Hi Willow, Wow, what a history! If you don't mind, I would love to chat with you here as we do have similarities, and it may save Matt from some double effort.
I have apparently had parasites for some time (without much issue apparently) until night-time coughing & asthma sent me to the Drs. several months ago. In a nutshell, I took the stomach acid reducers, systemic steroid and a z-pac they prescribed (ignoring the high eosinophils and low WBC, anemia & vit D levels). Pulmonary symptoms stopped but only temporary as now I seem to have a hyper infection of worms (which sent me to CZ where I found all of you and Matt).
So, now have crawling & biting things everywhere from scalp, sinuses down to feet (worse). Sigh. Topical IVM helps as does Quest topically and silver drops in eyes have actually stopped them there. Currently not sure what to do. Focusing on general health, exercise, sunshine for a short while. Discouraged.
