Different mold species can have varying health effects, but it is important to remember that any excessive mold growth needs to be taken care of, regardless of the species. Any excessive mold growth can lead to increased allergies, toxicity, and house/building structural problems.

Aspergillus Versicolor. The most common species of Aspergillus. Among skin problems and hair loss, this fungus has been linked to severe abdominal pain, acid reflux, and vomiting.

This group of molds can thrive on water damaged, cellulose-rich material in buildings such as sheet rock, paper, ceiling tiles, insulation backing, wallpaper, etc. In the majority of cases where Stachybotrys is found indoors, water damage has gone unnoticed or ignored since it requires extended periods of time with increased levels of moisture for growth to occur. Stachybotrys is usually black and slimy in appearance. Events of water intrusion that are addressed quickly tends to support the growth of more xerophilic fungi such as Penicillium and Aspergillus.

Permanent problems sometimes associated with fungal exposure after treatment:

Note: Many of these symptoms could also be the onset of other illnesses, as well, and only a skilled physician is diagnosed to give you a full and qualified diagnosis. Additionally, it is important to know that much of these symptoms will deplete after vacating the building. Diet, nutrition, and medical assistance are extremely important.

Flu vs Food Poisoning

Flu and food poisoning both have common symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. The flu is an illness caused by RNA viruses which infect your respiratory system. There are variants of these flu viruses which cause gastrointestinal disturbances mentioned above. The common term ‘stomach flu’ for this condition is actually a misnomer. The condition is called viral gastroenteritis.

The common food poisoning is usually less sever but in some cases fatal. Both have the same symptoms which make them difficult to diagnose even for physicians.


The true flu viruses affect the respiratory system and cause symptoms similar to that of common cold. The symptoms usually pertain to the respiratory system and occasionally become fatal. The stomach flu is caused by viruses different from the influenza viruses and result in gastrointestinal disturbances.

Viral gastroenteritis occurs due to the exposure to the virus due to poor sanitation or by ingesting contaminated food. It can be considered as a kind of food poisoning since in majority of the cases, the virus gains entry into the system through food. The treatment is same for both the conditions. Keep hydrated and take plenty of rest.

Food Poisoning

Food poisoning is less severe in most cases but can become fatal in exceptions. The symptoms usually include stomach pain, nausea, abdominal cramps, diarrhoea and vomiting. The symptoms usually have a sudden outburst after the ingestion of food. In most cases it affects all or most of the people who have consumed the contaminated food and the symptoms appear in a short time.

The name "Cat flu" is misleading because even though cats suffer from a similar disease, the disease is not contracted from cats. The symptoms in dogs are due to intestinal involvement and very unlike flu symptoms. Dry, windy weather sees more cases which occur mostly in puppies, but previously unexposed, unvaccinated adult dogs are also at risk. Even with the best treatment available some animals still don't survive, so vaccination is of paramount importance in the prevention of this terrible disease.

This serious disease is caused by one of the smallest viruses known to man called Canine Parvovirus (CPV).(Parvo is the Latin for small). As many as 300 000 virus particles will fit into a millimeter!

Albeit so small the virus is extremely tough and will survive most disinfectants. It may stay alive in the environment for as long as two years if conditions are favourable. In 1978 when the first cases of Parvovirus in dogs were seen, the virus spread all over the world in a matter of months, often without the involvement of dogs in the transmission.

Massive numbers of virus occur in the stool of a sick dog. One gram of faeces may contain enough virus to infect 10 million susceptible dogs!

The virus need certain enzymes to grow. These enzymes are found in rapid growing cells like the ones lining the intestinal tract. These cells grow quickly enough so that the intestinal lining is renewed every two to three days. If the virus grow inside these cells they break up leaving large areas of damaged lining that lead to severe loss of body fluids. The normal intestinal flora which under ordinary circumstances are pretty harmless, can now invade the body through the damaged areas.

  • Often a high fever
  • Listlessness
  • No appetite
  • Continuous vomiting or foaming at the mouth
  • Very smelly diarrhoea that frequently becomes blood-tinged
  • White or bluish gums
  • Abdominal pain
  • Dehydration � animals appear to have lost weight overnight

The symptoms usually appear very suddenly and susceptible pups may die within a few hours. Pups with large numbers of antibodies wil show much lighter symptoms. In rare instances animals may develop infection of the heart muscles with fatal results.

