Studies and treatment

i want to start an organization to help find a cure for patm. if you feel bugs crawling on you, and you itch and you make people itch around you, if you make people sneeze, you need to be part of this group. i have had this for about 20 years, been to several doctors..still no help. it's time to get things done ourselves. let me know if you are intersted.

Have you looked into the Morgellons disease?
Avatar universal
yes, but Morgellons seams to be another category. i don't think that is what i have . i dont have any lesions, nor do i have fibers. although, i do have to say, that when i am in the car, on a bright sunny day, when the sun rays let you see all the dust in the air, i do see fiber like objects floating in the air. i don't know if that is common with other people "normal" people. but it makes me wonder if those 'fibers' have something to do with this. they do look a little 'wierd', they kinda look like morgellons fiber pictures, small fibers, curled up. i dont know.

Just wondering if you found a solution to this.  I have recently had white matter constantly leaving my hair and I am desperate to find a solution.  It appears we are having the same prolem.

Like micha64us said, I think we are the host for something; but I don't know what.  It could be tiny (microscopic) bugs, mycobacteria, protozoans, something else although I can't think of what.  I am trying to find someone who takes it seriously.  It seems that anything I use on my hair or skin, especially (for me) Comet bathroom spray which is largely citric acid with a surfactant helps.  I have 1-2 days out of a typical week where I am nearly symptom free. It was worse half a year ago, but still very much present.  I know that it is contagious, because some people at my office are having their own symptoms of having the floaters when they move/speak, or excessive "dust" on their stuff, and the "lint" balls.  

There might be some psychological component and I do know some aggressive people in meetings fluff or toss their hair or cough pointedly, but I think in general it is just that people are irritated by this stuff and it is a physical reaction.

I do not know why doctors don't take it seriously!  It is not just a laundry problem.

I suffer from a extreme problem and the doctors told me it was bacteria overgrowth in the belly. Check my posts and get back to me.
