I have had food poisoning almost a year ago but I have been sick with trichinosis ever since. Now I'm to the point I hurt so bad all over. My bones hurt and I feel like they are breaking my wrist, forearms, hands and shoulders; it hurts to move them. It's unbearable and my stomach hurts. I have complained about having trouble with my heart and I am a heart patient but nobody believes me. It's only getting worse and I've lost a whole person in 6 months.

My symptoms of trichinosis started with stomach cramps and loose stools for 2 weeks. At first I thought it was IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and bought drops from the chemist, which didn't help. I was diagnosed later by my kinesiologist who prescribed a natural remedy for parasites. One week later my eyes were badly swollen when I woke in the morning. This lasted a week. Then new symptoms started which were upper and lower back pain, pins and needles in my hands at night and I noticed my heart beating harder at night. Shortness of breath and fatigue also followed. I was eating a lot more food, yet losing weight. It has now been 5 weeks since the symptoms first started and 3 weeks since taking the herbal parasite mix. I don't feel any better, so I am making an appointment with both my general physician and kinesiologist this week.

I think I have Trichinella parasite (trichinosis). I have been sick for 12 days now. It started with nausea, vomiting, vertigo, lethargy, leg cramps, conjunctivitis and headache, then diarrhea.

Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, weakness, fatigue, loss of concentration, and vision problems were my symptoms of trichinosis.

I had poorly cooked ribs and 1 day later I had loose stools, and 3 days later I had rash on abdomen and chest, and was itchy. I am beginning to respond to Stromectol.