A bitch with good immunity against parvo will transfer these antibodies to her pups in the uterus. They will then be protected to a large degree for a period of six to twelve weeks. Exposure to the virus, whether naturally or through vaccination wil enhance this immunity. Healthy puppies, like the one on the left should thus be vaccinated at six weeks of age, again four weeks later and preferably a third time another four weeks later. It is very unlikely that a pup that has had three properly administered vaccinations will contract the disease. It is however important to stress that puppies must be healthy and free from worms before they can be vaccinated.

Because Parvovirus is one of the most frustrating diseases a vet has to put up with, vaccination remains the only efficient way of saving the puppy owner a lot of tears and regret.

At present there are no affordable injectable drugs that kill viruses in the body, thus no specific treatment exists once the virus is inside the body. Treatment is aimed at curbing secondary bacteria, stopping vomiting and replenishing body fluids.

  • Antibiotics
  • Anti-emetics
  • Intravenous fluid administration
  • Inteflora or similar probiotics to replenish gut flora (beneficial bacteria in the intestines)
  • Activated charcoal to bind toxins in the gut
  • Oral electrolytes if animals are still drinking and not vomiting
  • Small quantities of bland food eg. rice and cooked chicken
  • Blood transfusion in very severe cases

Fibromyalgia means widespread pain in the muscles, but this syndrome causes many other symptoms. 1 Lab tests seldom validate your condition and the results often make you feel like a hypochondriac. Pressing on tender points can diagnose fibromyalgia, but the exam still does not explain all of your symptoms. 2

People with fibromyalgia often describe their symptoms as a flu-like infection that doesn’t go away. It leaves you exhausted and unable to think or find the right words (symptoms of fibro fog). 3 With fibromyalgia, you have trouble sleeping and wake up stiff and achy. 4 Your symptoms can be debilitating and you probably feel as though you have to push yourself to get anything done. 5,6

  • Pain all over
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Brain fog
  • Morning stiffness
  • Muscle knots, cramping, weakness
  • Digestive disorders
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Balance problems
  • Itchy/burning skin
  • Affects 3 to 5 percent of the general population 7
  • Occurs in people of all ages, even children
  • Men develop fibromyalgia too, although more women are diagnosed with it
  • Symptoms are chronic but may fluctuate throughout the day
  • Roughly one-quarter of people with fibromyalgia are work-disabled 4
  • Three drugs are FDA-approved for fibromyalgia treatment

Mycoplasma may be the only infection in a body or can be a co-infection of Lyme. There are various species of mycoplasmas. Approximately 60% of Lyme infected people also have mycoplasmal infections. The most common are Mycoplasma fermentans, Mycoplasma hominis, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, M. genitalium, M. penetrans,and some other species. In some cases multiple mycoplasmal infections are present in Lyme Disease, thereby complicating the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme Disease because the symptoms are similar.

Mycoplasma infections can independently cause many of the signs and symptoms found in Lyme Disease, and they may exacerbate the clinical signs and symptoms and also complicate treatment of the Mycoplasma condition. Some people cycle in with Borrelia and various mycoplasmas in their blood cells.

After him telling me about aspartame I quit in 2 days, from several a day to one a day, for the next 2 days, and then none. Thanks to this site I found out what my next few days was from – ASPARTAME WITHDRAWAL- I had bad headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, high blood pressure, grumpy from feeling like I had a flu symptom. Fortunately I only had the bad headaches for a few days, and then yesterday, I was waking up and noticed that I didn’t have the immense pain in my finger joints. I was amazed, but not sure if it was true or not. As I got up and started moving my fingers, I noticed the extreme joint movement pain was not happening. I still have a stiffness in my hands, and finger joints, but also, I only took about 4 Tylenol yesterday,, I was taking 4 Tylenol- about 4-5 times a day. And that didn’t take care of it, I was ready to find some morphine. That BAD! My finger joints and elbows are still stiff and ache, but about 85% less than before. My wife quit too, she was only drinking about one a day, but feels better too. Also I am not as tired as I was, but one amazing thing is that I don’t crave the Diet Coke! I am working on finding other drinks and waiting to see if the swelling in my fingers goes down, and the stiffness goes away! Thank God for this site and Spell check. Fingers are really stiff and make a lot of type O”s.

God Bless and have a super day!

Leanne: (my improvements)

I had shooting pains in my head for probably the first month or two. It’s been 3 months since I stopped drinking diet soda. Within in the first month my brain fog really lifted and I had some computer issues at the time and it necessitated checking all my files to my backup. I was stunned to find where things were filed. I realized how much my thinking has improved since I got off aspartame.

