How many times have I been told it's just nerves jumping or it's all imaginary, AND for all those years I believed it.
The first time I recognized the thumping as a possible parasite is when I got scattering after using a zapper and taking herbal parasite cleanse. I felt it in my leg, my arm and my chest. One was under the rib cage just right of the sternum and another on my right side outside my rib cage. I could feel it move when I put my hand on it, as I could with the one that was a few inches
above my knee.
For the past 8 months, I've actually taken my symptoms and weird sensations seriously and am carefully observing and taking note of what I feel. I've been trying to find a more appropriate description rather than thumping and the best I can come up with is a ticking or take your pick, flutter quiver throb pulsation thrash ripple tremble.
Nerve damage. No, that is not it.
Yes, I have had restless leg syndrome, and again, I've been carefully watching this, the ONLY time in the past few months I have had RLS is when the pinworms are out of control. After months I've learned to at lease control or severely limit their access to the outside world (my privates!) and I have NO RLS at all now. Why this happens I can only speculate but there is a connection.
Did you read BluePetunia's posts on how to collect pin samples? It may be worth trying again. Using scotch tape, you could collect your samples or at least do your own investigation. If you buy a magnifier at the very least 14x but probably better to get one that is more powerful. I am able to see the eggs and at times carcasses, if not live ones or babies.
I've taken my second dose of Ivermectin and will let you know if and when I get relief from the pins.
