It is alarming that it has taken this amount of time to encourage the CDC to take note of this. A Registered Nurse of some 40 years experience I am also experiencing this condition. With no confirmation from the medical and scientific community that something is amiss here, we who suffer have endured a total rebuff from the medical community. What has happened to scientific curiosity? In this day and age, this is a very sad state of affairs. Let's hope the CDC does do a thorough investigation and as well reveal it in honesty. If this does scoot again under the radar, thousands (and more each day) will seriously wonder what's up.

Thi is not a natural disease, this monster is born out a government lab just as HIV did late 70's , the only problem is this one is even naftier than AIDS , this virus sindrome or whatever hell is it is the baby of two emerging sciences in bioweapons development: nanotechnologic and genetic engineering, I would not be surprised is a regular bacterial host in humas like E. Coli or similar was altered to mutated under some specific "triggers" and then start to produce this nasty celullose fibers inside your body, like your brain skin, ear, face you name, this is diabolical stuff, God save us!

Very sad that so many people have been affected by this and chosen to not treat it.

I dont want to alarm you people as you are suffering enough , but i believe you should make an apointment to undergoe Regressional Hypnosis . I think that you are some of the many Alien abductee's that have been experimented on . Hypnosis may finally give you the answers your looking for . The rock or crystal like things coming from your noses are in fact nasal implants used for mind control and tracking .(causeing brain fog) The bugs and lesions on your skin may or may not have been deliberately applied . Unclean medical instruments may be the cause , unleashing germs not from our world . I also believe that HIV is not from this planet , and im hopeing that our visitors from space are not trying to take our planet as prize . As for the lesions i suggest you try fresh Aloe vera juice as i know for fact it stops the lesions made by the White tail spider , Wolf spider and others . I feel we will soon know if im right but i pray for once that im wrong .

My daughter and I have what I believe to be morgellons. The CDC totally blew me off as well. Try the lotion Am-Lactin, you can buy it at Walgreens. It burns like heck but it helps heal the lesions. I moved from seattle to a very small town, so I can't find any doctors either. Very high doses of vit C and salt pills seem to help though. I have been in contact with Dr Wymore's assistants at OHSU and you can bet that more people than we ever know are working on this, be patient.

Solarcaine (sold at any drug store/grocery store) works miracles. My advice; spray the solarcaine (an antiseptic and pain relief spray) all over the body, wait approx. 30 minutes and then take a hot bath. Within an hour, both physiological and psychological symptoms will ease.
This method is convenient, quick... and most of all, works better than anything out there.
But one more thing.... don't buy out all the solarcaine... I need it too!!:-)

Does anyone know If there has been any studies/findings of the effect of Morgellons has on the brain? It's quite alarming, even before the lesions and the scratching I knew there wasn't something right upstairs. I'd never felt that spacey before and at times I'd hyperfocus on things when my head wasn't foggy. My husband thought I was taking some kind of methanphetamine or something. And when the lesions started that did'nt help. Ha, ha!!! Now he believes me though, saw the fibers for himself. But it took him about a year to even look at them. What a bonehead!

As with Aids, we will probably have to wait on the French or another foreign government to say honestly what is causing this affliction. Do you really think the CDC will admit that this is happening? The impact of this is exponentially more than bird flu and the stock market might get queasy. So, there's your answer - if it negatively affects the markets, Wall Street and the the powers in the White House, no one at the CDC will dare say a word.

This whole thing has been a nightmare, it's scary to speculate the outcome.

If you would all listen a moment. This disease was spread from germany from people that told me about 9-11 before this happened. This was all covered up. There is a cure a antibiotic that will really help I found this in palma de mallorca but the antibiotic was taken out of my baggs in the palma de mallorca airport. I can name names, dates and the people involved. I have a man that will come foward if he can get a split on the rewards for justice but he is now scared as both his parents came down with cancer. Contact your congressmen, the fbi and help put a stop to this scam for people to make money. I really tell the truth and try to help all of us americans. There is much more and the truth deserves to be told.

I do indeed believe the rabbit hole goes deep, very deep, if you really want to help those suffering your voice might not fall on deaf ears on the official Morgellons website. There are people there that can help you tell your story if you have information that is usefull. As for me, I and my family are very sick, and as many people are feeling right now, we just want to get better. And if there is truth to be told, then tell it.