My muscle pain was intensified for the first two months and it didn’t settle down much after that except I went into a gallbladder attack so I did some “Stone Free” for 10 days and then did a liver gallbladder flush and now some of that muscle pain has subsided as well as my liver and gallbladder are functioning better.

I’m finding that aspartame is so toxic that other modalities such as a liver gallbladder flush (and I’m sure I’ll do multiple flushes to really clean it out) and colon cleansing may be needed to really clean this out your system. During the flush the part of my head – only where my hair is, and especially in front where my hair had thinned, was like a spinkler system of sweat during the detox – must have kicked out a lot of aspartame.

I also read that thinning hair is one of many signs of liver/gallbladder overload. I believe in time all these things can be reversed back to good health. Our liver filters our blood, try running your A/C or the gas line in your car with a dirty filter and you won’t get very far. Clean the filter and your back in business. Apparently it’s a bigger task than I thought it was going to be.

I noticed that because I was juicing daily it really cut down my symptoms and stopped my cravings. It really surprised me how much easier it was to quit because it calmed my nerves. Figure out what substitutes help you. I drink seltzer water when I want bubbles, and I have a regular Coke once every or every other week, and that works for me.

Thanks for your website, and comment section. I’ve gotten a lot of good info here, and the encouragement to keep going.
I must admit that this is tougher than I thought it would be. After getting many of the symptoms of aspartame poisoning, I finally realized that it was the aspartame doing it to me.
I quit 21 days ago today, but I’m still getting the headaches and spaciness, and I’m getting discouraged. But the research I’ve done shows a variety of opinions as to how long it can take before the headaches go away, 2-4 wks, and even 2 months or more. I just hope it’s soon. It’s my own fault. My wife warned me about it a couple of years ago, but I was feeling fine then, so I didn’t listen. And I didn’t pay attention to all of the warnings for the last 25 years or so. I’ve been drinking Diet Pepsi since it came out with aspartame … and lots of it. I also used about 4-8 packets of equal a day for sweetening coffee, tea, and other things. I had no idea how addicted I was (am).
I’m become a poster boy, warning all of my friends and family about it … but, just like me, those who use it think it won’t happen to them. One niece who drank Diet Pepsi heavily throughout her pregnancy refuses to consider the possibility that it caused her son to be autistic. Now she has lupus, but of course, the aspartame is not the reason. serious denial.

Has anyone else been as addicted as me, and if so, how long did it take for the headaches to go away?

My headaches went away after 3-4 weeks. Cold chills and sweats after 4-5 weeks. Sounds like your almost there. Don’t give up.

6 days ago I became aware of the negative side affects of aspartame and could be a poster child for aspartame poisoning. I was drinking 3-6 Diet Dr. Peppers a day for at least 15 years. For the first two days, I limited myself to one per day and the third day, it just taste bad, so I haven’t had one for four days now.

Yesterday, I got the headache between my eyes that came and went a few times throughout the day and I was grumpy, so I googled aspartame withdrawals. (I haven’t quit caffeine so, its not that.) Anyway, I am hoping this mild headache is the only withdrawal symptom I have. How long does it take before these other possible symptoms to occur? If I were going to have other symptoms would they have already started?

Aside from the mild headache, I have actually felt better in terms of mental clarity.

Everyone reacts differently to the withdrawal. For example, my Mother had almost no side effects from the withdrawal other than the constant craving for Diet Coke.

The focus should be on management – adequate rehydration, bed rest and gradual introduction to solid food. Acute infectious gastroenteritis should settle in 2 to 3 days in a healthy person. Medical treatment should be sought if the symptoms are persisting for more than 5 days or if there is any sign of moderate to severe dehydration.

  • Antibiotics may be necessary for treating infections caused by Vibrio cholerae, Shigella spp and salmenollosis. For other bacterial causes of gastroenteritis, antibiotics should be avoided unless a person is immunocompromised or in a case of persistent diarrhea where a stool culture confirms the bacterial species.
  • Antidiarrheal agents are not advisable in acute infectious gastroenteritis. The use of OTC (over-the-counter) antidiarrheal agents often results in complications especially if used excessively in a case of bacterial gastroenteritis.
  • Probiotics containing Saccharomyces boulardii and Lactobacillus casei GG may assist with persistent diarrhea following a case of acute infectious gastroenteritis. Probiotic use during the infection is of limited value. Live culture yogurt or dairy is unsuitable as this may aggravate the diarrhea (secondary lactose intolerance). Speak to a pharmacist about probiotics in capsule form.

