alexandria7467 , thank you, thank you! I think you are absolutely right! I went to a clinic today where the doctor had never seen anything like it, and prescribed a $4,000 plus medication (Albendazole) for me to take. I cannot afford that, so did not take it. Praise the Lord! I have been searching the internet for hours and hours and finally came upon this site and have been reading Sw1ndle's postings and others' responses. Which is where I read yours. And I have been taking fish oil capsules for about a month now and they are about the size of my egg, with an oily substance inside. They have a seam, which the egg does not have, and the egg's shell is like a thin chicken egg shell in ways, but having passed through my body's workings probably altered the capsule to that degree. And the fish oil capsule stinks, just like my " parasite egg" stinks! Thank you, thank you, for posting as you did! You saved me much grief and money! No wonder I had no parasite symptoms, LOL!
