Subject: A monster inside me
March 24, 2016 5:29 am
I have been working in my basement, in my garage and installed an egress window about 5 feet deep since July. In September am elm tree infested with insects (leaves a sticky substance on cars) fell in my backyard after a rainstorm. I cut it using chainsaw and axe. A few days after i noticed what seemed like dust particles floating in my eyes and also had noticeable bite marks /welts around my ears and eyes. I couldn’t figure out what was going on and had my house inspected by several exterminators but couldn’t find it. One was even bitten and described it exactly like i do, but couldn’t do anything without a sample. I figured out the wooly aphids were everywhere inside and outside because of the tree, but the pros assured me they can’t bite and wouldn’t do what was happening to me. After the tree fell, i had my earlobe randomly start bleeding with little brown pods embedded in it. Barely the size of grain of sand. I tried to remove them but it was too hard to get, i washed thoroughly. I felt them popping thru my skin throughout the days and began to notice sores appearing randomly over my body. Over the following months i lost 35lbs, developed sores on face, eyebrows, nose , lips and ears. Which all bled without touching them. I have taken baths and the tub looks like white confetti/cotton specs were thrown about. I would use oils and vinegars and watch this white matter exfoliate from my skin. By winter this spread all over my body, nothing like chicken pox but bumps, bruises or blotches and a new symptom. Tiny flies/dust like particles were in and on my skin. All over, not just my head. By this point I’ve been to 5 different Dr’s all saying the same thing and it’s in my head. Even though one Dr swatted at a small swarm of whatever this is. Insecticides, tea tree oils and others don’t eradicate this problem but slow down the activity a little. My joints ache, muscles are sore and I eat roughly 5000 calories/day and haven’t gained a pound back. I go tanning to try and burn off the miniscule insects embedded and also shower at least twice/day. My wife has had a few things but nothing like what I’ve experienced. I also notice gelatinous masses in my stool and photographed to show my Dr. He had a sample tested and the results were inconclusive. White floating specs also covers the surface much like in the tub but this usually comes from air bubbles rising up from the feces and/or my skin. My Dr won’t test anymore samples and despite having seen photos , samples, swatted and witnessed a subcutaneous worm extract itself. I can’t afford anymore Dr’s at this point. I can’t sleep, concentrat, experience memory loss and tasks take twice as long if not longer. I can’t begin to tell you how much pain and suffering this has caused. I just want some answers or possibilities of what is eating me alive. I can explain or answer questions if need be. Thanks

Dear Minnesota Slims,
We empathize with your situation, but we do not have the necessary qualifications to provide you with a diagnosis. We do have a robust network of readers who routinely comment to postings of Internal Parasites, and they appear to derive comfort from one another.
Thanks for checking, basically just wanted to know if anyone on staff was familiar with any other cases that were similar so I could do something, anything to better the quality of my life. Thanks again