Refer to the article on Oral Rehydration Therapy and BRAT Diet for the management of acute infectious gastroenteritis.

The feature article in the November issue of Briefings on Infection Control looks at AHA’s mandatory flu shot policy that requires either influenza vaccination or wearing a mask in the presence of patients across healthcare settings during flu season for healthcare workers. Here is an excerpt of the article that examines considerations such as comfort, enforcement, and communication with patients for choosing to wear a flu mask as alternative to immunization.

Healthcare workers either need to get an influenza vac­cination or wear a mask when working with patients during flu season, according to a new American Hospital Association (AHA) policy.

That’s a necessary step to protect the safety of patients, says Nancy Foster, AHA’s vice president of quality and ­patient safety.

While a flu shot is preferable, wearing a mask is a way to minimize the transmission of droplets that can cause ­influenza, she says.

An uncomfortable option
But is mask-wearing practical?

“I won’t say it’s the most comfortable option. But the risk to patients is too great [not to require it],” Foster says.

Hospitals often start vaccinating workers with flu vaccine in September, and flu season can run as late as through April.

“You’re looking at months of wearing a mask,” says Libby Chinnes, RN, BSN, CIC, an independent infection control consultant with IC Solutions, LLC, based in Mt. Pleasant, SC.

The requirement to wear a mask may be an incentive for some healthcare workers to get a flu vaccination, Chinnes says. “If you wear a mask for very long, it gets hot and uncomfortable,” she says.

Enforcement a challenge
If hospitals are going to require masks for healthcare workers who decline the flu vaccine, they need to make that part of their policy, Chinnes says.

The hard part will be enforcement, she says, since workers may need to wear a mask for five or six months.

“Masking is a hassle for employees and can be problematic for hospitals to enforce,” says Deborah L. Wexler, MD, executive director of the ­Immunization Action Coalition in Saint Paul, MN.

Monitoring healthcare workers who must wear a mask because they haven’t had a flu shot is a challenge, agrees Peggy Prinz Luebbert, MS, MS(ASCP), CIC, CHSP, a consultant and owner of ­Healthcare ­Interventions in ­Omaha, NE, who works with healthcare ­organizations across the country.

Luebbert has worked with a couple of hospitals that have required masks and it does provide some motivation for workers to get a flu shot.

Healthcare workers are required to wear a mask as soon as they enter the facility, from October 1 to March 1, she says.

  • starkes Krankheitsgefühl
  • plötzlich auftretendes, hohes Fieber
  • Halsschmerzen
  • Husten
  • Schnupfen, laufende Nase

Darüber hinaus verursacht der Virus-Infekt oft folgende Symptome:

  • Schüttelfrost
  • starke Kopf-, Muskel-, Rücken- und Gliederschmerzen
  • Schmerzen hinter dem Brustbein
  • Heiserkeit
  • Luftnot
  • Übelkeit
  • Appetitlosigkeit
  • massive Erschöpfung

Zunächst ähneln die Symptome einer Grippe denen einer Erkältung. Große Unterschiede zeigen sich erst im Krankheitsverlauf und in Schwere der Erkrankung. Ein erster Indikator für eine echte Grippe ist der plötzliche und heftige Beginn, der sich keineswegs schleichend ankündigt. Mehrere Symptome treten gleichzeitig und intensiv auf, während Anzeichen einer Erkältung sich erst nach und nach entwickeln. Bei einer Influenza kommt es schnell zu einem typischen Symptom: das hohe Fieber, welches eine Temperatur von 39 bis 41 Grad Celsius erreichen kann und tagelang anhält. Der Puls geht schneller, es kommt zu Schweißausbrüchen, gesteigerter Atmung, glänzenden Augen, Schwindel, Wahrnehmungsstörungen und Verwirrtheit. Weiterhin kann das Fieber Krämpfe auslösen. Eine mögliche Therapie besteht, nach Rücksprache mit dem Arzt, in der Behandlung durch Medikamente, die das Fieber senken können. Weiterhin fördert das geschwächte Immunsystem von Grippepatienten, die Entwicklung von bakteriellen Infektionen. Es kann somit insbesondere bei älteren Menschen zu Komplikationen kommen. Entzündungen des Nervensystems und Lungenentzündungen sind mögliche Folgen.

Der Virus-Infekt ist schon während der Inkubationszeit, also dem Zeitraum zwischen Infektion und Ausbruch einer Erkrankung, ansteckend. Die Inkubationszeit beträgt bei einer Grippe ein paar Stunden bis drei Tage. Nach Ausbruch der Influenza besteht die Gefahr einer Ansteckung dann noch etwa drei bis fünf Tage. Kinder können das Virus sogar bis zu sieben Tage, nach Auftreten der ersten Symptome, weitergeben.

