What is scattering?
People in health forums talk about “scattering” when dealing with serious parasite infections that get out of control. They talk about “feeling parasites” in weird places. Scattering is comprised of many different feelings, sensations and symptoms that go hand-in-hand. This starts simultaneously and increases after taking the wrong dose or combination of antihelmintic medication or herbs. I think this is important to point out. It is not a person feeling something weird here and there and figuring out it must be parasites. It is a framework of sensations and symptoms that happen in people with a determined health situation, many times after taking a particular medication or treatment. Plus, there are lab tests that have been carried out and proved these infections are real.
When describing these sensations people talk about wiggling, twitching, tickling, biting, etc. aside from more serious physical symptoms. I’ll try to describe as best as possible what it feels like for me. This is just my experience.
What does wiggling or crawling under the skin feeling like? The wiggling feeling is like thin snakes (of different sizes) moving and traveling under the skin/or in muscles slithering like snakes. Sometimes there are twitches and strange vibrations (you can actually see the skin jump sometimes when twitches happen!). I’m not having so much movement in legs now, but I’ve had a lot of these symptoms in my legs, feet, back, and in arms too but not as much. In head (under the skull) feeling goes from crawling to slithering and biting sensations, poking in ears, and occasional tickling in nostrils. Can sometimes feel as itchiness in ears and nostrils too. Not fun! Head feelings are usually accompanied by other sensations such as heat, pain, dizziness, even nausea.
In thorax but mainly abdomen there is a a lot of tickling involved for me. Like if something inside was moving and tickling you in the under part of your skin or in an organ while it moves. A slithering movement kind of tickling. I specially have the tickling in the under part of skin feeling.
In intestines/belly aside from the tickling/biting, I do feel like a ball moving/vibrating sometimes too. Very spontaneous and punctual feeling.
What does “biting” feel like? Biting is like pricking, mostly. Like if someone was poking you with a needle. A very small but sharp pain. In my case I mostly have the sensations in intestines, abdomen area, sometimes in throat (here it is a very weird and light feeling) and head. Not so much in muscles.
Wiggling can occur everywhere (if we accept that wiggling is in fact a worm moving, this means that infection can expand everywhere). You can feel it under skin and in organs, even in eyes.
I don’t know what it feels to others, but this is approximately how my sensations can be described. Not being a native English speaker, I have done more translation work than usual for this post, trying to understand the nuances that each of the words I’ve used to describe physical sensations has in English, to make sure they apply to what I’m feeling. If there is a strange or somewhat inconsistent word along the way this can be the reason for it.
These “sensations” can be accompanied by other physical symptoms. My physical symptoms of infection have never been terrible like for other people. Most of the symptoms I’ve experienced, though, match other people’s dealing with this stuff. I suppose symptoms depend on the seriousness of each infection, other co-factors and each individual’s immune system reaction and overall health.
It does sound nuts. If you haven’t gone through this, it is very difficult to understand. Please try for a second to understand how distressing and desperate it can be to try to sleep at night while going through a bad episode of wiggling and moving around. In my case, when I walk or move, the feelings, specially the ones in muscles, disguise somewhat. While lying or sitting in stillness this can be very distressing; again, it is very hard to imagine if you haven’t experienced it. The severity varies a lot from one month to another or one day to another, which makes it a bit confusing too. I’m lucky my “movements” aren’t bad all the time.
