My throat is so tight

Jun 29, 2015 12:25 AM

These parasites are really getting the best of me. They are all over and now they are around my throat really bad. I use to have one around my throat. It has tightened up to the point that it feels like it is trying to choke me all the time. I can't even feel my Adam's apple anymore. I di find it by moving aside the worm but the tendon or whatever it it is that is usually hard is crushed so that it won't stand up anymore. You can still feel the bone though. There is a second worm on top of it that is much larger. It is wrapped around my throat three or four times. Then it goes down into my chest wrapping around it. It is very large. Sometimes when it is wrapped around me, I feel like it is hard to breath but they insist nothing is wrong. I just started taking pictures of where the parasite is at a certain time and then when it moves or the opposite side, I take a picture of that. I think it may help. I see a significant size difference on one side of my face. I hope this will be a good tool for the doctors. Something has to be done. I don't thing I can survive much longer with this thing inside me. I know that sounds dramatic. I don't mean to me. But it seems so very aggressive at times. When I try to feel it with my fingers at times, it will wrap itself around my neck. I just bought some natural medicine to help. I don't know if it will work. I can only hope. It is green walnut, cloves, and another bottle of some mixture of herbs. I also want to go out and get some pumpkin seeds. They say that helps a lot as well as garlic. I am getting real tired of dealing with this. I have God in my life and that is enough but with not having my family's support, I feel very alone. They want me to forget about it. They seem to think that this whole thing started with the idea that I felt a worm in me. I tried to explain that it started with a particular pain, with a particular type of sore, cyst, lumps, then the feeling of a worm, then worms that wrapped around things. They don't understand that I can't just forget this horrendous pain that takes place in different places where they lay eggs. I wish it was. Two days ago, I started taking medicine for delusions for my family again. It won't work. It didn't work last time. I started off with physical symptoms that I didn't understand. But I wanted it to work. I still do. I woke up the next day. I thought it was gone. I was so happy for five minutes and then I realized I was wrong. But it showed me how happy I would be to accept delusions if that was the case. That I was not close minded. I just wish they would be open minded to my side. Sorry for the rant guys. I am just getting real tired. I don't know how much longer I can go on with this. My resources are getting low.

Profiler I am so sorry that your family doesn't believe you. It has to hurt to think that they think you are crazy. Ask your wife the next time you can get a hold of one of them to see if she can help you get one out of those cysts. Maybe if she can see it for herself she would believe what you have been trying to tell her for so long. Hopefully those new herbs will make them want to come out so you will have something to show them. Will be praying something works for you. Know that you are truly never alone God is walking beside you.

Profiler, your life right now sounds like a living nightmare! I'm so sorry your family nor the doctors can see these things and think you are delusional! That alone would be devastating to me. I'd be in a psych ward by now if I were you, especially since I'm a bug-phobic! (((Hugs))). Have you tried to go to an infectious diseases doctor or hospital? Or have they turned you away? What does the CDC recommend you do? I'm praying that God give you strength & heal you! 🙏🌼

Profiler, my heart aches for you every time I see you posting that this parasitic infestation is not getting any better and that your family and doctors are saying that you are delusional. I know that this is going to sound extreme or even gross but perhaps you can get a small scalpel from a surgical supply store along with long handled hemastats that you can grab onto the cyst when you cut it open. What you need to do is find one in an area (not in your throat or area that has arteries so close to the skin) but another location. Hold ice on it until you cannot feel the skin and take the sharp scalpel (which are so very sharp that when you make a quick cut, you don't feel it) and make an incision, a small one, and then grab hold of whatever is inside the cyst or grab the membrane or sac that the cyst is contained in and remove it from under your skin. If you cannot get the capsule of the cyst to come loose, then just kind of tease the capsule open, grab whatever contents are inside of it and put it in a jar and go immediately to urgent care or the ER. Explain to them that due to the fact that no doctor has helped you in several months and that they are saying this is all in your head that you decided you were going to take matters into your own hands and physically SHOW them what you pulled out of your body. I know that when these parasites multiply, they make these cysts or sacs that hold the larvae and or younger worms that eventually work their way out of the casing and make their way through the body and then start the process over again. You also need to make sure that your wife comes with you or your children (or even better yet, both) so they can see what is happening and then they may realize that you DON'T want to be this way and that all you want is for someone to help you to get this infection eradicated and not have to deal with them ever again. My heart goes out to you and you are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope that you get the help you need and soon... There is absolutely NO reason for anyone in this day and age to suffer NEEDLESSLY. Hang in there, Profiler. We are all here for you to lean on and we are all here to listen when you need to talk, Please take care of yourself and perhaps while you're waiting to see the doctor you can make an appointment to actually go a branch of the CDC in your area. There HAS to be an answer to all of this and you need to be helped to find it SOON.

Profiler Alwayz has a good idea. It would take two people to be able to get one of the little buggers into a container to carry to a ER.

Profiler, do you know what the parasites are?

I'm a science teacher, and I was thinking about something I had shown my students before from the show Monsters Inside Me. It's called Cysticercosis. It's cysts that can form in the human body, and it sounds a lot like what you're experiencing.
