Review by Moirraine C.2 years ago
Please be wary of doctors who will not take blood pressure or do ANY kind of exam or test and THEN will not send one to a proper specialist after promising to do so. The one I was sent to was a nightmare beyond imagining.
The pictures with this review are only half of the story, the rest is massive pain, losing a lot of my hearing, some of my eyesight and experiencing several seizures, all of which should have been treated weeks ago.
I now can not eat at all as I can barely open my mouth.
I never asked for pain medication, I am not faking a malady. This is a condition that I've seen in many between Washington State, Oregon and Nevada. One young man I witnessed here in Las Vegas is fully encrusted and not in his right mind, yet not one person has 'noticed' his state and taken him off the street if for no other reason than he is very contagious.
Tunneling mites can destroy one's life, savings and put one on a road to pain most will never comprehend if left without proper and timely treatment.
I have spent over $5,000 in ---over the counter medications--- to try to slow this infestation down, but I am losing the battle, my eyes being the most in danger, my ears are solid rocks due to the numbers of mites sucking blood from my ears all the way to my eardrum. My mouth is growing solid and soon I will not be able to even open it to drink water.
Chronic and dangerous dehydration is constant and I can't figure out why any doctor would leave any person in this condition to grow worse by the hour. My blood pressure spikes over and over and over, going to numbers that put most in a hospital.
SOME mites that infest humans CAN be seen. I have some that can and many that can't by the naked eye or even a 20x mirror. ALL mites CAN destroy one's health, especially if one has a very broken immune system or none at all. I have no working immune system after 30+ years of doctor directed antibiotics and no real testing for the infections that were treated with many that now carry 'black box' warnings. I have had 7 pneumonias out of 10 years. Anyone with a broken immune system can't fight what most of us did/do/can.
If I had been in Canada or Australia and presented with mites of this severity, I'd be treated and not losing my hearing and eyesight. As it is, many of our doctors don't understand that a broken immune system, a moldy bedroom window and mites are a recipe for pain and suffering the likes I pray no one else ever knows.
---I am housebound.--- I didn't get this from another human being.
I haven't 'touched' another human being in over five years. I don't live in 'crowded conditions'. Mites love moisture, mold being the perfect way for them to move and eat at the same time while seeking out blood and hormones, both of which they live on, from humans OR animals. I was a perfect target for mites to infest and infect, and I hope I can find help in time to stop the hearing loss and save my eyesight.
Addendum 1: I have sent over half a dozen or more messages in two plus weeks in Yelp since I can't move my mouth much at all. It's been --weeks-- since Dr. Owen promised to find me a specialist.
He also knows that ERs are not equipped or able to help anyone who has mites, they just don't want to know what is there and will not even give an IV here in Las Vegas when a person presents with severe dehydration.
What I need now is to be admitted into a hospital, nothing short of that will do much good now that my head, neck, face, nose, ears and eyes and mouth are ---fully engulfed--- and becoming solid or are solid from the sheer numbers of mites sucking me dry.
New 'queen holes' and huge tunneling are coming up in hours where they used to take a few days. I need help now or I am going to lose my eyesight, hearing and more.
My vision is blurred, I can't see farther than 18-20 inches at all and hearing is a muffled sound,. My mouth is being attacked as much as my eyes. My neck is one solid mass of mites and sucked dry skin.
I just took a short, coolish shower and my mouth broke around all the tunneling around my mouth and nose, this is more than painful, this is
into dangerous when skin breaks apart and leaves one open to infection. ...And no ER will help HERE.