There are many theories, but only one truth. If you really have truth to share please do not waste time being coy. We want to hear it. There are now more than 8,000 HOUSEHOLDS (with several people in a family possible) registered with the Morgellons.org website. That does not account for the other thousands that already have this and don't know it yet. I have read posts from people that are obviously suffering from this that are writing in saying "what is this, have any of you gone to the doc yet, why not try some itch cream", etc. These people have no clue what they are up against. The doctors DO NOT help,(yes, I believe their oath to "DO NO HARM" is in question here and someone should aprise them of the facts that MANY have died of this, some committing suicide and one, but probably more has been deemed upon autopsy "death due to heart failure with fibers blocking the valves of the heart"). I know ones in their 90's who have chronic "pheumonia" (with the thick or watery clogging mucous) that have lesions and fibers on their face and fiber balls all over the waist of their slacks (navy slacks, white fiber balls) also, seen flying bugs coming from the scalp and in the hair of a very well kept elderly lady who also happens to have this on the front of her neck.(looks like exczema, but it is not) I also know a family that has this, I have made the step of informing the mom and guiding her to the morg website and she has white bugs falling out of her short hair (NOT dandruff, bugs) and her daughter was born with this and one day she threw up neon yellow (not green bile) matter from her stomach. This disease has as one of it's stages a fluke type organism that can be neon yellow. I have seen the pattern just under the skin of her daughter,(lace like and white/red splotches and circles and lines, sometimes very faint but you can see it if you are patient and in good light). My point is this, this is terrible, whatever this is. My thought is that the focus should be two things. Identifying it, and finding a cure. First I feel that us average people and some who feel the scientific curiosity bug and also have the know-how, can all ban together in some way to try all different things to identify this. Us average Jo's can hand over our ideas to the sci guys and let them see if what we have worked out is feasable to do the sci method on to come to a conclusion as to the identification and a method to reach it. Second, there are many boards that people write into telling of this and that that helps, some are reasonable, some are a waste of time and some could be deadly to be honest (window cleaner on your skin for instance) but it would be good to start a database of things that work (that are not also unreasonable or hurtful)the salt and vitamin C for example. I do not feel there is a cure in this manner, we will leave that up to the drug companies,(I think I am supposed to say that here) but things that could afford some relief in the meantime. Personally, I have found some real realief with nano-particulate silver solution. Just a teaspoon a day. Doesn't hurt, and I find it does help me. Thing is, itch cream is not going to cut it. Won't help a bit, not for long. The lesions themselves are so hiddeous, leaving deep scooped out holes in our flesh, oh they "heal" over, with a make believe scab (is actually an organism) then when that falls off (when the organism molts) underneath is a very thin membrane that, when barely touched, opens up the wound and bleeds profusely and you are immediately left with the huge scooped out bloody hole in your arm, face, leg, chest, etc. Please let's help each other. Is there anyone that can start a database? Are there any artists that can draw what they see if they don't have macro cameras?

Please let us know what you know!!! It sounds like it is important.

I saw some similar posts you made on morgellonsite Please go to the proboards on cliff mickelsons group. They have lots of people there who take this seriously and have made efforts on persuing this matter as far as it will go. For all those who suffer from Morgellons please stay positive and educate yourself. Do as much research on this as possible tell as many people as you can about what you are seeing and feeling there. If anything Morgellons has opened my eyes to everyone around me and enlightend my sense of being. I know that anykind of medical relief for this is soooo far off, we need the internet to communicate with eachother and create a united front. We all need to work together on this one and waste no time on things that dont matter so much

WOW!!!!!!!!!! a real brain on our side!!! 100% manufactured disease which either leaked before due experiments & tests were completed causing governments a huge disaster to which they had not yet evolved any kind of cure OR they themselves didn't create it yet still do indeed know it's real but every single person employed in this disease field is simply just way way way tooo DUMB to be able to identify it's components let alone come up with a cure so of course it's by far much much better for them to brush it off and conclude the world is now full of highly intelligent mostly successful normal people who have congregated & chosen to go mad with the common insane and HIGHLY NOTICABLE NON REPLICABLE symptoms shared amongst all of them because they think that it might be a really fun thing to do RIGHT? easier then panicking the world of this crisis, and they dare to try and say we are all crazy some nerve all medical con artist co conspirators have, they make me absolutly sick and you are all more evil then any terrorist could ever be - at least they are honest enough to state they are against us upfront unlike these two faced government bodies those med prof who were legitimate were murdered when onto something look it all up for yourself about suspicious convenient microbiologists deaths unless progress is made by the sufferers themselves i gurantee you this will never be admitted - never it's no coincidence they won't examine us they then would have to try & explain the specimens that they know they will find ALSO don't buy off these people with cures or who want your money they are taking advantage of people who they believe to be crazy enough to belive anything be as sceptical towards them as they r us last thing they spead in the form of bird mites especially b causcious late spring early sum
