I've been sick for 7 years, including pain in my upper abdomen.
Last May I started my first parasite treatment ( Deseret Biologicals ). I didn't see anything, so assumed I didn't have parasites.
Around July/August, I decided to try Parastroy. Halfway through that I still saw nothing, so I stopped it.
Sometime last fall I randomly decided to finish the rest of the Parastroy ( keep in mind, I'm still sick ). I started to feel a little tickle in my gallbladder and thought I was now having gallbladder issues, so I did a few liver/gallbladder flushes. Saw nothing. No stones, nothing.
I've had an abdominal CT scan, ultrasound, x-ray, endoscopy/colonoscopy. Nothing. Just said I had a little stomach thickening and a slightly fatty liver.
Noticed that I wasn't digesting a lot of things, so I started Betaine and enzymes. Those two things made my stools look normal again It had been mushy.
The tickling increased and moved into my right side. Then it moved to the mid abdomen, and then to the left abdomen.
And now I feel it all over my entire upper abdomen, sometimes, down my right side, sometimes down my left side, and sometimes both sides simultaneously. I can feel it in my back, too.
It had progressed into full-on thrashing and crawling and biting. Feels like I have three babies in there.
I took 3 days of Albendazole, and am to repeat in 14 days. This made the thrashing even worse.
Now I am on Humaworm.
I cannot take this movement/thrashing/wiggling/crawling/biting much longer. It's making me crazy!
You can literally see my abdomen move.
I am way too embarrassed to go to the hospital for fear of being made fun of ( the hospital in my area is horrible ).
It feels EXACTLY like worms crawling in there. BIG WORMS! But I'm gaining weight, not losing.
Is there a chance this is not parasites and something is freakishly terribly wrong?
I am making sure I have regular bowel movements, but I just don't see any critters coming out. Well, just a few rolled up tomato skin ones.
Please tell me what you would do. Go to the ER? Tough it out and continue antiparasitics?
This is making me crazy. I am constantly holding my abdomen to keep the thrashing from going too crazy ( and I can feel things moving as I hold it ).
I'm about to cry just typing this. Please advise.
Thank you and God Bless you all who deal with this.