Wie sieht die Behandlung einer Grippe (Influenza) aus?

Die Therapie der Grippe hängt davon ab, ob die Erkrankung als mild oder schwer eingestuft wird und, ob eine zusätzliche Infektion mit Bakterien vorliegt. In vielen Fällen können Patienten lediglich durch eine symptomatische Behandlung versuchen, die Beschwerden der Krankheit zu lindern. Je nach Fall ist es bei einer Virusgrippe ratsam, nach Rücksprache mit dem behandelnden Arzt, spezielle Grippemittel oder Antibiotika einzusetzen.

Die Aktivität der akuten Atemwegserkrankungen durch das Virus ist in der 2. Kalenderwoche im Jahr 2018 deutschlandweit gesunken. In der laufenden Grippe-Saison sind nach Angaben des Robert Koch Instituts bislang 14 Betroffene gestorben, von denen sechs mit Influenza-B-Viren infiziert waren. Ein Großteil der Patienten (79 Prozent) war 60 Jahre oder älter. Seit der 40. Meldewoche im Jahr 2017 wurden insgesamt 6.433 Influenzainfektionen bestätigt.

Wie kann ich mich umfassend gegen das Virus schützen?

Die Grippeimpfung wird nicht von allen gesetzlichen Krankenkassen übernommen. Falls Sie zur Risikogruppe gehören, kann das negative Konsequenzen für Ihre Gesundheit bedeuten. Sollten Sie sich schützen wollen, obwohl Ihre Kasse nicht zahlt, müssen Sie ein Privatrezept in Anspruch nehmen und die Impfung beim Arzt selbst finanzieren.

Wenn Sie Ihre Gesundheit durch umfassende Schutzimpfungen sicherstellen wollen, profitieren Sie von dem DFV-AmbulantSchutz. Unsere Kranken­zusatz­versicherung übernimmt nicht nur die Kosten für alle Schutzimpfungen, die die Ständige Impfkommission am Robert Koch-Institut (STIKO) empfiehlt.

The role of iodine at these other sites are not fully known although the iodine found in the mammary glands is believed to be important to the growth of babies and fetuses.

Humans get iodine chiefly from diet. It can be obtained from plants grown in soils rich in the element. However, soils lose their iodine stores the longer they are farmed.

Seafood is a major dietary source of iodine. Of seafood, kelp is the richest in iodine and the high amount of kelp consumed by Japanese is responsible for the low rate of hypothyroidism in the country.

Besides plants and seafood, most people obtain iodine from iodized salts.

Iodized salts are fortified with iodine and they serve as the major source of this essential, trace element for most people.

The recommended daily dietary intake of iodine is 150 micrograms for adults. However, pregnant women require 220 micrograms and lactating women should get 290 micrograms per day. 90 – 130 micrograms per day is the amount of iodine recommended for children while infants need 110 – 130 micrograms.

The upper tolerable limit of daily iodine intake is 1,100 micrograms for adults.

The average adult actually only needs 70 micrograms per day to produce thyroid hormones. The rest of the daily dietary intake is required for the optimal functioning of the other tissues and organs where iodine is also found in the body.

Maintaining the right balance of iodine is important because too high and too low iodine levels can cause serious harm to the body.

When there is little iodine in the body, the thyroid reduces the number of thyroid hormones produced.

Therefore, iodine deficiency can lead to hypothyroidism. On the other hand, too much iodine may cause hyperthyroidism since the production of thyroid hormones is not slowed down even after optimal levels are attained.

Iodine toxicity can also result from taking too much of the trace mineral and it can be just as severe as hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism.

    Comments: Because Dairy Intolerance is genetic - if you have children - you have already passed on the genetic material to them. Make sure you alert them to the possibility of dairy - or other food intolerance - so they can make changes and protect themselves from future disease.

    If your parents or grandparents are having health problems - why not share this knowledge with them? Dairy sensitive people improve dramatically on a Dairy-free diet.

    A. Lactose Intolerance: The simple strategy for managing Lactose Intolerance is to switch to a Dairy-free diet. However the symptoms for Lactose intolerance are similar to - and often confused with Fructose intolerance. Make sure you know which one you have. To differentiate between food intolerances you need the accurate and proven Journal Method.

