|My Morgellons Story:
In the early 2000 I was sent to the hospital by my GP for a test to see if I had anthrax
poisoning. I had an outbreak of open sores on my leg and foot. I had been to Bulgaria for
my holidays and I reckon I was bitten by an insect that would not heal.
One year later I had another outbreak of lesions on my leg and foot. My GP gave me a
steroid cream to rub on after 4 weeks it started to heal up. I started to feel very tired
and weak at that time I was working full time. I was coming home from work and preparing
the evening for my family and as soon as I had cleaned up I was going to bed.
It was like I would die if I did not lie down. At this
time I had another outbreak crystal like things on the wounds
but this time it was on my hand. Again I want to the GP and was given antibiotics and
In the year 2006 I woke up on Saturday morning at 6-30 am with a pain in my back and a
feeling of weakness and an itching all over my body. As I stood out of bed something fell
out of me into my PJs bottoms I stepped out of them and things were failing out of me like
set jello’s about 8 in all. My husband drove to my mums and brought her to me they
called a doctor when the doctor came to my house. She was very shocked she had never seen
anything like the things that came out of me.
As a precaution the doctor decided to remove my womb . When the surgeon saw me after the
operation he told me it was like something had attacked my uterus. It was so swollen
he had never seen anything like it. He thought it would relive the tiredness I was
feeling. But it didn’t. A year after this I started to have more outbreaks of
crawling in my right hand this led to the open wounds with crystal like things on the
wounds on my hand. Another visit to the doctor and more cream and antibiotics.
Seven months later I had another breakout this time I was sent to the hospital and they
gave me a diagnosis of having shingle’s. They started me on a five day course of
Famvier. I have had 4 outbreaks of so called shingles since then. My job could not wait to
get rid of me it was like I was making them sick. I would turn up to work scratching and
with open lesions on view. I lost my job but I think I would have had to leave any way
because I had no energy any more even living was an effort for me During all this time I
was having very debilitating aces and pains in my joints.
I had MRI scans for arthritis. I also had 2
operations on my knees to relive the swelling in them, and the pain this I still have I
also have it in my shoulders, elbows, hands, and fingers. I take all sorts of pain killers
for the pain. I now have the biting sensation in my feet and legs. I find a tablet called
ZERTEX very good for easing down the itch and Solpadol helps with the pains. I am very
badly scared from the outbreaks and a deep discoloration of the skin any where there were
My hands also seemed to have shriveled into
looking like an old women’s hands. 6 Weeks ago I was sent to the hospital where a
doctor for infectious disease has a clinic. He took a history of the outbreaks and lots of
blood tests. I am awaiting the results for that in the meantime my daughter saw a
programme on the TV about Morgellons and
e-mailed the information I was shocked I never herd of it before that day. I spent hours
crying with relief for the first time I identified with something. I rand the infectious
disease doctor and mentioned Morgellons he said he never herd of it. I than rang my GP and
asked him he also said he never herd of it.
He looked up the net and said I did not sow all the symptoms of Morgellons because I was
not claiming to see worms coming out of my flesh I explained I always thought that the
threads were from clothing I would spend hours picking them off the soars.
