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,
When I'm not in my right mind, my left mind gets pretty crowded...********************
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..
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
and some ofthese are not confimed to only the digerstive tract but to the eyes and other organs and travel via the blood stream

Rosie - I love your sense of humor!!!!
Have a nice day
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..