    B. Casein Allergy: A dairy-free diet is the answer. However - because milk derivatives are so cheap and abundant - there are now thousands of processed foods and supplements containing Casein (e.g. as "milk solids" or "whey powder" and others). The Complete Guide to Dairy-Free is included in the Healing Program

    Here at foodintol ® we don't regard dairy intolerance as a 'disease'. Therefore it does not need to be 'cured'. Any food intolerance only comes about because we eat foods we cannot fully digest.

    Dairy intolerance is the inability to digest cow's milk - because your body does not have the equipment to process it. After all, cow's milk is intended for the cow's offspring, the calf.

    The symptoms and illnesses caused by dairy intolerance disappear when you stick to a Dairy-free diet. You could try it and see if you get better. Track your symptoms with the Detection Diet Journal in the Healing Program

    I think I might have food intolerance: What should I do?

    Beginning with our free e-book, we can help you establish if you are suffering from gluten or wheat intolerance or if your symptoms indicate an intolerance to dairy, fructose or yeast. You may even be suffering from more than one food intolerance.

    Doing nothing can be a risk. Undiagnosed food intolerance can cause serious long-term health problems like osteoporosis, anaemia and many others.

    To learn more – sign up for the free e-book‘How To Tell If You have Food Intolerance’

    Up to 75% of the world’s population is lactose intolerant to some extent*. In some communities it is even higher (e.g. 90% of African Americans are Lactose Intolerant, and

    80% of Asians). Generally this is not well-known but clinical studies almost forty years ago in the US bear it out.

    Humans are the only mammals on earth to continue drinking milk after weaning at

    2 years of age. And even then it is not our own human milk - but the milk of another species - cows. Western nations consume enormous amounts of cow's milk in products like ice cream, probiotics, butter, yogurt and of course cheese - and in thousands of processed foods like cookies, confectionery and cakes.

    Lactose Intolerance is the inability to digest Lactose, milk sugar, which can only be broken down by an enzyme called lactase. In all mammals including Humans the production of lactase stops after weaning. There are some however - generally of Northern European descent who continue to produce lactase after weaning. This minority is known as 'lactase persistent'.

    I believe it must really weaken your immune system in order for this to happen.

    The first week was great. I could think clearer. Tasks and university work began to become easier to do due to being able to think more in depth and sequentially.

    I may have to redo my units but if I am able to think as clear as the first week I am willing to make that sacrifice.

    Does anyone who has gone cold turkey after long periods on Lexapro as to how long the withdrawals symptoms last?

    i too am weened off lexapro.. this is my 5th day off of my 10mg of 8 months not long i know.

    but i don't want to be on these any more as me and my partner are trying to conceive i think this med is blocking it and keeping is from conceiving so if we get what we want at the end its the only thing giving me hope from these horrendous side effects.

    I really hope i can push from it but all people blog about is how bad the side effects are and the beginning stage. what about after the withdrawals.. is there hope?

    my symptoms are feeling faint light headed migraine sweats shivers and shaking cant concentrate and patchy skin if this is it then fine i can get over this.. but how long will it last? also i am extremely tired won't stop sleeping and signed off from work due to nearly collapsing..:(.

    Hey I have only been on for 9 months at 10 mg and I dosed myself down to 5mg for the past 3 days. I am experiencing pain in my neck but nothing else anyone has been talking about. Did you have any physical pain?

    Just wondering if your neck pain went away? I was only on 10mg of lexapro for 7 weeks, and now have neck and shoulder stiffness with being on this drug and coming off of it.

    To Denice and others with neck pain.

    I am so happy someone finally mentioned the neck pain! I am being weaned off Lexapro, too. I also have fibromyalgia.. I always thought the Lexapro helped me control my fibro pain as much as helped with depression. As I am discontining the Lexapro, my fibro pain has increased. BUT now I also have a severe "pins and needles" neck pain, almost like a herniated disc. Is this the type pain you are speaking of?

    10 Illinois residents have been diagnosed with infections caused by a strain of Elizabethkingia anophelis that is different from the outbreak in Wisconsin
    *Please note that numbers are provisional and may be subject to change.

    Elizabethkingia bacteria are rarely reported to cause illness in humans. Symptoms among people diagnosed with Elizabethkingia infection can include fever, shortness of breath, chills or cellulitis. Confirmation of the illness requires a laboratory test.

    IDPH is currently investigating a cluster of bacterial infections caused by Elizabethkingia anophelis. The majority of patients acquiring these infections are over 65 years old, and all patients have a history of at least one underlying serious illness.

