I don't think I can handle this much pain.

Jun 12, 2015 10:18 AM

I have handled a lot of pain and when I have gone to the Doctors office, I have always scored my pain level one under thinking there is always much worse to go. But I am done. The pass three days have been extreme hell. I have never thought possible for me to be at a ten. It was a combination really. All of them feeling like a ten individually. My neck, the arthritis in it was so bad that it felt like what I heard people who have meningitis. It was difficult to move it up and down or to the sides. I couldn't find my neck brace to help support my head. Sometimes it feels like my head gets to me to heavy for my neck. It really is not a pride thing.☺️ then there was the issue of my low back. The pain was so unbearable that it radiated and it stung. I have hard wood floors and for some reason that makes it worse. Then there was a lot of pain right below my neck. It was so bad that my family was making fun of me because I couldn't stand straight up. I didn't see what was funny. I am absolutely miserable. My pain level is still a nine. My body now feels bruised all over. There has to be light at the end of tunnel soon.

Profiler, there is a light of hope. My neck hurts similar to yours sometimes, not as heavy but pinching and causing headaches. The times I've been stooped over is when I would go to a chiropractor. As much bad rap that they get, their treatments work when nothing else does. Another good option is a medically professional massage to loosen the muscles that are likely squeezing off the nerves running through them. Don't give up. Your family may not realize the severity of your pain. They may be trying to make you laugh in order to get your mind off your pain. Laughter releases some brain chemicals to help with pain. I'm praying for you! πŸ™πŸŒΌ

I just realized that part of my problem with having pain all over is that the parasites have again caused me to have hundreds of cyst all over my body. This happens every several days but it seems like the cyst doubles every time. Every time a cyst happens in the same place. They happen under the skin. It causes the area to harden. They say it is calcifying. Right now I have the worm wrapping itself around my neck several times and it is pulling hard. I wish I could get the help I need. I called the dermatologist like you suggested. It is going to take at least a month to get in.

Have you tried to see a different dermatologist sooner? I really think because these things are under your skin and the dermatologist biopsies anything they remove, not only will you get a verified diagnosis, but you'll also be referred to a specialists a lot easier if needed. Hopefully the dermatologist can treat it but if they think these things have multiplied really bad they may refer you to an specialist who handles them (I can't remember what those docs are called). (I don't want to type what they are because all "bugs" give me the itching credit crawlies just thinking about them! Lol. 😨 You know I'm a true arachnophobic!). Anyway, if you call different ones you might get seen sooner. Hoping & praying for you! πŸ™πŸŒΌ

I called all around. I found one of the best and I was able to get in sooner.

That's really great! Keep us posted. You're in my prayers. πŸ™πŸŒΌ

I'm glad to hear you're able to get in sooner, Profiler. Work on your meditation, your biofeedback and breathing. You're in my prayers. Please keep us posted on your progress. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸ»πŸŒΊ

Profiler, when you say the cysts are calcifying, that doesn't make sense, perhaps you could explain. See, if there is calcification, then the cysts are becoming solid and stone like and there is no longer fluid in them. Is it possible that the cysts (or actually the casings that the worms are hatching from) are actually causing really bad and thick scar tissue where they are??? I don't understand how the doctors in the ER won't open one of the these cysts that are so close to the surface of your skin and pull one of these critters out so they an see exactly what you are dealing with and what type of medication will eradicate them once and for all. The only medicine I have ever known of that kills worms like that is Ivermectin. (As I had said in a prior post, they give it to puppies to kill the worms they are usually born with and also they give it to horses in larger doses once every six weeks to keep them from getting the worms or killing them if they do get them. I know that there have been instances where I have heard it used in humans to kill parasitic infections such as yours. I hope and pray for your sake that the dermatologist opens one of those things and gets out what's inside and gives you the answers you need so very much to heal and get better. Then after you get that answer, take all of those doctors who called you delusional to court and sue their asses off because that is what they deserve for the shoddy medical treatment you received from them, if you can even call it that. Keep us all posted.. I send you hugs and you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Profiler I am happy to see that you finally got an appointment with the dermatologist. Hopefully he will be able to get one of those little buggers out of there so you can get the right treatment. Like Alwayz said and sue those other Drs. Because of their refusal to believe that they were in you all of this time with no treatment.

When I say calcifying, that is what they say they would do. The cyst that I have had over and over in the same spots are starting to turn hard. It feels like there is a crust over them on the inside. I have felt the rest of the arm and there is only two other spots where they happen a lot that this is happening to but I say that this is happening because that is what the medical books describe happening in time to the muscles that have the cyst on them. They say eventually, they will become so bad, that only surgery will correct them. I am telling you off the top of my head of what I think I remember. So if I messed up, excuse me. I am almost definite that is what I read in one med university site.

Profiler, when is your dermatology appointment?

Jun 29, 2015 7:23 PM

Profiler, please I hope that I didn't offend you, I certainly didn't mean for my question to seem that way if it did.. I am just trying to get a better understanding of the full picture of the cycle of these things. I am sure you didn't "mess up" you have done extensive research on this and I am sure you know what it is you are talking about. I hope that your dermatologist appointment is very soon so that perhaps you can finally get on the road to recovery and know exactly what type of parasites you have and how to get rid of them and never, ever get them back again. Hugs and all the very best, Profiler, you're in my prayers. (And, again, I am sorry if I offended you by the way I asked you the question, I didn't mean to if I did. I am behind you 100 percent and I also BELIEVE that you are dealing with horrible things that these doctors are calling you delusional for).
