Hello everyone, So this will be my first time reaching out for some help. I have had this living nightmnig  for a year now, and my poor dog has it too. I don't know what it is. How can you treat something yyo have nn idea about? I have been to the doctor multiple times to be basically laughed at and told I'm crazy. I even brought my dog to the vet and still nothing! No help!

I think I’ve seen worms in my stool, but not 100% positive. Even though I want to and need to know, I don’t want to know at the same time. I thought many different things were the problem but I  truly have no idea. I thought it might be candida, or parasites.

It's so weird and it's like there's a cycle of sysymptoms that I go through and then it all starts over again! I am honestly and truly ready to just give up altogether. Just end it all. I have extreme anxiety and depression due to this. I cannot perform my daily tasks, hold a job, I’ve lost 2 different jobs in the last year, and I can’t even hang out with friends or family. I am currently taking classes online and it's not going so well. I’ve developed this obsession on trying to figure it out and it’s like I have OCD or something. 
No matter how hard I try to focus on something else I can’t.  And if by chance I do get lucky and I am focusing on my school work,  I start feeling the things moving around in my hair, on my face,  and my whole body. I cannot figure it out.

It all started out with what felt like little invisible bugs coming out of my ears. They caused rashes and we're very itchy. I could feel them but not see them. That was probably the only symptom for a couple weeks.

Then I noticed that my hair started to get weird. It got very sticky, and seemed like it was retracting back into my scalp, and very very itchy. By this time my ears swelled up immensely. I'm pretty sure I had some form of meningitis.

I didn't go to the doctor for fear of being committed as I had already been told I was crazy a couple of times. This is when I started noticing many other symptoms. Like constipation, bloating, mental fog, memory loss, irritability, extreme hunger/loss of appetite, sticky film on entire body, extreme weight loss like 60 pounds in one month and the symptoms are endless. And it also seems like bugs, insects, spiders etc. Are EXTREMELY Attracted to me. I was and I am still trying all kinds of things. Acv, windex, tea tree oil, deet, etc. It seemed to help a little at first. I then started noticing what looked like my hair, coming out of my skin! No joke! It would make some type of tearing sound and there would be a red scratch looking thing where it came out of. I’m pretty sure it’s some kind of worm.

I have tried so many things. All the stuff I mentioned earlier plus neem oil, eucalyptus oil, cedar oil, peppermint oil, Diatomaceous earth, borax, bleach, sea salt, garlic, olive and coconut oil, turmeric, activated charcoal, and I'm sure many more that I cannot remember.

I took my very first dose of the 1.87 ivermectin paste on Wednesday and then another dose on Thursday. I figure I’ll wait another week before I do 2 doses again. There are things/worms/bugs shooting put of me constantly.  Especially my ears. My ears are still swollen and I can feel the hardness located around my ears.  It’s not as bad as before but it’s still there. 
My lymph nodes are extremely swollen as well.  And there’s so much pressure! When it gets really bad I have to get a knife and poke holes in my ears to relieve it.  Yes,  I make sure to disinfectant the knife first. And to properly clean the areas that I poked at with peroxide and or alcohol. I’m not sure if it’s puss pockets or me just retaining water,  but there’s patches of liquid right at the base of my scalp and neck.  Some times I get these really bad sores too.  And I swear that when I’m washing my hair sometimes  a bunch of gooey stuff flies out and it looks like maybe eggs inside the goo.  Also the things that fly out of me look like an exoskeleton of something and hairs.  Or worms idk what they are but it’s not my hair.  It’s white and I have brown hair. And sometimes it looks like just some type of debris flying out of me. And I know I sound like I’m off my rocker,  but my hair gets stuck inside my ears somehow. I feel like my ears are eating my hair!

Sometimes when I get my hair damp or spray something on it I can see what I think are eggs.  They are tiny little perfectly shaped balls.  And nothing makes it go away. I guess I really don’t know why I’m waiting to redose with the ivermectin, it wouldn’t matter if I overdosed on it.  It may actually be a god send as it would end this misery and living hell. I have come to terms with dying and am not afraid of it.  It is actually harder for me to continue to live like this. if someone can help me I would not be able to express my gratitude with any words.

