I got disseminated histoplasmosis from bats at work. Bats carry the fungus. At the age of 52, after I developed disseminated histoplasmosis (gives a positive ANA titer, b/c the immune system is actually attacking the fungus) I (and my coworkers) developed symptoms of...MS, ALS, lupus, fibromyalgia, sarcoidosis, possible trigeminal neuralgia, migraines, a possible lightning type temporal lobe epileptic seizure, plantar fasciitis, tinnitus, weird rashes....
My coworkers and I all had similar symtpoms. I almost died when they gave me Prednisone
Hi Alex - You and my vet think alike :-) She told me to wipe him down with something that smelled like home. They have a blanket that they sleep on, so I wiped him down and she started to relax. It was only about 24 hours until they were back to sleeping on top of each other :-)
