My fiance' was had a boil on his leg and went to the Hospital back in November 2012. The doctor had to cut his leg in two different places to help release the pressure and drainage associated with the infection. The wound has healed since then, but nothing is better. His leg has these horrible twitches. I CAN SEE HIS LEG TWITCH WITH MY OWN EYES, AND IT SCARES ME TO DEATH! Does anyone know why this is happening? He says it's so painful, and I'm scared because I don't know what to do for him. Please help!

Trying to Understand What Happened

Back in 2012, I had a small bump on my thigh that itched. I scratched it and it
seemed to go away. But, shortly thereafter, it came back with a vengeance. I tried
draining it on my own, but it kept getting worse. I knew without a doubt I needed
help when it was a hot humid August day, and I was wearing four layers of
clothes. Redness had spread around half one side of my thigh. My sister drew a
circle around it and said if it changed by morning to go to the doctor. The
redness spread more, and so I went. The doctor gave me antibiotics and redrew
a circle. Come back tomorrow if no change. It got worse. So, my mother took
me back, where the boil looking center was drained. My mother said they cut
deep into my leg to scrape out all the infection. The small (pencil eraser size) but
deep looking hole was filled with what the doctor called antibiotic tape (he packed
over a foot of tape into it). A shot in the hip and antibiotics followed. Every other ... read more

Cleaning up MRSA

Started September 13, 2011 at 13:47
I understand MRSA can live on surfaces, is that correct? If so, for how long? I can't even imagine all the surfaces in my home I have touched between contracting it and being diagnosed.
I am uncertain how often to clean up to know that I have gotten rid of as much of it as I can. Must the MRSA drainage from an open wound touch something or is it simply on the skin and anything or anyone I touch can pick it up? Even pets?
Also, I work at a fabric store, I have touched hundreds of fabric bolts, not to mention cash registers, shelves, items, etc. Can I reinfect myself from that? (And my furniture is of course, fabric, how does one cleanse that?)
I have noticed people mention bleach and also garlic water to clean up the home after an MRSA outbreak. I prefer garlic over bleach. How strong of a compound of garlic and water will work?
I fear the antibiotics won't work after seeing the problems people are having. If they do work, I fear re-occurance and re-infection so I want to try a... read more

Im tristan, 16 years old.
I have had a CR severe,terrible past few months with
a severe and worsening MRSA infection. I first got
an abscess about 3 inches wide on my left eye and
after being given 4 antibiotics it started going
away. As soon as I started this medication Bactrim
it started hurting my back so on the third day it
was bad enough I went to the hospital. I asked for a
MRI or CT scan knowing that this would detect the
pain and thathe an x ray would not see my problem
considering the pain was internal feeling like my
organs almost were in pain. Still they took me off
my Bactrim and sent me off telling me to take
ibuprofen and Tylenol together as needed. Anot her 2
weeks go by and the pain is so bad in my back that I
can't even move out of bed without bursting in tears
from the sheer pain. I go back to the hospital and
the doctor basically sees me for 2 minutes pokes my
back and hurts me and when I move he calls it a

MRSA and blood pressure

I have CA-MRSA that has been treated with bactrim/rifampin/muciporin as well as one treatment of an IV of something (honestly, I was too upset and in too much pain in the ER to even care what it was..but I am trying to find out now)....anyway, my blood pressure was off the charts when I first went to the doctor (200/110) and as I have gotten better (which I say loosely since I know that things can change quickly) it has gotten lower (140/90---still high but I am still on meds and not quite 100%). Has anyone else had high blood pressure associated with their MRSA outbreak? I know BP can be influenced by many things (needless to say that I have been very stressed out, in lots of pain and medication can impact BP) but my doctor is talking of BP meds (though agrees that we should wait and see considering that it has been dropping so much over the past week). I am willing to deal with high blood pressure but I don't want to miss something (like MRSA effecting the heart). My BP wasn't... read more

Can MRSA infect bones/joints?

