Man Suffers “Buzzing Legs” Among Other Symptoms of a Parasitic Infection

“I have had buzzing legs since 2014 or before,” writes this reader from in his query to us. He reports dealing with a number of symptoms, as well as worms and “items” that come out of his excrement, and he would like to know exactly what it is he is dealing with.

First and foremost, it should be noted that we will unfortunately not be able to tell our reader exactly what it is he is dealing with. Since this situation is clearly medical in nature, and we are not medical professionals, we are not qualified to identify what our reader is dealing with; doing so would be tantamount to giving a diagnosis. So, while we sympathize for our reader and wish we could directly help him, the best we can do is give some tips as to where he can go to get professional help, as well as share his story with our other readers.

Secondly, we find it necessary to advise viewer discretion. Our reader sent a multitude of photographs (for which we are always grateful), and despite not including all of them in this article, there are still a fair share of photos which some readers may be sensitive to. There are photographs of slimy, unidentified organisms, faeces, and other matter which some may consider unpleasant. There are also descriptions of substances coming out of various body parts. If these descriptions sound like something you want to avoid, we recommend you click away from this article now.

Now, to get on with our reader’s situation. Based in Israel, our reader has been experiencing multiple symptoms for many years, including “buzzing legs”, “exhaustion”, “Rickettsia Conorri” (by which we assume he means the fever that this bacteria causes, ’boutonneuse fever’) and “Q-fever”. That said, our reader claims that his “main problem” is what comes out in his excrement, namely “worms and items.” It seems that our reader has been to see a doctor, as he has taken stool tests and is currently on an array of medications. His stool tests have come out negative, but our reader thinks this is “because these parasites give birth to live worms. They seem to come out of orifices, the mouth or birthing channels. They seem to bite on one another to create a bigger black worm.” He has also seen yellow worms and black/white/pink flukes and describes his situation as being “very virulent.” The medication he is taking includes Vermox (Mebendazole), Albendazole, Tinidazole, Metronidazole, Miconazole, Biltricide (Praziquantel) and the ‘Dr Cecile Jadin Antibiotic Protocol’, “which is also killing them.” All of these medications treat some form of infection, be they parasitic or fungal, except for Metronidazole which is an antibiotic that treats pelvic inflammatory disease, among other things. Our reader is also taking natural remedies. After stating that “it would be good to know exactly what [he is] dealing with,” he concludes his query by stating that he believes there are many others who are suffering from the same condition(s) he is, “who are not finding a cure.”

As our reader is already receiving treatment from a medical professional, which we hope is working well, we do not know how necessary it is for us to guide our reader toward finding a medical professional that can provide similar treatment. That said, our reader still seems to be in the dark about exactly what it is he is going through, which is why he contacted us in the first place. So, if our reader wants another professional’s opinion on his situation, or in the case that he is considering looking for medical help elsewhere, what we can recommend is that our reader do one or more of the following: 1) Search for a medical parasitologist in Israel using this directory of medical parasitology consultants: https://www.astmh.org/for-astmh-members/clinical-consultants-directory. 2) Search for a local parasitologist by doing a Google search for “medical parasitologist (name of his closest big city)” or “tropical medicine specialist (name of his closest big city)”. 3) Get in touch with Dr. Omar Amin at the Parasitology Center at https://www.parasitetesting.

In conclusion, we sympathize with our reader and his situation, and it saddens us that we cannot help him more. Despite not being able to provide any direct answers, we hope that this article proves helpful to our reader and that he gets the proper help he needs soon. We wish him the very best and fast recovery from his symptoms!

  1. Same here for a year now. After being admitted to the hospital for seizures out of the blue I continued to be sick. Months later my boys and then pups became ill also. My 14 year old suffered atleast a court seizures also. Something was not right in our old apt either. Our white walls looked like they had dirt all over them and it was almost impossible to get off. I went everywhere for help and still am trying to, but we have been through hell. I have been accused multiple times of hallucinating and doing drugs. Neither of which is true. I even had child welfare and the cops called on me..all for trying to get my family help. I spent 2 weeks in a motel that sprayed for covid and we started getting better for some reason, but we had to go home due to running out of money. Literally no one has taken 10 min to listen or help. I am now finally beginning to feel better..atleast for now, but only because my new employer had me get the covid vaccine..I was miserable for about 3 days. I am now on day 5 and feel about 75% human again. I can actually think again for the most part. My sons have lived through hell. Even tho we r out of the apt we have still suffered. I mainly suffer now because I am still fighting for my kids. They have terrible neurological symptoms still and brain fog. They are 12 and 14 and do not deserve what they have been through because no one took five minutes to listen. I have picture upon picture if one person had taken the time, but not one doctor, therapist, er. .not even their father has taken the time. My 12yo has an appointment tomorrow with the one Dr in town I have not lost complete faith in. Until I could form a complete thought I didn’t even know who else I could take them for help. And when I say I tried everyone I mean everyone including health department, Counceling, my oral surgeon, 2 ers, urgent cares, head of our public health, the governor, and 2(maybe more) state representatives. The only person who even listened and tried to help was an assistant of one of the congressman. I would love to send our story in if it may be of help to anyone and definitely will when I hopefully find out what these things are. I promise you I am 100% in my right mind. I have been in nursing since 1991. When my whole family fell ill I went looking for answers. It started by taking a picture by mistake and finding things in the picture so I kept hunting. I want to help not just my family, but others also if anyone would like to reach out I will gladly try to help them also. I am also willing to consider anyone elses advise also. At this point it is about my children. I fought to be alive so I could help them. I feel if I did not have the little bit of medical experience that I do have that my boys and I may not be alive today. I haven’t found a complete cure, but I do know what has helped us enough to keep reaching out for help. Again, hopefully I will have more answers after my son’s appt and I will be able to share our story also. Bless you all! Hang in there. You all deserve a medal of bravery!

    I have same thing. Font you love the goigle ing disease dr, ect advice? Sure you’ve done that. Also put dilusional in my chart. Dont bother with dr agmid testing, comes back negative. Positive for pinworms. Mine come out of scalp and I find them all over floor, counters, even refrigerator. They are falling off if me. U just wish ui knew if they were dead once off the body. The one pic with white fluff and white ? Looks like a insect which is my worst nightmare. Might be why paradite tests are all negative.

    This is EXACTLY what I have been seeing. My Drs think I need to be admitted to a psych ward because they have no clue what I am telling them. Any help you can give me please? Please.
