Great resources for finding out more info on these and related subject matter, keep up the good work!

It is essential that we all are aware of the things that may be known, even awareness of known unknowns help increase the odds on ones favor.

I would attribute that to the tornado.

Good find op.

Well getting a fungal infection would be something you would kind of expect to see after cleaning water soaked debris and such after such a natural disaster. However it seems a rather geographically isolated event in that it is a rare fungus in the first place, is soil based not like say regular house mold. Also no other tornadoes floods or hurricanes at least are reported to have the effects of rare killer fungus attributed to them.

Of course you may be right however is it causation or correlation. All depends on your starting point.

Lets break down the links to see what exactly what these threats are.

Rare e. coli strain in Mid Europe.

New Staph infection in Western Europe.

An odd gene "NDM-1" that can inhabit at least 20 different forms of bacteria including pneumonia e coli cholera etc originating in India now in the now in Canada in a person that has never been to India. Also it is now in Afghanistan. Scroll down this article is a pretty interesting read that has to deal with how these things are spreading and to why they are spreading were they are and its the military to blame not your average traveler.

The link i provided would account for rare fungal infections.

Lets say for sake of argument this is some type of correlated event that all these are happening in a short time frame by some unknown power. At the moment they either can not find an effective delivery or dispersal system to do whatever it is one would like to do with killing people.

If they are looking for an effective way to kill people lets say, you would expect maybe a viral or parasitic outbreak to occur in the near future. One may be occurring right now that MAYBE that is either going under or non reported.

Pure journalistic hype could be the reason as well beats me.

I highly doubt the insignificance of my personal life has anything to do with these illnesses, but I feel compelled to share.

I very rarely get sick. (Well, I get sick very often when it comes to my stomach. I have an incredibly weak stomach, so it doesn't take much to incapacitate me - even a night of moderate drinking can leave me in the hospital the next morning. But I never get any type of viral or bacterial infections. Honestly the last time I was sick with a viral infection was high school... over 7 years ago.)

Anyway, my point is that I've been sick in bed for the past week and a half.
Symptoms: extremely swollen lymph nodes - but no sore throat, no cough, no congestion.
A high fever.
Extreme headache.
Joint/bone pain.

Obviously I've been to the doctor. They were pretty sure it was lyme disease (my dogs sleep on my bed at night, so lyme disease wasn't too far fetched of a possibility). But they also tested for a myriad of other possibilities and everything came back negative.
So, they have no idea what I have. They're just calling it a viral infection.

So far, after 4 days of taking friggin' antibiotics the size of horse pills (and another 6 days to go), I'm staring to get a little bit better. But I'm very curious as to exactly what kind of virus knocked me on my ass.

And it might sound silly, but the thought that my illness has something to do with all the other ridiculous sickness' out there has crossed my mind once or twice.

Let's not forget Measles in Quebec, Canada source CBC

There have been 208 cases of measles reported in Quebec since May 1 and a total of 254 since the beginning of the year. The outbreaks have occurred in several regions of the province. Cases in April indicated the outbreak of the virus was sparked by people who had returned from vacations in France, but subsequent cases appear to be of local origin.

Mmm, I find this odd as people have not just started traveling just this year.

Posted 5 hrs ago: press/article/ALeqM5ga2Y1JWU0qpFMrx9hcGv-S36V4uQ?docId=7116823

Quebec's outbreak, which began early this year and this week jumped to 330 confirmed and suspected cases
They say it may get worse as not as many people are getting vaccinated and / or are not getting all the shots.

E.Coli seems to be the MSM pet virus as of late, but I was just reading that salmonella cases are on the rise in Minnesota ( )

TB in Ireland ( )

C.dificile in Cape Breton Canada ( )

There does seem to be a ton of these 'outbreaks' in the news, and not just for humans. Horses, shrimp and other animals are being affected by diseases as well.

It's people taking antibiotics for every sniffle that causes these superbugs in the first place. Make sure you finish them.

Augmentin? Antibiotics are for infections. Taking them for viral infections would just decrease the efficacy of that antibiotic in your body.

Are we talking about the same thing here ?

