On my second round and about a week or so in. Two things have happened so far.
The other day my nose felt like it was running, but not the same as if I had a cold. Later on that evening when I came home I blew my nose about three or four times in a row to clear it out. I noticed three spots in the tissue which resembled a worm - half an inch long and about 1mm thick. At each 'end' there was a small amount of blood.
Normally I would not think much of this because it is winter and the dry/cold air. Often times when I blow my nose I have a little blood show, but the fact there were three white worm like strings is what was strange.
Is it possible to be blowing these out of your nose? For some of you readers... during my first HW round I had a day where I vomited after having some alcohol earlier in the day and say 20 or more 'worms' exactly the same size as these just much clearer white and not as translucent as these came up. After blowing my nose I literally felt like I was hooked up to an oxygen mask (I had not breathed that clear in ages) and felt like I was on an oxygen high.
Now, last night. I woke up in the middle of the night and it actually felt like something was moving under my right foot as well as my left rib cage. I am not talking about a tingle, scratch, or anything like that, but like something was actually moving around under my skin. Both of these are new to me and wondering if this is common.
With these experiences I am led to believe I am dealing with ascaris ... how I have no idea.
- Is blowing these out of my nose possible/common?
- Apparently I still have something after my first round... shouldn't the first round have taken care of all this or am I reinfecting myself somehow?
I also would like some thought on my general procedure. I am taking HW every morning around 9:30am and again around 7:30 at night. I may have a small bite to eat between those times and then later in the evening have a large supper (always at least 30 mins after my HW). Does HW work better if I eat 'more' and not on an empty stomach most of the day?
Any other recommendations for dealing with ascaris?
Acne of my face is what led me to learning about HW, but after researching I have quite a few symptoms such as fatigue, wandering mind, face acne, feeling of saliva in the back of my throat (always coughing/spitting or swallowing, very rarely do I have firm stools, feeling of congestion in my lungs, etc. I may be getting a bit paranoid, but everything does seem to match up.
