing that is high is my metal toxicity - again common - so I am intaking things like green tea suppliments  and stuff like that to detox myself....

My goal is to have me back to being me again by the end of December, as my family and I are going to Jamaica - and yes I am nervous in going - for obvious reasons.

Parasites are becoming more and more of an issue in North America.  I live in western Canada (Alberta). and there are over 900 reported cases per year of this kind of parasite infection.  By the time the victim gets in to see a doctor, signs of nervousness, anxiety, dizziness, etc has already set in - and the first reaction received is that the patient is stressed, and given meds like Ativan to mask the problem, but certainly does not cure the problem.  This unfortunately is not good, as with these infections, it just continues to get worst and worst, and no amount of Ativan or other similar meds is going to do anything about it.

Hope that everyone has a fantastic day..

Gary
