  • Babesia and apergilus
    I was diagnosed 2014 with Babisia. For years after being in a river in BeliIze I was so sick with stuff coming out of my skin. Way back in 03' Dr sent sample away and it came back cellulose. No help for years. Now in 15' I've come up with Apergilus in my sinuses. For years I have sweated. No help. Now I've had sinus surgery. Just before surgery I all of a sudden have double vision. Unsteady on my feet. Surgery did not help. I think I have invasive Apergilus and no one so far is helping me. I believe the fungus originated possibly from tick bite in Belize or from water in river. Asoergilus being a fungus does have spirochetes which are cellulose. Whatever,
    I'm a mess with no help.
  • Joint pain/depression/thinking unclear
    I've been on Effexor 75mg. for 8 month's and recently have been decreasing this amount so that I can safely stop taking this all together. I believe that in the beginning month's of taking it, it had helped with my hot-flashes and anxiety. A few month's ago I've noticed that it isn't helping my anxiety but has added a few more problem's as well. I now have bad swelling in my finger's with bumps on top of the joints. Also, crying, depressing, and lack of interest. The muscle's in my arm's ache. I can't concentrate at work which is very embarrassing.
    My plan is to decrease amount of this medicine and go completley off. So far, I've been taking 37.5 mg. for a week and seem's withdrawal symptom's are not so bad as of yet. Hopefully, in a few more wks. I will be completely off of it.
    I have decided to invest in Herbal remedie's instead. I have never had a problem with all-natural before. As for the hot flashes I will use Black Cohosh. I will also use natural herb's for anxiety. I am really doing my research. I believe that the all-natural route is better than the synthetic med. because there are way too many bad side effect's.
    Another thing I didn't mention was the weight gain from Effexor. I sure hope I lose the weight that I gained! That also add's to the depression.

  • The dangers off fluoridation
    I live in an area where the water has been fluoridated for approximately 55 years and have been treated for an underactive thyroid since 1978. I have also suffered from urge incontinence since 1967 and for 4 years have also had the symptoms of skeletal fluorosis although I have not been able to get the tests to confirm this. About 2 years ago I read about the dangers of fluoride and stopped using the tap water for drinking and cooking but still had to use it for bathing and still swam in the local pool. Also I have always drunk about 3 pints of tea a day. Recently it was found that there might be a problem with my kidneys so I stopped drinking tea and swimming. I had been going to the toilet 16/17 times a day but after about 5 weeks this was down to 7/8 times and the urgency was gone. Also I was given a follow up kidney function test after 6 weeks and that was normal. A few weeks later I was shopping in an area where the water is not fluoridated and risked having tea in a cafe there and the irritable bladder symptoms came back almost immediately and lasted for several weeks.
