MR IUNDERSTANDPERFECTLYI AM GLAD THERE IS SOMEONE THAT FINALLY UNDERSTANDS WHAT I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO EXPLAIN TO THESE AVOID THE ANSWER DOCTORS I HAVE BEEN TALKING TO.
I TRIED TO EXPLAIN TO THEM THAT THERE IS THIS MUCUS THAT I BLOW FROM MY NOSE ALMOST 4 OR 500 TIMES A DAY IT SEEMS LIKE.
1. IT IS CONSTANT AND ALL DAY,AND WHEN I BLOW MY NOSE AND CLEAN IT THE MUCUS FORMS AGAIN IN SEEM LIKE 4 SECONDS AND THIS IS ALL DAY LONG NON-STOP.
2. SOMETIMES IT IS A LARGE AMOUNT OF LOOSE LIQUID,
SOMETIMES IT COMES OUT AS A LARGE PIECE OF SOLID RUBBERY SILICONE,
SOMETIMES IT COMES OUT AS YOU SAID WORM LIKE AND STRINGY BUT STILL HAS THE TEXTURE OF RUBBERY SILICONE,
SOMETIMES IT COMES OUT IN LITTLE PIECES OF RUBBERY SILICONE.
IT IS VERY AGGRAVATING TO HAVE TO BLOW YOUR NOSE ALLDAY FROM MORNING TO NIGHT WITH THIS STUFF COMING OUT.
I HAVE ALSO NOTICE THAT WHEN I TRY TO RELAX BY LYING DOWN IT'S LIKE IT KNOWS THIS AND IT AUTOMATICALLY STARTS AND OF COURSE I START TO BLOWING AGAIN AND THERE GOES MY MOMENT OF RELAXATION.
I ALSO NOTICE THAT IT IS WORSE WHEN I AM EATING SOMETHING SPICY,OR DRINKING SOMETHING HOT LIKE TEA.I HAD ONE DATE NOT LONG AGO THAT PROVED TO BE EMBARACING BECAUSE WHE WERE HAVING A NICE DINNER AND CONVERSATION AND I WAS SITTING THERE RESISTING THE URGE TO GO IN MY POCKET FOR THE HANDKERCHEIF TO BLOW MY NOSE AND MY FEMALE DATE CRACKED A JOKE THAT WAS ACTUALLY REALLY FUNNY WHICH BROUGHT ABOUT A SUDDEN LAUGH FROM ME AND GUESS WHAT A RUBBERY SILICONE BALL JUMPED OUT OF MY NOSE AND LANDED RIGHT ON THE SLEEVE HER NICE BLACK DRESS,AND OF COURSE I NEVER HEARD FROM HER AGAIN.AND YOU KNOW WHATS FUNNY THE DOCTORS CAN NEVER TELL YOU ANYTHING ABOUT IT AND I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT THE ONES I HAVE TALKED TO LOOK AT ME AS THOUGH I AM MAKING THIS STUFF UP. I HAVE NO EXPLAINATION FOR IT BECAUSE I DON'T SMOKE,I DON'T DRINK,I DON'T DO DRUGS,I EAT ORGANIC FOODS AND I EXCERCISE WHEN I CAN.I DON'T HAVE SINUS PROBLEMS AS I KNOW OF AND A PERSON CAN'T HAVE A COLD 365 DAYS OF THE YEAR I DON'T THINK.
SO IF YOU FIND SOMEONE WITH ANSWERS PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH

TCOMG, so close to what I am going through for years! I dont even know WHAT to look up. I bring up a round rubbery stickly thing about the size of a dime. It can vary in color from clear to green-yellow to blood tinged. I can actually gag for days trying to get it up or it can just slide out. I've tried sinus rinses, you name it. I am scared but also live in a one horse town with no kind of doctors what even know what to do. I will read you blog from the beginning. Thank YOY

Hi Jack

You say - "ok now we know what is it is how do you get rid of it. I cant live like this anymore i want to feel normal"

My response -
I am not positively certain what it is but I am pretty sure it relates to my parasite infections and other infections. The slimy mucus I spit up constantly I am sure is caused by large worm(s), I think the the mucus protects the worm, acting like a barricade. I spit it up constantly. Also, when I experience a flare-up of symptoms I always spit up white blobby white stuff, sometimes very, tiny round balls which I have always thought were parasite eggs. I'm not certain but from my results and from what I have researched I'm sure this is what I am experiencing.

I cannot say that this is what you are experiencing. I'd get some tests done if I were you.

So, Mr. Samethinghappeningwithme, are you saying you took Golden Seal and it fixed the problem? Will this get rid of parasites, or do you have to get perscriptions for that?

Hi 'Mr Samethinghappeningwithme'

I have taken golden seal before, yes but it didn't fix my problem. I've needed more than just golden seal to deal with my problem.

