Thank you for your kind words, Toridemi.
I just want to share what I've learned so that others don't have to dig like I did just for some basic info.
As far as the co-infections go, if you can afford to have the test done - especially since it would be 80% covered - I would go ahead and have it done. You just may test positive for one or more! Although, don't be surprised if you don't test positive for any of them. Like we said, it still doesn't mean that you don't have it.
By having the tests run, you could wind up with 'hard proof' of having co-infections. Although if the tests come back negative, know that you can usually tell what co-infections you have by going through symptom lists as well.
The 'skin popping' that you are trying to describe - is it possible that it's actually small pops within the muscles? That is fairly common. Those would be muscle twitches. They can be incredibly frustrating, although pretty harmless. The muscle twitches that I find the most frustrating are the ones around my eyes. Others can't hardly see them, but it feels like my eyes are practically winking at people on their own!! LOL!!
Be sure to start the Magnesium though, that will help with muscle twitches!