I am a 54 year old female and have had MRSA for the last 4 months, thought to a caused by a bite from a Brown Recluse spider. 3 to 4 days after I finish an antibiotic, I start showing signs of MRSA again. I have had boils, sinus, throat/tonsil problems and now seem to be affected in my bones and joints. Recently, all joints of my arms, shoulders, hips, knees and ankles are very painful. It almost feels as though my entire arm and leg BONES hurt as well. (I have had MILD Osteoarthritis for about 15 years in my knees and ankles but nothing like this!) Does anyone know if MRSA can affect bones and/or joints? My doc is sending me to an infectious disease doctor but I have not had the appointment yet. Thanks for any information you can share with me! God Bless you all! Carole

Vaginal MrSA

Started May 3, 2011 at 03:31
I am really hoping to get some help on this. I have had MRSA in my vaginal area
over the past year. It began around Feb 2010. I had a gyno exam and ever since
then I have continued to have mrsa outbreaks on my labia. At least once a month.
Sometimes even more than that. I try to use natural remedies but don't often stick
with it. Just recently I have had one again almost a month since my last one. When I
have these outbreaks sometimes i will try to deal with it holistically, with say
charcoal, turmeric, and garlic but yet they still keep coming. When I go on the
antibiotics that seems to help, but only for a little while.

To describe my outbreaks, it will start as a very smal bump under the skin on my
labia.. It doesn't come to a head. and then it just grows and gets bigger all the
while under the skin. because I normally try and treat it holistically to start out
with, it gets so painful I have to go to the Urgent care for an I & D.. I have probably

I learned of this protocol on a fb
mrsa support group and it has helped
me very much with fatigue joint pain
and it has weakened but not stopped
the boils. E tea capsules or essiac
tea,colostrum, red clover, natural
fiber,take this four supplement three
times daily and vitamin b the kind
you squirt under your toung..I 've
been doing this four one month and
haven't had this much energy since
contracting mrsa..I'm still getting
boils but they are tiny and don't
make me sick or weak anymore. They
die in a day or two with topical
urine treatment. I also spray daily
with a squirt bottle my whole body
with urine colidiol silver and or
essential oils. .I really do feel
better..if the fatigue is killing you

MRSA & Memory Loss
Posted by Incognito
Last Reply February 20, 2017 at 15:17
Started February 2, 2012 at 05:52
In 2007 I developed a systemic MRSA infection that shut down my immune system. About a month later, I developed Mono and was put on a long list of medications and complete bed rest for 2 1/2 months. Over the next three years I continued to have MRSA skin and soft tissue infections and also had pneumonia each year. Finally, in 2011 I only had one minor MRSA infection, but had drug resistant pneumonia twice for a total of four months. I'm glad to be rid of the skin infections; however, my memory seems to be shot.

Do long-term MRSA infections contribute to or cause dementia or alzheimer's type symptoms?

Anyone Willing to Share Story in video?

I'm looking to make a PSA-public service announcement-type video
telling the serious, long-term affects of MRSA. My friend's
daughter has recurrent staph infections in her ear that have
resulted in multiple surgeries near the brain, loss of hearing,
loss of balance, and migraines, etc. Even worse, her dreams of
career, etc., have been derailed. Her parents have actually
started a company that is focused on preventing infectious
disease.

If you are also suffering with MRSA (which I'm guessing you are
since you are on this site), I'm sorry for your struggle.

Would you be willing to share YOUR story to show the real life,
life-changing effects of MRSA? The video would be used in
infection control training and may be on our website. If so,
please respond here. Thank you.

does anyone here know what mrsa does to the brain or neurological structure. what are the scientific facts? how does it affect the brain structure? if it does go to the brain and nervous system. i heard it can affect any system if it becomes systemic or in the blood.

im asking because i got sick from mrsa an agressive form of it that is very difficult to treat. i got sick from it a few months before i was 26 yrs old, now im almost 30 and have been sick for 4 yrs.

i noticed that within weeks of getting the infection as it was getting worse i started to get terrifying symptoms such as not being able to think or concentrate anymore, trouble with my short term memory suddenly. out of nowhere i felt like i was suddenly getting alzheimers at 25 ys old. i felt my mind slipping away and a sudden decline of my mental skills

it took my doctors months to even diagnose me correctly and my mrsa was left untreated for half a year until i got antibiotics, by then it was resistant to every... read more

I know very well phage therapy treatment from Georgia, but I found
much more. Some of them use bacteriophage cocktail
(www.intralytix.com, www.phagoburn.eu) or even phage vaccines against
mrsa (www.immlab.com). Maybe this could be the solution to the
