Due to a lack of formal trials of the effects in humans of taking Hymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta), anecdotal reports from users and their suppliers are all that we have to go on at the present time.

This page should be read in conjunction with Self-treating with HDC.

Side effects

Some people experience no side effects after taking doses of HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta

I treat my 7 year old (started treatment at 6, now taking 10 every 2 weeks) for allergies and psoriasis, and she has never experienced any negative side effects.

Side effects are commonly experienced during the first few days

The main symptom of active disease is constant diarrhea mixed with blood, of gradual onset. (dose of 30 HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta) and I gotta say, it's a rocky ride… [5] Unusually painful cramping, more frequent bathroom trips with longer stays, even worse sleeping due to pain and bathroom trips.

I tried 30 HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta… Very fast like 24 hr later I got terrible diarrhea with a terrible smell. I never smell something like that and I suppose it is the so called industrial smell people speak off… My diarrhea lasted like 2 full days (also at night) but then things got better and normal again in let's say 6 days… I must say I did not see also aggravation of anything else than this diarrhea.

I had my only instance of claustrophobia a few days after inoculating with (25) HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta. It woke me up, but passed in a few minutes. I figured it was related because in 49 years of life I had never felt that sensation. [12]
Quotein.gif
The response I had from the hdc was sweating, feeling sick but it was also especially agitation and depression. [13]
Quotein.gif
I think it aggravated the anxiety component for me. Not sure why.

I took my second dose of HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta 8 days ago and have been suffering from insomnia. Nothing too bad just waking up 1.5 hours earlier than normal every day which is very unlike me. I took 30 the first time but this time took 50 just to see how I tolerated a higher dose. I have also had nasal congestion. [15]

I got significant stomach pain 12 hours after ingestion (of the 4th dose) and did not sleep well. I have bad nausea and diarrhea. HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta always flair up my joint pain for the first day. (This starts within the first 12 hours and lasts about another 12.) So overall the ingestion portion of this experience is not comfortable in anyway... [16]

One user has reported that, on the day he took his second dose of HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta, he got an intense bout of itching all over his body, along with the worst exacerbation of joint pain symptoms that he’d ever had. When he woke the following day, he was still somewhat itchy, but otherwise feeling fine again.

Side effects are often dose-dependent

[17]
Quotein.gif
I started at 30 hdc 3 week apart and increased from there. Side effects have been minor, I get a bit of an upset stomach that lasts a few days. My last 2 doses were 100 hdc 2 weeks apart. With 100 the stomach upset lasts longer. [18]

The risk of side effects is increased if two species are introduced at the same time

When two species of worm are introduced together by someone who has not previously hosted helminthsAn intestinal worm which grows large enough to be seen with the naked eye when mature but which is microscopic when administered in helminthic therapy. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helminths Wikipedia:Helminths], or not hosted for some time, the initial immune response may be excessive and the risk of side effects greatly increased.

I got crazy side effects when I started the HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta and NAthe human hookworm, Necator americanus close together.

Some of these symptoms mirror those caused by [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Influenza influenza] - fever, cough, respiratory symptoms, chills, muscle or joint ache, fatigue, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting. phase can be brutal if you start them about the same time. [19]
Quotein.gif
Irritability, anxiety and agitation were typical symptoms for me when I started HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta and NAthe human hookworm, Necator americanus… the combination was too much for me… I really tried for 6-8 weeks and then cancelled the HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta. [20]

Side effects may take a while to appear after taking a dose

Quotein.gif
We have done 3 doses of 10 HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta each, 3 weeks apart... We notice an increase in acidity about 5-7 days after each dose. [21]

One HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta user has reported that, a couple of days after his initial dose of 30 HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta, his GIGastroenterology is the branch of medicine concerned with disorders of the digestive system which includes all the organs of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract (alimentary canal) from mouth to anus. Physicians practicing in this field of medicine are called gastroenterologists or GI specialists. tract seemed much happier (more well formed bowel movements and less gas/bloating) and that this was similar to the mild 'bounce' he experienced after his first dose of NAthe human hookworm, Necator americanus. But, then, possibly at around 10-14 days, his immune system flared, producing mild fever, gastrointestinal upset, body odour, nasal congestion and sinus pressure, plus fatigue and lethargy.

