  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Pravastsin sodium 40 mg
    Began pravastatin 2 days ago...my. blood pressure spiked.
    Due to this rx
  • Syntroid and pruritus
    I have been on levothyroxine for more than ten years and have had two episodes, each lasting over several months of unbearable itching. Doctors seem to deny any connection but are also unable identify the cause of the itching. None of the tests pick anything. Antihistamines are not much of a help. I am still in the throes of the second episode and life is plain, simple miserable.
