I believe that might be what I am infected with, although I have no proof. Several samples gone to the lab with the results "negative". :(
I was very, very sick in January. Didn't get out of bed for two weeks.
I'm taking ivermectin now and will continue to until I have no symptoms. It would be nice to have the assistance of someone with one of those fancy-pants degrees but alas, I'm on my own. ;)
I took ivermectin once, I think, on Jan. 22. Just one dose. Within about 8 hours some of my symptoms started to disappear. Notably, the crushing, searing chest pain.
I took it again 2 weeks later. One dose.
But I've still got the darned things and have decided to keep taking the ivermectin...
I have 'tracks' all over my body from where the critters have migrated. They are INTENSELY itchy. I had been taking prednisone but after reading about steroids causing hyperinfection/disseminated disease, I stopped right away.
I haven't experienced any ill effects from ivermectin. Today is day 7 taking 12 mg/day.
Some literature says ivermectin isn't effective against larvae, some says it is. So I really don't know the answer to that question. Life cycle is two weeks with autoinfection, which I most certainly have. So I'll be on the juice for at least two weeks if I continue to tolerate it well.