Side effects can reappear after each of the first few doses, but usually diminish with each dose

Quotein.gif
I had a very heavy reaction to my first dose (about 5-6 days later)... My reaction lasted about 7 days first time and ‘only’ 2 days second time. [22]
Quotein.gif
I had that flu feeling and just wanting to nap! I'm on day 3 of my 1st dose of 20 and 4th dose overall. I usually have side effects 2-5 days afterward - after dose 2 (10 HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta) it felt like a cold and after dose 3 (repeat of 10 HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta) I just really wanted to sleep. I'm a bit fatigued now, but that's pretty much it. Took me so long to get my hands on dose 4, I think I've pretty much passed the hump now, but even after that 1st wk on dose 3 I wasn't really feeling that great. [23] [24]
Quotein.gif
My flaring because of HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta was 5-6 days after intake the first 3 times. [25]
Quotein.gif
I normally have side effects days 2-5 that taper off on day 6 and they seem to have gotten milder with every dose. [26]

Side effects may also reappear after increasing the dosage

Quotein.gif
I upped my dose this month from the 30+30 dose of HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta (i.e., 30 HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta every 2 weeks), which I have taken for over six months, to a 40+40 dose of HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta (i.e., 40 HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta every 2 weeks). Increasing my dose did bring on some symptoms. Once again, I had flu like aches and pains, extra fatigue, and also some intermittent nausea throughout the month. Several times, I had to just go lie down for a long nap due to the symptoms. But the symptoms were really fairly mild overall, and not even close to a level that would make me contemplate quitting. [27]
Quotein.gif
This month I achieved the highest dose of worms recommended by my provider, 60+60 HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta (i.e., 60 HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta every 2 weeks). And I’ve found the wind, figuratively speaking, to be quite stiff up here. Basically, I’ve had some level of nausea every day this month. Sometimes, the level of nausea was significant. I’ve also experienced significant fatigue, muscle and joint pains, loose stools, and some burning skin at this dose. None of this has been enough to make me contemplate quitting on the spot, but it has been enough to make me begin calculating how many days I thought I could endure it, before I was compelled to drop back to a lower dose. Nearly every time I have increased my worm dose previously, I experienced a short period of side effects, as my body adapted the new, increased, level of worms. At most, this was usually only 3-4 days out of the month where I had moderate symptoms. But this time has been different. This time, I’ve had moderate to heavy symptoms every day of the month. [28]

Occasionally, side effects may be experienced after every dose

Quotein.gif
I have Crohn's. I don't get nausea but I will get diarrhea after every HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta or TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis dose. It usually is the 2nd day after swallowing them. Rarely lasts into the 3rd but If I am traveling, I don't risk it. [29]

In a few cases, side effects can persist for several months

Since I started HDCsHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta (three months ago), I have very intense dreams about old painful topics. It does not happen every day, but every now and then. The dreams are very distinct, clear and emotional. I haven't had that in a very long time. [30]
Quotein.gif
I take 30 HDCsHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta every 2 weeks, treating migraine with aura... brain fog and fatigue. It's been three months now and it is hard to take. My migraines have continuously increased in intensity and in frequency since I started the therapy. Right now, I am almost always in pain. [31]

But this may have been due to starting with too high a dose

Quotein.gif
I used 30 HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta every two weeks. The result was that my migraines worsened severely (means I had them every day), I developed a bad eczema and my whole body felt as if it was in an inflammatory state... I am much better now and the worst is over, but looking back, for me, it would have been better to start with ten HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta and slowly build up from there. On the other hand the results now are promising and I am glad about what I have now. [32]

A mother has reported that her children had increased inflammation and yeast growth in the first 4 months of using HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta. [33]

I felt horrible 12 hours after HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta. It lasted about 12 hours and happened every dose I took. I received no benefit from it after 3 months and discontinued taking it. [34]

I took my 6th dose of HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta. Now, I am in my 11th week of taking those. The only side effect that I have really felt consistently throughout the entire journey thus far is sleepiness. I would not call it fatigue because I am not exhausted at all. There are moments when I just have to fall asleep. This is a huge shift from my sleep deprived past. I would never sleep more than 4-5 hours per day in the past 10-12 years. Now, it is like ‘hey, I know you just slept 10 hours last night, but how about a 2 hour nap? [36]

In some people with mast cell disorders, the use of HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta (or any helminthAn intestinal worm which grows large enough to be seen with the naked eye when mature but which is microscopic when administered in helminthic therapy.

