I meant to say earlier, when I said I asked the mod to close the tread, I meant to lock it, not to remove it!

No need to appologize - No I'm not - just a beer or two on a sunny day

The only things that come to mind for me are ailments already covered by other posters. The only thing I'm not entirely sure has been mentioned is your liver. I assume they would given the multiple diagnostics you say you've had done, but just in case: did they check your liver enzymes, bilirubin, etc.?

I sincerely hope you find answers and, more importantly, relief. Peace.

Hi Heff, thank you for your reply - I do not own and have never owned a cat, though I do own a dog and likely have been exposed to by products of rodents, racoons, chipmunks - I live in an old house that did until about a year ago have a significant mouse infestation

Old house is a HUGE red flag! Especially if there have been rodents. Mold, lead based paint, wood rot, fiberglass... all potential environmental allergens or toxins just from the house. And rodent droppings open up an entire other can of worms.

If there is a room that you spend most time in, I'd suggest buying a cheap air filtration system and keeping it close by... if your symptoms alleviate then you will know it is environmental.

As an update:

I have had the first positive result from all of the tests I have had come back today. I had my belly button swabbed last week on a hunch by a doctor that bacteria could be living in there and possibly could be some sort of abscess that may have/ or could in the future turn into some sort of sepsis...

I tested positive for MSRA, which is "Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus" a variety of the Staph bacteria which is resistant to the standard antibiotics, but I have been prescribed mupirocin calcium to take 4 times daily on an empty stomach. Keeping my fingers crossed that this could be the root of my problems!

I just had an infected wisdom tooth that was causing my lymph node to swell, i had a low grade fever. Do you still have your wisdom teeth?

One of the odd things aobut migraines is that people commonly refer to "auras" that accompany their migraine. That's just the most widely experienced aura, involving vision. You can have auras in various different senses, and yes, olfactory auras DO occur!


It sounds like you are experiencing both visual and olfactory auras. I personally have "optical Migraines", in which I get very strong, disorienting vision auras which can best be described as random shapes in my field of vision which sparkle like a CD in the sun. Fortunately, I don't have any accompanying pain.

See a Migraine specialist my man! (not to say your MRSA isn't a factor, irregardless get that patched up as well!)

How are you doing, and have the antibiotics helped?

I sincerely hope all is well for you, a kindred spirit, and good heart & soul..

Please keep us updated...I missed a lot due real life issues that you helped me get through over the past few weeks.

You're in my thoughts and prayers -- a remedy will present itself!

The antibiotics seemed to have had a pretty profound effect.. I am still feeling a little under the weather each night but nowhere near what it was like before! The strain of Staph I had was MSRA, which has resistances to common antibiotics so this is what I believe had the other antibiotics present little help.

My doctor has asked me to give it a month and see if the condition resolves itself now that the antibiotics course has been finished - if there are still symptoms after that he has agreed to prescribe me a 2 week course of the same antibiotics once again.. If that doesn't clear the symptoms up completely then the next consideration would be IV antibiotics and possibly some blood transfusion of some sort of antibody. (Hoping that the symptoms should clear up on their own now at this point, fingers crossed!)

Thank you for your concern and kind words

Glad to hear the follow up! Thanks! I hope you are still feeling better and continue to do so. Mystery illnesses can be very distressing.

Sorry to reply so late; I didn't see your reply! I am sure that an electromagnetic pulse will work by shorting the circuit in the fibers but I do not know the details. I know that several people have developed specific EMP devices which work and can be found online. I have heard that it has been around since the 17th century but I need to confirm that! Also it only affects a certain blood type so maybe those people have special abilities! Hope this helps!