Golden Seal, I believe, can help with certain parasite problems. Google it along with parasites and you'll find plenty of information.

I didn't need a prescription for golden seal.

rajen shahI had similar symptoms, albeit to very less extent. it could be Tropical Pulmonary Eosinophilia. and it is a condition called Lymphatic filariasis. caused by lymphatic filarial parasites. TPE can mimic diseases as varied as asthma and lymphangitic carcinomatosis. The current recommended treatment of TPE is DEC, 6-10 mg/kg of body weight daily for 21 days.

ALL DAY LONG I BLOW MY NOSE, AND RECENTLY I FEEL LIKE THERE IS HAIR OR SOMETHING ON THE BACK OF MY THROAT ALL DAY. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU FIND ANYTHING OUT.

Hi Candace

Thanks you for your comment. 5 years is a long time to suffer anything. Do not be worried about going to your doctor. You should be able to discuss absolutely anything with him/her. You can only tell the doctor what you are experiencing and take things from there. It sounds like it is having a huge impact on your life. Symptoms which were not apparent before and suddenly appear - there's always a cause and you need to find out. It may just be a simple test that is required. A nasal swab may be taken? You may be referred to Ear, Nose and throat.

I didn't have much success with my own doctor but it doesn't mean to say you won't.

Good luck.

AlycejayneI have the exact same problem, sorry to say, but when alone, I find myself with my finger up my nose. Eww...I know, however the reason being, is it is the only way to pull out these worms, and I then can reach to on end and stretch them out, them do not pull apart. They are infact white worms. I can feel them moving around up in my nasel passages and it drives me nuts. Now, this has become an incredible worry since I now have spot on the back of my lower head that the skin layers have completely broken down, and it is easy to feel the bone of my skull, this is getting larger with hair loss, as large as the bottom of a glass. Could this sort of parasite get into any other parts of my head? Migrains have been outrageous, and doctor will not give me a MRI nor a CT.

Hi Alycejayne

Thank you for your comment.

Have you always suffered from migraines? If, all of a sudden they started happening and you weren't having them before, then I'd say something isn't right. Of course this should not be ignored, it should be checked out. You say your doctor won't do an MRI or CT Scan yet what does he/she have to say with regards to your horrendous migraines? If I were you I'd go back for another check and/or ask for a second opinion. You are entitled to it.

Do let us know how you get on.

Good luck.

Comment from: Ray Smith [Visitor]
Ray SmithI can relate to much of what people are saying here, and it's nice to finally run across others who are experiencing similar problems.

For the past 20 years or so, I've dealt with a white rubbery-type substance in my nose, but so far, doctors and ENTs cannot find the problem. I've had CAT scans and other things, but nothing appears wrong. It is really puzzling. Mine are not "worm" per se, but rather globs of white, stringy silicone-like stuff that never seems to go away, except for a brief time during the warmer months.

Like another poster said, this causes me to blow my nose constantly, and when I blow out the substance, it creates headaches as well as pain in my face.
It's a real nuisance and nothing seems to help.

I have an appointment in two weeks with my 4th or 5th ENT, and I'm hoping we can resolve this thing forever once and for all. It really impacts my life negatively and I'm at my wits end with it.

I've scoured the Internet to hopefully try to figure out what this is, but to no success. This site is the first one that deals with my problem.

Thanks for listening.

Comment from: Jane [Member] Email
20 years you've had this! Oh lordy lord! Have you ever experienced a bad odour from your nasal passages? I used to get it all the time and it was horrendous! A very, very foul odour. It's very distressing indeed, to be around people, when I experienced this. I'd be in tears, that's how bad it was. Horrendous!

Back in the early years of my illness, after giving up on my own GP, I went private and saw a kinesiology practitioner who was also a practicing doctor. He diagnosed me with many things (including babesia microti, bartonella) and also ascaris. Here's what he said about my ascaris infection -

"Ascaris in maxillary sinuses, stomach, large bowel, covered by ......but not by Albendazole

I was always confused why Albendazole didn't appear to work for me but he said something along the lines that my body was blocking it? Kinesiology I found hard to grasp, although I found it fascinating what he did.

I thought Albendazole would clear the problem up, but it didn't. He put me on another parasite formula and it still didn't clear my ascaris problem. I could never understand it. Was I dealing with a resistant problem?

There are many products out there that claim to deal with parasites and worms. In my opinion and experience of what I have endured, I'd say it depends on the type of infection, how long the infection has been there and how significant it is. With regards to taking a 30-day parasite cleanse, it may not always be enough to eradicate the problem. I remember when I was having colonics, the woman told me depending on how long the infection has been there, the longer it will take to get rid of it. I couldn't get my head around it. I thought you took a few pills and you'd be done. Never, ever did I realise it can take a heck of a long time to even begin to feel better. But that's my experience.