I had to stop my HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta experience because of a bad mast cell reaction. I stuck it out four months and looking back I think I shouldn't have done that. I should have aborted it much earlier. [37]

Risk of HDHymenolepis diminuta, a murine (rat) tapeworm. maturation and persistence

HDHymenolepis diminuta, a murine (rat) tapeworm. does not usually reach maturity in adult humans unless they are immunocompromised, taking an immunosuppressant drug such as Entocort [38][39][40][41] or concurrently hosting a number of other helminth species.

[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helminths Wikipedia:Helminths]. [42]

However, HDHymenolepis diminuta, a murine (rat) tapeworm. may grow to adulthood and persist in young children, especially if they are also taking immunosuppressant medication.

The following scientific papers have reported the maturation of HDHymenolepis diminuta, a murine (rat) tapeworm. in children:

And there are several further papers for which there are no details in PubMed. [43] [44] [45] [46] [47] However, the maturation and persistence of HDHymenolepis diminuta, a murine (rat) tapeworm. occurs in less than 1% of children who are treated with HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta and, when persistence does occur, the resulting side effects - mainly gastric pain - resolve within one to three weeks after treatment with anthelminthic drugs.

The following report is from the parent of a child who experienced a persistent infection after receiving a therapeutic dose of HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta.

My son developed a SEVERE infestation of the small bowel that was only discovered on endoscopic pill cam. There were many many worms, almost taking up the whole lumen. Prior to the endoscopyExamination using an endoscope - an instrument used to view the interior of a hollow organ or cavity within the body., he had CRIPLING pain for hours a day. Screaming. We thought it was worsening of previous esophagitis and gastritis until we found the worms. He was also taking Pentasa at the time (an anti-inflammatory that perhaps dampens immune function). So perhaps the Pentasa contributed or perhaps he had delayed small bowel emptying. Who knows. The whole process was a nightmare. He required multiple rounds of anthelminthics to clear the infestation. [48]

Over the course of 6 months, I took 12 doses of HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta and gave my 2 year old about 7 drops out of the pipette each time. Although she is perfectly healthy, I thought this would be a safe, prophylactic approach to lessen her risk of autoimmunity later in life. So how many she actually got, I have no idea and she never showed any side effects from her dose. I quit HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta two months ago due to lack of effect, so this was when she had her last dose.

It aggravated his preexisting chronic diarrhoea at first and rather than pushing on we stopped the treatment. However, around 3 months later I noticed an adult worm in his stool on three separate occasions. It seems some were able to survive, though he was in no discomfort and actually his condition improved somewhat in this period. (Via private message, 2015)

Benefits

I have been getting HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta for the past 6 months for allergic rhinitis and IBSIrritable bowel syndrome is a widespread condition involving recurrent abdominal pain and diarrhoea or constipation. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irritable_Bowel_Syndrome Wikipedia:Irritable Bowel Syndrome], both of which I have been battling for years. The improvements were amazing! I've been taking a dose of 25 - 30 every 3 - 4 weeks since September. Both issues are virtually gone when i'm on them. The effects seem to last for 3 - 4 weeks. I can tell when I need a new dose because my symptoms suddenly re-appear. Then when I take another does within a day or two, huge improvement!

Hi, I just wanted to let people out there know that I have been using hdc with great success for the last 6 mnths. I have lupus and myasthenia gravis and it has definitely helped. Along with hdc I do also use Hk and have been for three years., though for me it wasn't enough on its own and it gave me severe gi issues. I lost my hk frequently, but after adding the hdc I have not had that happen. One huge bonus for me is that I have had hair grow in that I thought was permanently gone due to the lupus.

