On Tuesday I sent some thumb prick blood sample to Dr Andrew Wright in Bolton, UK, who uses a veterinary microscope to look for various nasties . Today I had my phone consultation with him. He has found Cryptostrongylus Pulmoni cysts in my blood - these are worms!(eeyuk) He finds parasites in most of his M.E. patients. You can read about them here if you don't feel sick: http://www.immunesupport.com/library/showarticle.cfm/ID/1215/t/CFIDS_FM & see photos here: http://images.google.co.uk/images?q=Cryptostrongylus%20Pulmoni&ie=UTF-8 He is going to send me prescriptions for worming pills and antibiotics, & recheck my blood in 3 months. What a shame I didn't consult a vet 21 years ago instead of a GP who just repeatedly said 'there's no such thing as M.E.'. Funnily enough, skin crawling sensations have always been part of my ME.
