First post! Sorry if it is lengthy but I am glad to find others sharing my experience. Got a new puppy that gave the whole family worms.
I first suspected when my stomach started feeling bloated and gassy and I began to have pain in only certain areas. I'm guessing the worms formed a ball in my intestines and it was making it hard to pass things through b/c I also experienced constipation. I could almost feel them moving I think. I also felt like something was crawling in my throat sometimes and later learned the worms migrate from lungs to be coughed up and swallowed.
I went to the doc and I knew they didn't believe me but they prescribed pyrantel paomate which is supposed to paralyze the worms. After taking about 2 doses (the doc said only take one) I felt pain in one area of my stomach start to loosen and I was able to use the bathroom. I feel much better but I think some remain. This was a week ago and I want to completely kill them off. I started taking diatomaceous earth with no effect yet but its only been two days.
I've been reading stories online and sometimes I get hysterical and scared to the point of almost passing out. This is so disturbing knowing something is living inside me. Any help in dealing w/ this is appreciated.
Btw..I read the eggs are resistant to every chemical in the book. Any tips on disinfecting our house?