My father... has something called Samter's syndrome which includes nasal polyps, chronic rhinitis, and aspirin sensitivity. For 20-25 years, he had little senses of taste or smell, from polyps on his sinus nerve, and had multiple surgeries to remove them. Starting about 6 months after getting HWhookworm, usually referring to the human hookworm, Necator americanus (by then, he had about 50, I think), the polyps went away, never to return. He's had his taste and smell all the time, acutely, for now a good 31⁄2 years.” And added two years later, “Now he is getting the same efficacy from HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta.

Also I’ve been prescribed adderall to cope with work and since starting hdc I’ve reduced my dose by ½ and for 2 days immediately after dosing with hdc even that’s too much… I am thrilled with the benefits I’ve had so far. I was seriously looking into applying for long term disability at work and now I can handle it ok again. [65]

My blood sugar came down steadily with my first few doses of HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta, until I was getting readings of 70 (close to perilously low!). Then it normalized to 90-100 range (excellent even for non-diabetics) when dosing with 30 every 2 weeks. When a shipment went astray, my blood sugar crept up to diabetic levels again. The replacement dose arrived 2 weeks late, but brought quick relief, and five days after taking this dose, I was normal again. My blood sugar readings went down each day: first 130 (solidly diabetic), next day 122 (borderline), then 110 (fair), 103 (good) until today 100, NORMAL!

Partial successes

It doesn't outwardly do a huge amount for me to be honest, apart from a lovely mood bounce for 24 hours each dose, and a slight decrease in joint pain. [69]

I initially had some success with HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta but the effect seemed to lessen as i continued... noticed results the first time and i only started with 5... The next time i went with 10 or 15... but it still worked. I think a few times more and i neither got reaction to it nor benefit despite also increasing dosage. I tried a few more times to be sure and nothing... I stopped once the benefits disappeared entirely despite increasing dosage. I guess i used it for a few months. (Edited from several posts in this thread: [70]
Quotein.gif
So all in all I had major negative effects at the beginning followed by moderate positive effects which are not stable. The positive effects are moderate. There is no improvement in some conditions but to have days again where I have good mood is very good and important for me. However this is not stable enough yet. (Reported at 13 weeks.)

I started on HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta because of seasonal allergies, miserable by themselves and also which led to colds a couple of times a year. HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta seemed to give me immediate relief starting from day 2 and continuing for several months. Unfortunately, I stopped them for two months before a medical procedure, and since restarting a month ago, they don't seem to be helping any longer. I can't explain why, unless it's the irregular sizes and frequency of my (home grown) doses, or unless they just need more time. [71]

Further observations

Benefits and side effects may change over time

Quotein.gif
I started with 20 HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta every two weeks for 8 weeks, then switched to 30 HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta every 2 weeks, but the way HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta work on my body has changed over time. At the beginning everything flared up heavily, but then the HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta worked as a great antidepressant and cleared up my brain fog, especially during the first 2-3 days after intake. However, I also seemed to get more joint pain. (After taking abx one time, I lost the benefits and only slowly got a return of the antidepressive effect.) After 4 months, things changed and, now, for 2-3 days every time I take the HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta, I get pretty heavy brain fog, but less issues with joint pain. Then, about 4 days before my next dose, I get more joint pain, and pressure in my head after meals that makes me feel like shit. I may have mast cell involvement, and this might be the cause of these symptoms, possibly due to my mast cells having taken some time to start reacting to the HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta.

At this point, I had been just over 3 weeks without any worms, which is just about how long they usually live in an immuno-competent human. Almost on cue on the 21st day without worms, I noticed my first hints of symptoms. “That was an odd sensation”, I recall thinking. Then, the next day, the wheels just fell off my wagon. I was laid up in the bed with muscle and joint aches like I had the flu with a fever of 102F. But I had no fever at all. Of course, my back and hip rheumatic pain had to put in their appearance also. I was in a real pickle for about three days, before I finally began to come to myself. I had three really bad days, then three somewhat more tolerable days, but I was still far from well. Old symptoms were beginning to return also, like stiffness in my fingers. [78]

Others reporting a similar experience include the mother of a child with Crohn’s who explained that he began to bleed on two occasions as a result of delays in taking his doses of HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta.
