I've been aware of this over the past few months and finally decided to post this.
I am quite sure that I have some kind of bug that is entering thru the sole of my feet. It seems that I am breeding these things on my slippers and flip flops. I feel this tiny wiggly feeling on the sole of my foot, then thru the next few days am able to follow their progress up my leg. While in the lower leg, it's the same wiggly feeling but when they get past my knee, it's more like a thumping. I usually can't feel them once they pass about 6 inches above the knee but have felt one that moved up on the outside of my hip.
I originally thought they could be hookworms but hookworms are so small, I can't imagine them producing the thumping sensation. Strongyloides are a possibility but I don't have any larva currens like some report.
as a note....I used Vodka on the wiggly sensations on my feet and leg and it seemed to quiet things down but what seems to work better is Icy Hot Balm.
Any suggestions of what they might be? Is there is ANY possibility that they are Strongyloides or will they always cause larva currens? How would you EVER get a definitive diagnosis?
I have read some good reports of people getting their symptoms alleviated or cured by MMS (miracle mineral solution). I had sensations of wiggling/crawling underneath the skin. I put some Colloidal Silver (2 tablespoons per 4 ounes of liquid soap) in a soap pump and it seemed to help. I also drink it internally. Also, applying alcohol with a cotton pad or cotton ball will probably help too.
Many people have reported severe or adverse reactions with MMS . I am one of them.
There are several protocols regarding taking MMS and titrating the dose. Jim Humble has come out with several.
I didn't follow Humbles' protocol. I started very slowly at a low dose and had a very severe reaction. It was bad enough to dissuade most from every taking MMS again. I took the reaction to be a Herxheimer Reaction.

I believe that MMS probably saved my life. I continue to take it daily and continue my slow improvement.
I have this as well.Are your heals cracked?The only time I had larva currens is when I got very ill.A zapper stopped it.It seems to be strongyloides yet they must be altered somehow as I have had numerous tests for them(stool,blood,colon lumen,endoscope,colonoscopy).Strange thing is when I first got ill a CT scan showed no diverticuli,then after I had extreme abdominal pain they where plainly seen a second scan.It is either morgellons or a geneticaly altered strongyloid.
I don't have cracked heals but I'd have to say that they almost are cracked. Dry and scaly.
As we all know labs are unreliable and it's a fortunate few that actually get a diagnosis. I believe that pinworms can cause diverticulitis and most likely other parasites can also. I had a colonoscopy last summer and the results were normal but with some diverticulitis and 2 polyps were removed. Unfortunately, they did not record the test and now there is no way for me to review it. After watching all the colonoscopy videos and all the research I've done over the past months, wouldn't it be nice for ME to actually see what's going on inside me. Lesson learned. Make sure all tests are recoded and get a copy for myself.
When I was in Mexico, I wondered what kind of bug would bite me on the sole of my feet. After researching, of course, I found out. The strange thing is that I seem to be propagating the little BUGgers. I wear my flip flops in the shower now to protect myself from MYSELF! Isn't that awful....but true. I sprayed my flip flops with Vodka and put them out in the sun for a day and didn't get the wiggly foot feeling for about a week or so. Now they are back. Even washing my slippers didn't work.
I had some crazy skin itching myself. The feeling that stuff was crawling all over my body kept me up all night and I couldn't figure out where it was coming from. I was doing a parasite cleanse and thought that I had some scattering going on, especially because I was also zapping at that time. I was reading some unbelievable reports on these forums about people experiencing scattering so inevitably I thought I had it too.
Well, I figured, what if this is a mite infestation? I went to the health food store and bought myself a nice soap with tea tree oil and sulfur and, for good measure, I got a shampoo with the same ingredients. From the first wash the itching stopped. End of crawling. If you try this make sure you wash your bedding the day you start the treatment.
