The Large Part of the worm has wrapped around my neck

Feb 22, 2016 12:36 AM

I am so distressed. I have had the worm wrap around my neck before but it was never this size and it never did what this is doing. It is really scaring me. As far as I can tell it is really long. There was this part of my neck that was really hurting me. It was causing me not to feel my fingers well. So I started rubbing that part of my neck. I did that because I had a huge lump with some swelling about an inch around it. All that was the beginning of the worm. When I started pressing on that hard, it started to seperate line by line. Then I took my finger and guided the worm under the skin to my stomach. I made about fifteen or sixteen trips to my stomach and then after that it went around my neck like five or six times. Then it burrows into the flesh of the neck. What is nice is there is not much flesh in the neck. I have a doctors appointment tommorow so they can check it out. Unfortunately it is with the doctor who think tht it is delusions. But they are at least an eighth of an inch in diameter so they should be able to feel them. My wife and I can feel them real easy. Plus you can feel a line of them comin from my neck to them. Then another line coming from my chest up into my neck.

Like I said it is scary because I have never had anything so scary in my life. It is such a big worm I have seen others but this is a single big one. That scares the hell out of me. I am sorry that I cursed. But I am scared. Sorry for the rant. Best wishes to you all

Profiler, I am so sorry you are stressed and scared. I hope the physicians will help you resolve this for you. Blessings!

Why does the CDC not help you? It just boggles my brain that you don't have university doctors fighting for the chance to treat you. What about seeing which doctors have published anything about parasite infestations then contact the physicians that wrote the article? My heart truly goes out to you and how much crap you have gad to deal with. Take care and know we all care about you.

Profiler, please don't be concerned with the fact that you said hell. I mean I curse like a truck driver and I'm sure that none of us has virgin ears!! I would be scared too. If this is some sort of tapeworms they can grow extremely long. They keep growing in segments. I watched this guy (talk about crazy) on Dr. Oz, swallow a tapeworm egg and then months later, when he finally passed the tapeworm, it was almost 6 feet long!! I couldn't believe anyone in their right mind would do such a thing as an experiment but this guy did. I just wanted to give other folks the perspective of how big some of these things can get. If you go onto you tube, you can see them and you can also see other kinds of parasytic worms. One that was 19 or 22cm long and pulled out of his eye!! You can see it still wriggling.. I'm sorry Profiler, I didn't mean to go off on a tangent. Is there any way that they can get you into the office today instead of tomorrow so that this thing doesn't have the time to move away from the spot?? Or, is there a way that you can get into the doctor's office that is running tests and actually believes and knows that you have a parasytic infection? Either way, my prayers and thoughts are with you and I'm wishing that they are able to take care of this once and for all. I don't want to be hearing that you have to be stressing like this. Hang in there, my friend, you've got a whole family here praying for you. {{{Hugs}}} 💕🙏🏻🌻

Profiler, As AlwayZ said about cursing, don't worry. Apology accepted but not necessary. I've slipped up before from anger, frustration, & fear. Anyone going through this would be scared. Only if it was me, as paranoid as I am of any bug (worms & parasites included) I'd probably have been put in a straight jacket for either clawing or cutting myself to get them out; that or I'd be 6 feet under. No kidding! I'd really have gone insane.

Why don't you ask the doc to biopsy an area? I think the doc who believes you should see this. Maybe just show up at his office without calling. I know I would. Hugs, love, & prayers tomorrow will be very beneficial for you, and you will finally get answers & treatment! 🙂💕🙏🌼
