Your skins crawls. The prickly sensation under your skin is constant , it never seems or ceases to end. You may even of seen “insects” flying out from under your skin. Perhaps you have had a rash for years – that no matter what medical treatment – what pills, salves are employed – that rash will just not go away. You may well have gone from doctor to doctor , from dermatologist to medical specialist , yet your symptoms continue. Think Morgellon’s disease or syndrome .
Morgellons disease is the “Lyme Disease” of our century. In the same way and means that people who now have Morgellons , have fatigue , loss of concentration among other symptoms and where told by medical care that their concerns were imaginary and did not exist , those who have contracted Morgellons Disease in 2009 / 10 are told to forget it all. “Nothing is wrong with you at all”. “Get over it”. Lyme disease and those who suffered from Lyme were all told the same details. Yet now Lyme disease is now an accepted contagion along with diagnostic tests along with medical test titres. Morgellons disease fits in the same vein and boat – In the case of Lyme Disease it was that in the 1990’s no specific tests could done to positively ascertain and diagnose the illness. It was if the doctors were working in the dark without specific accurate diagnostic tests and processes. Much like a sleep lab physician , working with a patient who was tired and exhausted all the time , yet not able to positively determine the patient’s ailment , before the days of standardized sleep labs and testing procedures.
Its not your imagination. No doubt about it. Just seeking adequate health care for Morgellons Disease / disorder / Syndrome is exhausting and frustrating just by itself.
Lyme disease used to be a non-disease . Is Morgellons a hearty disease that patient’s simply make up on purpose in their minds or fantasies . It was “all in their head “, they were “imagining it ” , neurotic , or just “plain crazy”. Lyme Disease and its suffers became a cause celebre in the media. Research programs were put in place resulting in diagnostic procedures , tests and the teaching of the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease to medical students as well as practicing doctors and medical treatment staff in medical clinics , hospitals and health care faculties and facilities across the land. It took some time , for the research and work to be done , yet now Lyme Disease is an actual recognized disease and illness. The Center for Disease Control (C.D.C.) in Atlanta Georgia has placed its seal of approval on the diagnosis and treatments of Lyme . Such is the case and situation as well with Morgellons Disease.