I am so overwhelmed and just want my life back. Does Anyone have any suggestions or anything I can do that I already haven’t?  I also just started using black walnut hull, Wormwood,  and clove tincture. Oh, and yes I am also trying to treat my dog too. I know that it is a must so we do not reinfect each other with whatever it is that we have. Oh and currently I am also taking clindamycin that was prescribed for a sinus infection (that was the conclusion of my most recent doc visit) and also my dog is currently taking cephalexin and prednisone. (her diagnosis was a skin infection)! Help me please!!!!!!!

I'm so sorry. That sounds horrible. You really do need to get to the root(s) of the symptoms though, and not try to treat yourself without knowing what it is.

If you suspect you may have Lyme or Morgellon's, it would probably be best to see a Lyme literate medical doctor (LLMD). If you just suspect parasites, you could probably get help from a naturopath or a Functional or Integrative MD.

Hi Abnt00,

You are not crazy and I am so very sorry that you are suffering. It does sound like morgellons, which has been linked to the Lyme bacteria and but patients reac/heal better with bartonella treatment. Many morg patients have bartonella also.

I have heard that the dogs of some people with morgellons also have it. It could be that you both were infected in the same area, same time etc.

You and your dog need a llmd that understands morgellons also. Ask your vet to test the dog for Lyme. The dog needs antibiotics.

You need treatment for Lyme and Bartonella if you have Morg.

You need to build your immune system.

Buying Dr G.S. book on amazon "Morgellons:the Legitimazation of a disease" Has excellent information, treatment protocols and more by the leading expert Dr Gs on Morg. I think its about 20 dollars. There is also a section on dogs/pets in it.

Bathing in a warm bath with Epsom salts and 1/2 cup of borax is helpful for some.

Using borax when you wash your clothes is also helpful.

Do you mind telling me what general area/country you are in?

WE can help you find an llmd here you can email me or girle for one in your area.

You can also go to:

Please hang in there, you can get better. It will take time and proper treatment.

Hi Abnt00

I’m so sorry for what you’re experiencing... but I’m glad you found your way here.
We have members who have/had Morgellons.

You really do need help with this - I strongly suggest you find a LL dr to treat you.

I edited your post just to break it into smaller chunks as it’s difficult to read if it’s one huge paragraph.

Although I don't believe I had the severity of what you've had, I have had some similar symptoms.

My suggestions:

1) pick up a copy of Dr. Ginger Savely's book, "Morgellons, the Legitimization of a Disease"
This will give you a good frame work for understanding a way to address your issues

2) get to an LLMD and get Lyme tested and get on antibiotics. This is where I saw my greatest improvement. Mention nothing of bugs. Stick with symptoms only.

3) part of her protocol includes heavy use of antihelmetics (Ivermectin, Albendazole, etc.). Now I couldn't find a doctor to prescribe these to me in the doses she recommends, so I did go the veterinary medicine route. And I took it for quite some time. I'm not recommending this, I'm just telling you what I did. I also made sure I was taking a liver protective supplements at the same time (ALA, milk thistle, Reishi, etc.)

4) get dental issues taken care of. If you have root canals, get them removed. Remove mercury filings too. A biological dentist is the best way to go.

I've been fighting this for a year and a half and have made good progress. But the above is what gave me my sanity back. Good luck.

There are a lot of good suggestions made by the members here. Any doctor you find must first believe you or be willing to guide you through treatment to pay attention to contraindications. I never found that doctor as they are few and far between.

Ive had success with the Klinghart Protocol which is also referenced as the Yu protocol. I also used pet medications and ordered antihelmintics from India.

I remained on an antifungal of one kind or another throughout the duration of my treatment with pharmaceuticals including antihelmintics and antibiotics.

If I had to do it all over again I might first try ozone as a broad spectrum pathogen treatment. You will need to purchase a medical ozone machine and learn how to administer it safely at home. There are ample videos on YouTube to guide you through. I have found a worthy machine at a great price from


I plan to complete tackling any remaining symptoms through ozone treatment.

Some have had success using another broad spectrum treatment using chlorine dioxide or MMS but I dont know any that frequent this forum.
