Tongue eating parasite

Common Questions and Answers about Tongue eating parasite

tongue

Her diet has not changed dramatically since the onset of the orange discoloration on the tongue. I have heard of people eating a lot of beta carotene and having that cause orange palms of the hands and souls of the feet, but not on the tongue. And she doesn't eat a lot of foods that contain beta carotene. This is quite perplexing.
I have 2 Labradors and the 1 is eating the others poop. What in the world would make her do this???? YUK!
1. exam of mouth, teeth, tongue, and upper respiratory system, palpation of abdomen, etc. 2. exam of neck and spine and possible X-Rays 3. CBC and Chemistry blood work including bile acids 4. Urinalysis 5. fecal analysis to check for GI parasites and giving anti-parasite medication. 6. Anal gland expression. If all testing and exams are normal than perhaps an appetite stimulant or a low dose of steroids may help to jump start her appetite.
sometimes. - after 11 weeks I noticed that I have a white coated tongue or hairy tongue don't know exactly the diference. I know also sometimes experience a dry mouth - with my tongue I also started to not have any appetite and I lost weight around 4 kilo in 2 months. I did a CBC and urine tests and they are all normal. what tests should i do? what can it be? what should I look for? whichis the best doctor to consult? Please any advise.
That partially explains she leaving but she used to come back home even more starving after... Im afraid she's eating bad stuff somewhere,dogs food or animals. Just met a bird dead at my backyard,can be a bird that died naturally, killed by another cat or by her - hope no! Do you think she can be sick? Or just "spoiled"?
This particular 'parasite' has yet to be recognized as a parasite and not a bacterium. It is not only carried by cats, but also birds, dogs, snakes, and rabbits. The articles you posted are of the same study. It is only 1 study. Yes, it is intrigueing. Yes, it may raise a few questions. But the 'few'questions are limited. If you are convinced that cat saliva is going to make you sick, there is no interest in trying to convince you to do some real research on the topic.
don't think so, I feel like doctors do not listen But until now i cannot find an explanation to my white tongue and loss of appetite which came together. 3 weeks ago a parasite called entamoeba histolytica was found in my stools. I took medication for 4 days and I will do another stool analysis tomorrow to check if it is gone. I was a healthy person and never had health issues. I do not know what is happening. What do you think about the link I have provided?
R docs says to me there arent many meds out there for treating giardia and parasite so shes givesme this pep talk and says i dont care how you take the flagyl but you must take it if you whant to get better and she makes this example of the poor little children in africa that you can see almost there bones and that are very skinny she says giardia does all this so since i have abad anxiety problem that made me whant to go back on the flagyl i stoped it though and she did give me imodiom to stop
for all thats holy sombody help, it stated 2 years ago and progressivly worsened, i am 33 ys old i am a college student i used to have a very athletic lifestyle now i am just scared, right side throat gland swelling, abdominal swelling right side ,severe constipation , blood in stool everytime, constant cysts in right olvary, removal of three right side breast lumps, tired all the time, severe weight loss, stomach constantly wallows and cramps horrendous cramping, like almost month long periods
my stool/bowels were soft with some diareah, and there was even blood in my stool once, also, my tongue began to get white I noticed; all which are clear symptoms of a parasite. So it made sense and I was pretty convinced, as one of the doctors said it is possible I contracted a parasite. But all the tests came back negative, and it was only because of my persistence and increased symptoms that the doctor decided to prescribe me 500 mg 3x a day of Flagyl, for 12 days! Which btw is a high dose!
Pain in my abdomen, specifically in the upper and upper right side (aka stomach and liver area), extreme bloating after eating, nauseua, fatigue/malaise, loss of sex drive. Also my tongue will turn bright orange sometimes, and often there is a "raw dough" taste in my month, it feels like my stomach and esophagus are full and bloating.
For months I couldn't drink alcohol without vomiting, and had pain and bloating after eating anything oily or too greasy. I also had urgent urges to pee during the day. In August 2011 I had a UTI, treated with antibiotics. In Septmeber I got another kind of infection and took one antibiotic (prescibed for 7 days) for 3 days but was not able to tolerate it, so I switched to another antibiotic (one dosage) and vomited shortly afterwards, so I had to take it a third time (one dosage).
I wonder if this could be a parasite? Usually you would have the opposite problem though, eating a lot and not feeling full...but for some reason this still sprang to mine. Or maybe you have a bacterial infection? The ulcers could be due to bacteria...if you have diarrhea it's probably affecting all areas down there....a lot of time the bacteria from our bottoms cause be spread to our vag area.
Please try not to worry. Many is the time I have had a dog's tongue slobber all over my lips! When I was a child our dog tried to take my food and started eating it (a sandwich) and I snatched it back, and ate it myself. I did not get any infection from that. I realize that someone with a weak immune system might be at greater risk of infection, (usually a tummy upset) Your symptoms might be caused by either fear, worry, or perhaps because the food was suspect to begin with?