It is publicly unknown how many of over 1700 treated May 22 Missouri tornado victims now suffer the wrath of a rapid, aggressive fungal infection in their wounds that is causing nerve damage, blindness, brain and lung blood clots and death, but Thursday, health officials issued a staff warning about the killer fungus now that at least nine people have been treated and three or four died due to it. Dr. Uwe Schmidt, an infectious disease specialist at Freeman Health System, said three or four people with the infection called zygomycosis have died reported the News Leader. Although medical staff knew that the killer fungus was causing serious complications the week after the tornadoes, the situation was kept under cover until Thursday. Still, a close approximation of the number of people infected with the deadly fungus is not being revealed. In the deadly tornado aftermath that destroyed Joplin, Missouri's St. John Hospital, Freeman Hospital doctors treated over 1,700 patients while St. John Hospital doctors treated patients in emergency makeshift facilities at Memorial Hall and McAuley Catholic High School.

The Zygomycosis fungus invades underlying tissue - the underlying blood vessels, and cuts off circulation to the skin causing the area to become black according to Dr. Schmidt who says it is "very invasive." Head wounds are the most lethal, while the fungus remaining in an arm or leg have required amputation to save the patient according to Tornado victims wounded near the head have died. As soon as brain tissue started dying, it was too late to save the patient" according to the Leader. The real number of victims with the deadly fungus is unknown as the "report of numbers of cases of reportable diseases are handled by public health departments," according to Cora Scott, a spokeswoman for St. John's Hospital in Springfield, who has been referring all questions to Springfield-Greene County Health Department. Only a week after the tornado, three fungal infection patients were admitted to Freeman Hospital and doctors tried controlling the fungus with intravenous medicine and by removing killed tissues. Dr. Schmidt said that he and other medical staff could see mold in the wounds. "It rapidly spread. The tissue dies off and becomes black. It doesn't have any circulation. It has to be removed."

There was a thread on this back in 2008

Deadly Airbourne fungus in Oregon....

An AIrbourne Deadly fungus that causes necrotic tissue and death....hhmm there's your Zombie Apocolypse...

Taking an antibiotic for a virus isn't going to do anything except expose your body to an antibiotic when it doesn't need one.

Which is the biggest problem I have with doctors. The last time I took my kids to the doctor (which was necessary for an excuse for school--another peeve of mine) they prescribed antibiotics. I asked why she would prescribe that for a cold and she kind of blinked at me silently and then said it was preventative, to curb any bacterial infections they may have. May? I didn't fill the prescription and my kids were fine.

I never get sick either. Just a mere cold once a year. But three weeks ago I came down with fever, aches that go to the bone, headache, and weakness. My temp would go from normal to 102, then down, and back up. The doctor wanted to put me on a medication called zpak. I started to take this and felt far worse than I did. This odd illness went on for 5 more days. I took myself to the health food store, got a bottle of silver, oil of oregano, and some elderberry. I started my own regiment and I swear that within 24 hours the fever broke and I began to feel human again. I have no idea what I had and my blood work showed to be fine.

The strange thing about this is, I never catch anything, and I travel very often. It's very strange for me I think to catch a flu in May.

Thank you for that, I saved to bookmarks as it is vital for so many people here in the midwest. I may start a new thread on this for all of the members in the midwest who have been exposed to the high winds that fateful day.

Remember how paperwork was found over 100 miles away? Those mold spores need to be watched out for in patients and individuals east of Joplin.

Thanks this is big.

I dont think it's fair to blame the tornado. If a tornado destroyed the CDC office and released smallpox would the resulting deaths be chalked to the tornado, or the disease?

Causation and correlation aren't the same, hopefully more people will realize that.

There is so much information to discover about this, I think it is actually more common than the system would have you think it is. It could be very if not completely connected to Valley Fever.

To all of those who mentioned the lunacy of being prescribed antibiotics for a viral infection: I completely agree.

But as a patient... I feel like I should obey the doctor I'm seeing. (I've been through many doctors in my life, a few of which were so incapable that I fought to get their medical licenses revoked, and I won. So now that I've finally found a doctor who is pretty good and usually on the ball, I'm gonna stick with my prescription.)

As an update... apparently the viral infection morphed into extreme tonsillitis. And I've been sent to a specialist and put on some kind of intense antibiotic where I'm not allowed to exercise or else I'll be at risk for tendonitis.

I mean, what on earth is going on so that all these illnesses attack me at the same time? It could just be something weird going on with me personally, but considering the recent world events... who knows whether or not this is related.

All I've got to say is that I had damn well better improve before I start classes on the 27th. xP