Re: your appointment, your onto your 4th or 5th ENT? My word! Please do come back and let us know how you get on.

All the best.

EdI jus started blowing up these bloody blobs today. The first dozen were fragments. Then same the three inch blod and then several ovals. Then came the one inch blob and more ovals. Each of these seemed to be covered in bloody mucus.

I took Exederine sinus medicine this morning thinking it was a sinus infection. After taking the medicine (OTC stuff) the blood works began. It has not stopped for the entire day (two to three times an hour it seems). I began keeping the larger fragments in zip-lock bags so that I can have something to show the doctor if this does nt stp in a few days.

Hot showers, hot tea, and laying down seem to provoke these little buggers to somming up. I know they are comming because my left nasal (side of my nose) feels obstructed. I sneeze hard and out they come.

I don't know what it is I thought it was because of my bronchitis and I have nothing to be afraid of. Just today this hour i was in my room and i cough up a bit and again there was this secretions.Its only scanty in amount and always colorless. Also i never thought of it but whenever i have colds it goes for atleast 2 weeks and then my nose is obstructed but the secretions are only white fluids. Im really confused but is this really a parasite? I got really scared when I have read that this was due to a parasite.

Please guys help me... Im really scared

Hi Gloria

Thank you for your comment. You say you've been coughing for several weeks and it's getting worse. Have you been to see your doctor? Have you had a chest x-ray? These would be my first questions. A persistant cough should be checked out.

It is very difficult to know exactly what it could be, it could be a multitude of things. Unless you know what you're looking at can you really tell what's in sputum, spit or mucus without a trained eye's view or perception? I certainly don't.

You mention stringy stuff. Candida? Have you ever tried spitting up some of the stuff into a glass of water and leaving it to sit for a while? I've heard of this home test. I believe you'll see stringy bits dangling down into the water if candida is the culprit. But I'm unsure if this would be an accurate test. And even so, it could be something else, other than candida.

You could have your sputum tested?

Thanks for your comment.

You sure sound like you've been through the mill!

Yes turmeric has many health benefits. It has many great properties - antiseptic/ antibacterial/ antiinflammatory to name a few. It’s also great for the liver too, a good detoxifier.

I do believe it can help heal wounds quicker so I can understand when you say it has helped heal your sores. I bet they're painful.

You say you inhaled it?! I've never heard of taking it like that before!

I took turmeric in an early phase of my protocol.

You think Humaworm is a weird name lol. I think it's quite an apt name! A dewormer for humans.

I've taken Humaworm many times, it's a great formula and the herbs are fresh. Extra strength doses can also be prescribed for stubborn infections.

I am more of the opinion that, depending on the significance of a person's infection(s), multiple cleanses may be required over a period of time.

I have tried many different brands and have rotated.

JudyI too am experiencing all the same symptoms. I have been dealing with this for 7 years. I had no problems prior to that. Now I am afraid to go in public because of this problem. When I cry it gets worse and can not breathe through my nose at all. I have tried all the products and been to 3 different Dr.s. First Dr ripped me off doing useless surgical procedures. The other Dr. put me on Alegra D which made my nose completely dry and when these blobs came out just dried up and constantly had my finger up my nose to clear a breathing path. The 3rd Dr discovered a growth in the back of my throat that the other 2 never saw. None the less it didn't help after the removal. This last Dr also put me on a kinda nasal inhaler called Q nasal which helped a short time. It no longer works though. I am not allergic to anything. They are calling it non allergic Rhinitis. They say there is no cure. I hate living like this as well. Don't want to go anywhere and always feel tired and ill 365 DAYS A YEAR!!

GregWell I was really amazed to find someone with the same symptoms.Ive had this same cough since 2009. I looked at your pics and the comments, and yes its Curschmann spirals.Put them on a clear dish with some water and a black
background and although they look like a blob
they can be teased out into long strands around 2 inches long. I showed my pics to my lung specialist last week, and will get something to
thin them out. Many thanks I wouldnt have figured it out without reading your posting, so I hope it helps others as well. They seem to be linked to bronchial asthma but there are other
reasons too. Im guessing, but they probably find their way up the nose. A parasite is also a possible cause, although the stringy bits and blobs are just part of the mucus spirals, as any parasites would be really tiny. Fungus such as aspergillis if there should be able to be located in sputum sample. A possible parasite might be s.sterocalis which can be tested for and treated with Ivermectin.Its around in SE USA. Its great you are feeling better and thanks again for the posting.Good health ! Greg

Hi Greg

Thank you for your comment.

I'm doing fine, I'm just about to write an update post with regards to recent events. Although my symptoms are night and day to what they were previously, what I suffered for years, recently I experienced an increase in some symptoms which I'm just about to write about.