    To date, Wisconsin is reporting 59 confirmed cases, including 18 deaths; Michigan is reporting one confirmed case, including one death. Illinois has one case matching the strain found in Wisconsin. The remaining 10 cases in the current cluster are of a different strain.

    At this time, the source of these infections is still unknown. IDPH is working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Wisconsin and Michigan Departments of Public Health to conduct a comprehensive investigation which includes:

    • Interviewing patients with Elizabethkingia anophelis infection and/or their families to gather information about activities and exposures related to healthcare products, food, water, restaurants, and other community settings
    • Obtaining environmental and product samples from facilities that have treated patients with Elizabethkingia anophelis infections

    About Virus, Bacteria and Fungus Types of Germs Causing Infection Symptoms

    Bacteria, virus, fungus and other infectious germs are inescapably everywhere. These germs are the cause for your fever, runny nose, ache, pain and other signs and symptoms of your cold or flu misery.

    Not all germs cause harm, but knowing more about the bacteria, viruses and fungus germs that do, will help you avoid their illness causing effects.

    It is your immune system that protects you against these infection causing agents, but sometimes they make it across its barrier. When an infection causing germ enters your body and begins to multiply, your immune system immediately goes into action to it fight off.

    Sending out white blood cells, antibodies and other environment adjusting resources in its effort to get rid of whatever is. For example, this is why your body reacts with fever, coughing and sneezing in its battle against a common cold virus.

    There is a notable difference between infection and disease. Infection occurs when bacteria, viruses, fungus or other microbes multiply in your body. Disease is the resulting cell damage of this infection. It is at this cell damage point when your signs and symptoms of an illness are noticed.

    Bacteria is a very small, self-sufficient, one-celled organism that thrives in a variety of environments. However, many bacteria thrive in the mild 98.6 healthy body environment.

    What is the prognosis for patients who get the flu? What are possible complications of the flu?

    In general, the majority (about 90%-95%) of people who get the disease feel terrible (see symptoms) but recover with no problems. People with suppressed immune systems historically have worse outcomes than uncompromised individuals; current data suggest that pregnant individuals, children under 2 years of age, young adults, and individuals with any immune compromise or debilitation are likely to have a worse prognosis. Complications from the flu may worsen medical conditions such as asthma, congestive heart failure, and diabetes. Other complications may include ear infections, sinus infections, dehydration, pneumonia, and even death. In most outbreaks, epidemics, and pandemics, the mortality rates are highest in the older population (usually above 50 years old). Complications of any flu virus infection, although relatively rare, may resemble severe viral pneumonia or the SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome caused by a coronavirus strain) outbreak in 2002-2003, in which the disease spread to about 10 countries with over 7,000 cases, over 700 deaths, and had a 10% mortality rate. Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), a rare immune disorder that can result in weakness or paralysis, may occur after having the flu or very rarely, after vaccination against the flu (estimated by the CDC to be about one person per every million people vaccinated).

    Yes. However, associated deaths per year depend upon the virulence of the particular strain of virus that is circulating. That means for any given year, the likelihood of dying from the flu varies according to the specific infecting viruses. For example, from 1976-2007 (the most reliable available data according to the CDC), deaths associated with the flu range from a low of about 3,000 per year to a high of about 49,000 per year. The CDC estimates about 36,000 deaths/year in the U.S. in recent years. The 1918 flu pandemic (1918-1919) was estimated to cause 20-50 million deaths worldwide.

    The bird flu, also known as avian influenza and H5N1, is an infection caused by avian influenza A. Bird flu can infect many bird species, including domesticated birds such as chickens. In most cases, the disease is mild; however, some subtypes can be pathogenic and rapidly kill birds within 48 hours. Rarely, humans can be infected by these bird viruses. People who get infected with bird flu usually have direct contact with the infected birds or their waste products. Depending on the viral type, the infections can range from mild influenza to severe respiratory problems or death. Human infection with bird flu is rare but frequently fatal. More than half of those people infected (over 650 infected people) have died (current estimates of the mortality [death] rates in humans is about 60%). Fortunately, this virus does not seem to be easily passed from person to person. The major concern among scientists and physicians about bird flu is that it will change (mutate) its viral RNA enough to be easily transferred among people and produce a pandemic similar to the one of 1918. There have been several isolated instances where a person had been reported to get avian flu in 2010; the virus was detected in South Korea (three human cases), resulting in a quarantine of two farms, and in 2012, over 10,000 turkeys died in a H5N1 outbreak with no human infections recorded. Recent research suggests that some people may have had exposure to H5N1 in their past but had either mild or no symptoms.

