1-the cocoons or cigar shapes that come out of my skin sometimes have a creature inside that looks like a rotifer
2-they vibrate ( hum as desssau says ) to collect food, my hands and feet ( most infected )and sometimes other parts hum, mostly at night
3-there is a predatory fungus that goes after it, it drys up and makes a GEL coat around itself to escape. I think the gel coat is the gel in the lesions as well as the fake skin we see helping them escape from us
4-the rotifer is clear unless food in digestive track except for its red eyes. it has up to 5... I have seen these eyes many times now that I read saroantha's posts from mdr describing an organism with 3 eyes and a fish tail. It looks like it has a fish tail but it is not a tail. It is almost microscopic .5 mm big one but can get to 2mm. I have pulled out of my skin recently one that was 3/8".
5-it eats bacteria and algae we never have infections, in the gut people test for no bacteria in the gut, I found eating honey 2-3 t with a food that usually causes sensitivities, inflamed colon and intestines and eventually diarrhea stops these symptoms possibly because it is an antibiotic so the offending food can not ferment and feed the rotifers in the gut ( there is an animal I forgot which that a rotifer is a known parasite of its intestine )
6-they have teeth, one big one ( the biting )
7- used in sewage treatment new since? Found in many waters even flower pots and Connecticut's tap water ...
8- it likes iron ( blood ). Some are parasites of carp, I forgot what else and one publication said "and allegedly, a parasite of man"http://www.springerlink.com/content/h6375g13nl7gj345/
9- this would be speculation to find a link but I thought I would post since I do not believe in coincidence. this guy studies them and stopping biological weapons...
look at pics of them they have many shapes, the gel could explain how i see the dandruff skin sheding things on the outside of a coat then get lots of bits ( rotifers come out gel coat cacoons and have dinner
more to come, google any of this, it is true, this explains a lot but I still have questions
On the rotifers being microscopic I would like to ask why you say they are microscopic? Wickapedia and other sites say they are microscopic and up to 2MM.
"phylum of microscopic and near-microscopic pseudocoelomate animals. They were first described by Rev. John Harris in 1696, and other forms were described by Anton van Leeuwenhoek in 1703. Most rotifers are around 0.1–0.5 mm long (although their size can range from 50 μm to over 2 millimeters)"
-they morf into many forms
-look like sand when dried up in coat
-jump, crawl, and swim,
-wakes up after drying itself out and takes dna from its -surroundings maybe reason why does not show in tests and immune system misses
all this I read, I will come back and post the links, scattered right now...
Demodex, a microscopic parasite which causes skin and outer ear problems in some prople looks sort of like a rotifer. A different species causes mange in pets. A guy on the Parasite Support forum posted about a similar problem, had some small parasite looking things in his cracked heels. I suggested he take zinc to stop his heels from cracking and use a balanced Vit B supplement for skin health. Skin parasites such as mites can be treated with Diatomaceous Earth and there are several natural treatments online which contain various oils. Search for 'human demodex'
There are many parasites which normally infest other animals or are free living which can rarely infest humans. All that they need are a suitable environment. Hulda Clark suggested that one reason they can live in humans is that there is a pollutant present which they require to live or require to cause disease. She would advise serious detoxing and improving immune system health and whole body health.
Thanks for the info and trying to help. I did believe demodex was my problem a long time ago, I have read others before arriving at morgellons think that also. Demodex treatments completely failed me as well.
What I see and have loads of samples of have fibers running through them, around them or beside them. I have a 12x loop and see enough. The roifer is very distinct. It is what I see over and over. The eyes, the foot, the wheels. Rotifers are clear, demodex are not, I see clear creatures shaped exactly like rotifers. They can telescope into different shapes, dmodex stays the same. Rotifers can fill a lesion with gel fast like in fungis vids, demodex can not. I would think the cdc calling in the army division of parasitology ( washington post 2010 ) for demodex mites would not make sense. The rotifer could have been genetically modified for sewage treatment ( I have not found this to be true as yet but I have heard it was true, just need time to find docs )and for some reason become a human pathogen. They dry up and blow in the wind so some do escape the sewage treatment plant. These rotifers in the treatment plants eat plastic which may or may not be significant...
There are predatory fungi that are used on our food crops as bio-pesticide. Fungi can make fibers in the colors I see. I am unsure that is what they are but it seems a reasonable possibility. These fungi are carnivores, and the rotifer is one of their prey
Could you post an image of these organisms? I've seen oil on skin scraping wet mounts with clear shapes which morphed into different shapes which turned out to be oils and fibers which were from fabrics.
may have one soon depending on a home expense ( one for my computer is expensive )
I have been wanting one for a year now.
My clear organisms have eyes, a foot, and one is so big i can see the cillia ( wheels )...
the fibers can come from clothes, did they look like textiles or were they tested. 90% of my new clothes are infected with this now. It infects the textile fibers ( the predatory fungus is my theory ).
I sent a sample to the State Microbiology Lab - this was a scalp scraping and the guy used hair oil. Skin scrapings are examined after clarifying with a potassium hydroxide solution but there was too much oil to disperse.
How was it determined the fibers were textile? Some I have I know are ( due to color ) but there are some that are most likely the predatory fungus. They may infect the textile fibers or look like them I do not know.
two reasons I am thinking of this, most obvious, reasonable explanation for moving hairs... second, cotton is hollow so could textile fibers be infected on the inside and it appear normal to the microscope on the outside?
If you could find a scientific paper or article it would show in the Methods section how they demonstrted the fungi. Movement of the hairs would be do to small currents of water or air or possibly unequal pressure inside the shaft causing small flexing movements
I may be possible to clarify hair by dissolving away the opaque exterior and allowing light to pass through.
Very interesting. One of the (many, many, many) strange things happening in my home environment is deteriorating plastic. For example, the knob to control bath jets broke early on and the plastic lining on shower head has simply disintegrated. I have also had morgellons fibers/artifacts "melt/disappear" when stored in plastic baggies.... On the electrical signal aspect, I have known that I am severely impacted because they literally cause me to asleep. I think it is a well known morg symptom ...... difficulty using electronic equipment and staying awake while driving car. Please let me know if you have any specific site references to review.
Wow. TIL that the critters I am seeing in my microscope are rotifers (not tiny dinosaur sharks as I thought) AND more important, that I am not alone in the electronics issue, and falling asleep while driving!! Truly unbelievable!
Are you still stumped? I have this as well. I'm going on a year. I've been to so many doctors with dismissive responses. I finally took matters into my own hands and after a little research, the photo, video and characteristic comparison quickly narrowed this down to a rotifer species. One attribute that I find inescapable is the fact that I find these objects dried up and "crunchy" around the house so when I learned that a rotifer dehydrates itself to ride out the storm and blow with the wind I found it rather obvious. I have a video where this object is clearly viewable nipping at my finger (upon utilizing zoom). So now that I am as close to positive as an intelligent educated person can be without forensic testing or expert opinion, what do I do about it? I find it difficult to believe that the medical community is incapable of diagnosing and treating??
I looked into Demodex Mites some time ago. The morphology doesn't fit. Demodex Mites have eight legs and appear to have two segments not three. They also don't pull up into a sphere or white granule that is reported by many Morgellons Sufferers.
