I have been reading your posts on Earth clinic for some time now. I am reaching out to you because I am so scared and no doctors treat Morgellons here in California and I believe I may have it. I hope you will be willing and able to help me.
I was diagnosed with scabies in Jan 2014, but doctor didn't do a skin scraping, just diagnosed by visual eval. I had the characteristic burrow lines and red, pimple bumps. He gave Premethrin cr?me 5% which I also applied a week later. It seemed to work. My husband and 10 year old son also did it. Their less serious bumps went away too. Husband still has rosacea on his nose and itching on his back for which no doctor for years has really tried to figure out. Just says dry skin.
Recently, the bumps appeared on my right inner arm. Again, one that was in a line like the burrows of scabies. I had left over Premethrin and covered myself and did it a week later with a new tube from the pharmacy. Didn't have doctor look at me. During the week between Premethrin applications, we went into the hygiene mode needed for scabies and are still in it. Washing sheets daily. All sleeping in different beds. Washing clothes after one use. Putting Borax in laundry and washing and drying at high heat. Keeping laundry in plastic bag, diatomaceous earth and vacuuming a lot…
Then, I was feeling something crawling in my eye lash lines and around my bridge of my nose. I got faint brown trail line without any raised blisters on the bridge of my nose. Then, I got a sore that didn't come to surface but it was like a swelling on the side of the bridge of my nose. I think it might have been a nest.
The crawling and itching was in my hair and around my neck in the back by hairline I got some larger pimples but I think they were nests. So, I did the Borax/H202 baths twice and nothing much better. Didn't see anything in the water. I did the 2 cups bleach bath + h202 2x's. The first time I felt really good and clean and skin felt soft and smooth.
The second day, before I did the 2nd bleach bath, I exercised on the treadmill and got some itchy, angry red pimples come out on my legs, I went in the pool and Jacuzzi for a little, but the bumps kept bothering me so I ran a bath. I put 2 cups bleach, 1 c H202, and some drops of Oregano oil. This time my legs got really itchy (they had already been itchy, but got worse), so I scratched them underwater back and forth. Then, I saw all sorts of weird debris in the water and all different shapes and colors. I got really scared because I had read about Morgellons in my scabies research.
I am not taking any more baths due to fear of this repeating. I don't know if it was a good thing to have that stuff come out of me.
I am taking 1/4 baking soda in 4 oz H20 2 x/day. I am not consuming coffee or alcohol or any carbs now. Just meat, eggs, veggies, a little dairy.
I also take:
- Vit C 1000mg every few hours
- Garlic Kyolic for Immune support 2 pills-3x/day
- Sovereign Silver
- Stress B complex
- B12 sublingual
- Mixed carotenoids
- Alpha Lipoic acid
- Bio-Sil drops in water
- Plus Some other supplements like antioxidants.
My current condition after doing this for a week and just having put on the 2nd Premethrin cr?me yesterday is that I have a few itches in my head and body once in a while. My legs are still showing the signs of all that came out of them 3 days ago and have the red bumps, but now they don't itch. My arms are practically all clear. The crawling around my eyes in basically gone. I thought I felt it once when I leaned forward and pressure built up around my eye from gravity.
Now, though, I do feel things moving under the skin in my feet and ankles like things are landing on them lightly. I never see anything when this happens.
I am having very low energy, dry mouth, and get winded going up stairs. I feel also that I am not sharp in my mind, I think due to low energy.
I am worried because I don't want a neurological condition to develop. I have a beautiful son to finish raising and life to live. I also am a psychologist and want to keep being able to help my patients. I am 49 years old.
I thought maybe I was getting so tired yesterday and today because I'm taking too many supplements and vitamins and so extremely thirsty because having difficulty processing them through liver/kidneys. So, I thought I should reduce. But, then I also considered if this herxheimer response? I also had a dull headache this morning and yesterday.
I want to improve my immune system and know that exercise is needed and I've not been doing it for a few years now and have gained weight. 5'5” and 190lbs. As a therapist, I just sit for hours with my clients. Should I try to keep exercising even though I currently have this very low energy?
Thank you for all you have done and in advance for any direct help you can provide me now. You are truly a gift to this world and I know you are extremely busy. I wouldn't bother you knowing this, but due to my desperation, I am reaching out. If you have a contact in California or US of someone like yourself that you can refer me to, that would also be appreciated.
Most Sincere Regards, S...