I am so anxious to see the specialist tomorrow. Eating well no diarrhea and no sign of the parasite. Thanks so much to all of you for your encouragement. I will be back with an update tomorrow.

I've lost about 4-5 pounds, probably from eating a lot less and the diarrhea. I had full blood work and urinalysis...all normal. Stool sample came back with no parasites, still waiting for C-diff (but I haven't taken antibiotics in 6 months) and waiting for blood in stool result. NO visible blood at all. Had swollen lymph nodes in neck/throat area and under ear, all resolved. Also have tiny fistula about half inch from rectum. Have sensitivity and redness at tip of tongue as of this AM.
have you tried to keep track of what your cat has eaten whe precepts the 'runs' What food is he eating? how often? What environment does he live... urban or rural or in between? is he an inside or outside cat or both? these are questions that need to be asked to get a full idea of how your cat lives and what might be the cause of his gastric problems.
tiny sugar cubes under my tongue. I felt better just 30 minutes after my appointment..not great, but better. It's supposed to improve slowly over time. I have never believed in natural healing. Always been very skeptical. But I'm open to it now. I suggest look into Candida overgrowth AND see a good Naturopath. Also make sure you've had all the necessary tests done to rule things out, which is great for peace of mind (to know you're not dying or anything).
(every 3rd day or so) *waking up with extremely sore/stiff legs that are persisting throughout the day. Some days not as sore as others. *have developed a thick white/yellow lining/coating on my tongue which will not go away with thrush/candida treatment. I even went on a 10 day course of Nizoral to treat this (anti fungal meds), but it hasn't done much to help the problem. I also am seeing the person that I had sexual contact with, (she is my girlfriend).
It's purely psychological, and most days, he isn't like that and even if he thinks he doesn't like something, he can handle eating it. But other days, he just can't...and I don't push it...because I don't want to mop up his puke, lol. I'd recommend having your son checked out by his pedatrician to rule out a stomach virus first. If he's healthy, this is most likely a phase...you just need to find ways to work with it or around it. A website at www. thesneakychef.
I am wondering if I can take the b12 that disolves under my tongue and the shots. I need energy! Oh, I have also had major abdominal pain that has started and I just fele it after swallowing a pill, eating or drinking somethign carbonated. I had the same symtoms with my stomach pain, a coupel months ago, and they did every test known to man and it was normal. Hopefully we can get some anwsers.
I've lost close to 20 lbs in the past few months, but this is because I haven't been eating much and what I do eat is healthy. I'm not sure about electolytes, but when it all started, I was anemic. I started on iron pills and a month later, my iron levels were even lower. So I took three iron tablets a day (there wasn't a malabsorption problem), and it still was low. Somehow it's back to normal now, but they're keeping an eye on it.
Around the beginning of August just after that very hot spell, I was eating some hamburger that probably was very rare.

often have food coming up like reflux. I often worry that it’s not some parasite that has completely infected me and taken over my stomach Most of my problems started a couple years back when I went to my GP saying I didn't feel well. She ordered some tests and soon enough after a gastroscopy was performed, it was found that I had Oesophagitis as a result of candida in my Oesophagus. I was sent to an ID specialist who thought I had HIV.
a pale swollen/scalopped tongue... that gets an orangy coating once I start eating...but it isn't acid reflux that anybodys been able to say.Weakness, fatigue and chills with no fever.
I quit eating chicken thinking that it was a problem with food. I quit eating wheat. I quit eating raw fruits and vegetables because they are known to be harder to digest. I have tried digestive enzymes, and special yogurts to promote digestion. I about about to try grapefruit seed extract. I am very tired of this condition. I have researched it to no ends on the internet and have found no answer. I am terrified I will starve to death because I can never eat.
her abdomen was hard and distended, but they were very surprised that she was eating alot with no diarrhea, vomiting! She is now inside and up to 6 lbs, eats well, begs for treat food, her urine was orangey and gums yellowish, she now uses a box, so dont know about urine but gums are somewhat pinker now, and belly is still distended bit not so hard. could she have a liver condition from near starvation that is reversing itself? any way to tell?
