    There have been a couple of Morgellons-related threads on WS, both from 2006.

    I love the quote from the neurology professor, "The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence."

    What a strange phenomenon. I really hate it when medical people tell women it is all in their heads!

    I remember reading about this before, now I can't find the link. A doctor, I think he was in Texas, was creating a cream and something else, I think lemon sulphue tablets, can't remember nor find the link now. The doc passed away unfortunately, but someone kept the link going for a while and had pics of the "critters" of the cause. It freaked me out.

    I don't know the answers, but I think it is real not in the head. Much like those young girls in the news now with the Turret's symptoms, I think that is chemical, not in their heads. Alas, I am not a doctor.

    Weird that it was first seen in the late 17th century, eh? Especially with the "fibers."

    Seems the National Institute of Health has a number of papers on it-- I hope they get to the bottom of it, as I live in Northern California! (and I know of one potential sufferer, hadn't heard the name of it, but know about the mystery skin condition.)

    Here's a piece of useless information, I saw a TV programme about Morgellons where it was completely debunked, I cannot remember what the programme was called, who presented it or which channel it was on.

    JMO there are lot of very real diseases that are in the head. It's not dichotomous: not in the head, real vs. in the head, not real.

    Here is a somewhat skeptical site about Morgellons:

    (Not MSM, a private blog, and I've just browsed, not read it through.)