I also coughed up what I consider to be a white worm. I had irritation in my lungs, coughing bouts, and increase in mucus and nasal congestion with slight odour.

charlotteyes yes yes I too experience this same thing and it has been increasingly worst over the last year. Finding your site has been proven to be AMAZING! I thought what I was experiencing was symptoms of COPD, (smoking since I was 14 I am now 36) I grew up with second hand smoke all my life so you can see why I thought the worst EMPHYSEMA! But now I have come to believe that this is my problem!!!!
Maybe Nichole in an earlier post is on to something..... MORGELLONS believed to be caused by the spraying of chemtrails over our skies.


thanks for listening

LaurieSince I had sinus surgery over 10 years ago, I continually get some type of infection in my left sinus. There is a small hole that goes from the from the skin inside my left nostral directly to the bone or cartiledge of my septum. This area constantly gets infected,and the surgical incision (tiny hole) never closes and never heals. It tries to scab over, but never fully forms because of the infection/stringy growth underneath, which can go from white to dark gold to brown, and the darker the stringy mucas the worse I feel. In fact, the last time I got really sick with this, I wound up in the hospital with pneumonia, I attribute this at least partially to this hole inside my left nostral. It seems to be home base for whatever is brewing. I know that Candida is playing a part in this, but maybe something else as well. I can't tolerate sugar, and I noticed that spices, pickles and eating protein make me feel a little better. The area around the hole inside my left nostral occasionally stings or throbs, and the color of the mucas can be white to dark gold or brown. The darker the mucas, the sicker I feel. It really acts up when I catch a cold or a virus. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I will try tumeric. I did a Colinex cleanse a couple of years ago, and that helped me to feel better overall, but the issue persists inside my left nostral.

Hello Lady Jane

I recently suffered a bereavement, hence why I have not managed online.

VickiI have had this problem too since 2008, so that's five years. White or tannish, greenish stringy or thready mucus along with clearish silicone/rubber cement sort of stuff. One nurse practitioner said she saw it hanging at the back of my throat like so much string. The doctors all around here insist it is asthma and the not breathing thing can be a problem if it gets bad. I have resorted to self care since the doctor prescribed treatment was expensive and ineffective despite making many trips, seeing many doctors, and keeping records to share with doctors. I have found that progesterone cream applied topically has made the situation much more liveable, exercise and sunlight helps tremendously. I take generic sudafed (that you have to get through a pharmacist). I am at my wits end about how to get rid of this for good. Taking an acid-reducer at night before bed helps a lot. My thought was that this might be some sort of digestive disorder which will then lead the mucus production to go into overdrive in order to protect mucus membranes. Cure the underlying problem and possibly cure the disease? I'm so sick of this!

Hi Vicki

Excess mucus can be caused by a wide variety of things going on in the body. Food intolerances, allergies, infection, toxins, pollutants, etc., it's hard to say what is causing yours. For me, the stuff I was coughing/spitting up was mainly clear/white with blobby stuff in it. Mine is way much better, I used to have copious amounts of the stuff but now I only have small slicks. I put my excess mucus down to infection due to my numerous other symptoms.

An anti-acid tablet did nothing for me.

Have you ever tried Olive Leaf Extract or even Oregano Oil. These cover a wide variety of ailments. You could try a search for herbs that help with excess mucus. It's where I would start.

MeiI have been having this stringy/blob jelly mucus and chronic (monthly) sinus infections for 3 years. I had sinus surgery 10 months ago for a slightly deviated septum and to correct a hole in my left sinus that my ENT thought was recirculating mucus back into my sinus, leading to stagnant mucus and infection. I've been getting allergy shots for 2 years. I had 3 more sinus infections after the surgery and was getting post nasal drip (thick mucus). A skin allergy test was positive for soy and was very itchy and looked like a swollen mosquito bite, but the blood allergy test came back negative for soy. I have been on a mostly soy free diet for 4 months and have not had any sinus infections and the symptoms have majorly subsided. I researched soy sensitivities, and soy is in so many things like chocolate, vegetable oil, etc. I mostly cook things from scratch and try to stick to veggies and meats. I've noticed alcohol and especially red wine causes nasal congestion and pressure/headache for me. From books I've read, there are many food groups that cause sensitivities such as gluten, soy, eggs, dairy, etc and there are books that discuss elimination diets to help pinpoint culprits. My allergist thinks my sensitivity may go further than soy to the legume family so I'm trying to take it easy on beans, etc as well. Not sure if this helps, but thought I'd share my experience.

JigarIt's CANDIDA! I had the same thing a few months ago ! Constant discharge of stringy like stuff from nose and so I took fluconaze nasal spray and it went away but then the candida spread to my cns and now I have candida meningitis and the nose stuff comes back here an there I am going to hospital now to get everything checked out! Remember doctors don't know .. [edit].. about this stuff it's almost like there's a purposeful ignoring of this type of infection! Fight for your life!
