Dear customer,

Have you had a complete blood count done? What was the result? Were eosinophils increased?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

as far as i no they have only dun the normal checks u no like liver kidneys and what ever the other things they check for i don' t think they have checked for parasite i no that when they checked the sputum the found an organism in it but just put it ,down to a chest infection. The other thing i forgot to say was parts of my body like my arms and legs have been bubbling up and the vains pump up and they look like they are all bobbley and theres little brown spot on my body hope that is some help

Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 1 year ago.
Dear customer,

Thanks for your question.

Basically if there was a parasitic infection your eosinophil count would have increased in most cases.

Now what I would suggest is to have your stool examined under the microscope to look for parasites. You may have to submit several stool samples. Also your doctor may order a stool culture if indicated. Also please consult an infectious disease specialist and this will be very beneficial in your case and will help treat any bacterial infection if present.

Also please show the dilated veins in your body to your doctor they could be varicose veins. The veins that are most commonly affected are those in your legs and feet.

Take care.

Dear customer,

There are some parasites that may cause neurological symptoms, however for disk prolapse this is not due to parasites. Please consult your doctor and a physical therapist and your symptoms will improve.

Take care.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

ok thanks about the back.but as for all the other things and my blood being sticky and it doesn't look or run normal that it could be a parasites in my blood?

Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 1 year ago.
Dear customer,

If you had a complete blood count done, I am sure your doctors would have examined your blood under the microscope and looked for hemoparasites. If they had been present you would have been treated for it. Hence I don't think you have parasites in your blood. However if you suspect please have a peripheral smear examination done.

Take care.
