We got a rescue in February. Mind you, I have been dx with other parasites
in the past, mainly Roundworm and Ascaris
and have done various parasites
cleanses, including HM. I'm sure they're still around though. Anyway, so we adopted our puppy and she turned out to have Giardia. She was treated for it and after two rounds of medicine, finally tested clear. I was instantly worried about getting the Giardia, as I know it can be highly contagious for humans. So this was back in February. About 2 months ago, Julyish, I started getting all day dizziness, motion sickness and short bouts of vertigo. The dizziness lasts all day long. I have had a blood panel and everything is normal except for high eosinophils. All the rest of the blood tests were normal. Had my eyes checked out and they are fine. No ear pain or itching, so I don't think it's an inner ear problem. I do have neck problems, but have had them for over 2 decades and they never caused this. After the dizziness started, shortly after I started getting horrendous reflux. Now I've had issues with reflux off and on for years, but nothing like this. Digestive enzymes and HCL do nothing. Swedish Bitters have helped a little. My blood test did indicate low stomach acid, which is not news to me. I was tested three years ago for H-Pylori and it was negative. Now everything I eat is making me sick and I am eating very bland. I wake up around 2 or so nearly every night with a racing heart and palpitaitons. The palpitations come and go throughout the day. I have almost no appetite and I feel like drinking a lot of water.
I do have candida, lyme, eptstein-barr and was just tested for Pyroluria (waiting for test results to come). I am also overweight and have extreme issues losing it. I know this also can be an indication of parasites. I'm also having nearly daily bouts of anxiety, jitteriness, irritability, etc.
Does it sound like I have contracted the Giardia? Thanks for any advice. I don't think I would even bother with stool tests, because I have gotten plenty of false negative ones in the past. The only positive test I have had in the past was saliva, showing signs of Roundworm. Oh also, should my husband be treated at the same tikme as me, if I do have it? I have adrenal fatigue, so going through a parasite
cleanse worries me, but having them in me wreaking havoc worries me more. Thanks.
