I also had these same reactions when I took ivermectin
that my doctor prescribed.
I felt them spread, it was mainly in my feet and in
my guts/lungs. But it moved to the shoulders, and
I also felt the buzzing in my head. It did clear up
my eyes, and also I coughed up some things.
But the side effects scared me enough I just don't think
its a route I can go again.... I became unable to get
up, like my muscles were a rag doll, and I was deeply
depressed for about 3 weeks. I also had diarrea, which
was not good since I'd already had diarrea quite a bit
and it was greatly weakening me.
I looked up ivermectin on the net, and discovered it is a
kind of chemo. the Jimmy and Rosalind Carter foundation
that works with filiarisis had some articles on ivermectin.
Its being passed out like candy in Africa, where lots of
worm problems exist.
I went to see an Ayurvedic doctor, who gave me some over
the counter dewormer herbs, Vidanga, and I crapped loads
of them out over the next 7 days. It did not make me
sick, and instead I felt better. It convinced me that
the answer for this particular problem is not just in the western drugs. It can't be.
I also have spent thousands, literally, and did not get any answers from the physicians I saw at the Palo Alto Medical Facility. IN fact, they suggested I see a psychiatrist. Why do some doctors have such a strange idea that people
in the US simply can't get worms or parasites? The weird thing is, I had problems since I came back from a trip through central america... I saw the clinic, right away,
with dramatic symptoms. But their tests came back negative time after time... and for some reason, the western system rquires them to identify a bacteria/virus/etc BEFORE they can treat you... What an expensive and worthless system that was for what I have/had. Thank goodness I found Dr. Jay in Mountain view. I highly recommend her advice. Vidanga.
There may be other herbs in chinese medicine as well. Be open to what works!
