I live in Arizona and have had valley fever. Its symptoms, I had low grade fever and felt like an elephant sat on my chest. Some brown patches on my
It eventually went away but took a few weeks.
This last month I was down all month, Swollen glands so bad almost blocked my airway, fever, joint pain inflammation, kidney pain and inflammation,
High fevers to low body temps, High neutrophils, Low RBC count, cut in half my normal.Bloody diarrhea, dry cough, hard time breathing. .. Tested neg
for flu and strep. No idea what it was. Glad I am still here.
Had to have an ambulance get me one night it was so bad.
My local doctor here in the small town in AZ said there is a very bad respiratory illness going around , that is really really bad and he had to put
some patients in the hospital. He also said flu cases are now on the rise here. He tests everyone with symptoms for flu and strep.
Interesting this is coming up again: I am in South Texas.
My ENT told me YEARS ago to "go away" when they plow the fields surrounding me "under" or work the soil in any way...I have "asthma" but do not
take meds for it anymore (they are poison) and try to control with diet and exercise.
Saw him a few weeks ago just for a yearly checkup.
He's maybe in his early 70's an has seen the cases of what he calls "Farmer's Lung" RAPIDLY increasing recently for a couple of reasons:
The "older" farmers would never work the soil in a drought (have been n one for years now) or in 100+ degree temps because of the "fugus/spores"
that lay dormant in the soil. However, the "younger generation" thinks nothing of doing this and poos poos the warnings.
When they DO? All kinds of bad bacteria is released.
The cattle get what's called "black leg" every few years even with inocluations...it's like a barameter of the atmosphere in some way.
They are spraying CONSTANTLY via air for everything to do with the crops and worst of all the cotton: huge subsidies for cotton and the government
regulates the "wevil eradication" with a lot of job justification (guys in trucks sitting by the fields chatting for hours) and again subsidies to
spray...huge racket IMHO.
What they sparay for cotton is bad juju...awful stuff...causes neurological damage.
I have written letters locally and waged a mini-war to no avail: have a letter stating that "80 percent of the county makes a living and raises their
family due to agriculture so it's my problem if I'm concerned or affected by it"...almost verbatim what I was told.
It's not on the "national news" but there have been 40 DEATHS from the "flu" in Houston recently and Austin is racking up the nukmbers too...I
know of three here diagnosed with H1N1 last week locally.
Something is happening...I am rural...I "feel it" and the changes in the air. It's different than it was a few years ago, things "smell odd."
