you can feel the knots all over my body.
Yea mine too, and it has been bad lately, I have these painfully soft tissue knots everywhere.
Dr. Garth Nicolson, President of The Institute for Molecular Medicine, and Joyce Riley of The American Gulf War Veterans Assoc., among others, feel that Gulf War Illness is spreading to the general public and is being divided up into separate disease labels such as those listed above. Many patients with these disease labels are sending their blood to be tested at The Institute for Molecular Medicine and The Bowen Lab, are finding they are infected with mycoplasma and or the Lyme Disease organism. The Bowen Lab specializes in testing for the cyst form of the Lyme organism and for Erlichiosis and Babesiosis (other tickborne infections). Mycoplasma and the cyst form of the Lyme spirochete are being found in much of the chronic illness population. Mycoplasma Fermentens Incognitus, one of the most common strains being isolated, is patented by the U.S. Army and Army pathologist Dr. Lo. Lo,Shyh-Ching-Pathogenic mycoplasma - U.S. Patent 5,242,820 issued Sept.7 1993
"Now if Saddam Hussein had wanted to kill our soldiers, he would have just outright killed them with mustard or cyanide, right?" reasons Captain Joyce Riley. That wasn't the plan," she continues. "The plan was to give a country a disease that they would bring back to their families. What better way to give a country a disease than to give it to the military, who move all over the country.?"

Thanks, Iwinder. Since I no longer have to work (thankfully I have a husband now who is happy to support me, both physically and emotionally), I have plenty of time, not only for research, but also for things like spacing out on TV.
Notice when they have drug commercials for Lyrica, they say that "fibromyalgia is thought to be the result of over-active nerves". Say WHAT?? To simplify it in such a matter always ticks me off. Naturally, they never say what could cause the nerves to register pain.
The mycoplasma invades cells. It can be slowly growing in a person, and usually a stressful event will trigger it, since stress creates corticosteroids, which tells the immune system to "stand down". It invades cells, since it has no cell wall of its own. This is why it is so hard to find in lab tests, it has to be done via DNA sequencing.
It steals the energy created by the mitochondria in each cell. When it's done stealing, it breaks out of the cell, destroying it. The cellular debris floods the blood stream, causing a lot of pain all over the place.. Imagine millions of cells being broken apart as the mycoplasma splits and goes to find another cell. There are only short periods of time when the mycoplasma is not inside a cell, so it's pretty hard to fight.
Thanks for your kind words. And, unfortuately, a healthy person today can become an infected one tomorrow, because it is now everywhere. Pray that you are one of the fortunate people who will never become a victim!