    In addition, researchers, in an effort to understand what makes an animal or bird flu become easily transmissible to humans, developed a bird flu strain that is likely easily transmitted from person to person. Although it exists only in research labs, there is controversy about both the synthesis and the scientific publication of how this potentially highly pathogenic strain was created.

    Vaccination is the primary method for control of influenza; however, antiviral agents have a role in the prevention and treatment of mainly influenza type A infection. Regardless, antiviral agents should not be considered as a substitute or alternative for vaccination. Most effectiveness of these drugs are reported to occur if the antivirals are given within the first 48 hours after infection; some researchers maintain there is little or no solid evidence these drugs can protect people from getting the flu so some controversies exist regarding these agents.

    Is it safe to get a flu shot that contains thimerosal?

    Thimerosal is a preservative that contains mercury and is used in multidose vials of conventional flu vaccines to prevent contamination when the vial is repeatedly used to extract the vaccine. Although thimerosal is being phased out as a vaccine preservative, it is still used in flu vaccines in low levels. There is no data that indicates thimerosal in these vaccines has caused autism or other problems in individuals. However, flu vaccine that is produced for single use (not a multidose vial) contains no thimerosal; however, these vials are not as readily available to doctors and likely cost more to produce. Consequently, the FDA has published these two questions with clear answers that are quoted below:

    "Is it safe for children to receive an influenza vaccine that contains thimerosal?"
    "Yes. There is no convincing evidence of harm caused by the small doses of thimerosal preservative in influenza vaccines, except for minor effects like swelling and redness at the injection site."

    However, as stated above, the FDA goes on to say that single-dose vial of conventional and other flu vaccines will not contain the preservative thimerosal, so that if a person wants to avoid the thimerosal, they can ask for vaccine that comes in a single-dose vial. The nasal spray vaccine contains no thimerosal, but it is not recommended for use in pregnant women. The CDC further states, that after numerous studies, there is no established link between flu shots with or without thimerosal and autism.

    Where can people find additional information about the flu?

    During a flu pandemic, guidelines and situations can change rapidly. People are advised to be aware that several sources are available to them to keep current with developments. The web sites below are frequently updated, especially when a pandemic is declared. The first web site contains an update written for the public and caregivers; the government and WHO sites provide detailed information that are updated as guidelines and developments occur.

    Influenza A (H3N3)

    Seasonal Human Virus

    By Jeffrey Thornton

    Influenza (Flu) Virus; Etiology agent (Orthomxoviridae)

    The influenza virus is transmitted by respiratory droplets, body fluids such as Saliva, nasal secretions, and blood, or an contaminated surfaces. When an infected person coughs and or sneezes, tiny particles of liquid are released into the air called (aerosols), which contain the influenza virus (2). Another method of transmission is birds. This virus is transmitted by these wild birds typically when a person comes in contact with the bird feces. (2)

    Influenza A (H5N1)- also called “H5N1 virus” –is an influenza A virus is a considered a subgroup that occurs in birds, it is highly contagious among birds, and can also be very deadly to them as well (10). However, this virus does not usually infect humans, but infections have occurred. The majority of these cases have resulted from direct contact with the H5N1-infected poultry or a contaminated surface. (2)

    The hypothesis is that the wild aquatic are considered the first reservoir of all influenza viruses for avian and mammalian species. Transmission of influenza has been discovered between pigs and humans (swine flu). There is some evidence for transmission between wild ducks and other species, and the five different host groups are based on phylogenetic analysis of the nucleoproteins of a large number of different influenza viruses.

    General Characteristics of MO:

    Influenza virus (Orthomxoviridae) consists of spherical particles with an average diameter of 80 to 120 nm (8). A flu virus is roughly round, but it can also be elongated or irregularly shaped. Inside are eight segments of single-strand RNA containing the genetic instructions for making new copies of the virus. Flu's most striking feature is a layer of spikes projecting from its surface. There are two different types of spikes: one is the protein hemagglutinin (HA), which allows the virus to "stick" to a cell and initiate infection, the other is a protein called neuraminidase (NA), which enables newly formed viruses to exit the host cell. (7)

    There are so many different combinations of the influenza virus the subtypes differ because of the proteins in the surface of the influenza A virus (hemagglutinin [HA] and neuraminidase [NA] proteins) (10). There are 16 known HA subtypes and 9 known NA subtypes and 9 known NA subtypes of influenza A viruses (10). Each combination represents a different subtype. All known subtypes of influenza A can be found on birds.
