Long time stalker sometime poster here. I am in a bad way right now, and hope to get your thoughts. I have an unyielding yeast problem, and, after reading your FAQ - I'm pretty sure a bad parasite problem as well. My symptoms, (lately), frozen right shoulder / terrible spine trouble (can barely move right arm), anxiety, insomnia, (terrible, jerking awake at night no sleep for past 3 days), constipation (despite two Dr. Shulze's IF#1 last night too), and, when I do manage a BM, I have rectal bleeding, bright red blood, dripping and enough to saturate a wad of T.P and coat the stool. I get this kind of bleeding on and off for years - ever since my other problems started, in fact, but I always just ignored it and told myself it was hemmorhoids... [I have done three Liver Flushes so far and all have produced rectal bleeding (i thought from the ES)].
I do do bowel management (which has really, up to now, helped my mood a lot), however, I find lately, since the latest round of bleeding started, that colonics and enemas make me feel really really bad, dizzy, weak, flu-like feelings coming on right after a any colon hydrotherapy session. P&B leaves me very constipated and is hard for me to pass even with IF#1 or just Casgrada etc., and when a P&B does come out the other end, it is usually accompanied with tons of yellow mucus.
Yuck yuck yuck. I don't want to do myself an injury with home enemas or even office colonics if I've got a diverticula that is actively bleeding and infected (and I'm beginning to suspect that I do...), so I guess my question is... what now? should I get a colonoscopy? should I continue w/ colonics or enemas anyway and hope that will help the problem?
so, does this sound like bad parasites or what? (in fact, I think I saw what looked like a worm once after a colonic (it looked like a thin strand of mucusy stuff with a red vein in it yuck yuck yuck)). and do you think the bleeding is diverticulitis? or could it just be a hemmorhoid after all? how should I go after this parasite problem (i've tried paragone before with no real luck, but I was a lot more congested in the bowel then.... i dunno)? not sure what to do next. any suggestions would be wildly appreciated.
sorry to hit you with all of this out of the blue - but I've just now come out of denial and realized that 1. I probably have a bad infestation and 2. I may have diverticulitis as well!
Would it be worthwhile doing a fast, maybe even a water fast, to try to really get these guys?
I can't thank you enough for being out there and for all your helpful suggestions.
