Posted November 15, 2018 06:53:18A man with crayders in his abdomen and stomach says he was left with nothing but a painful feeling and feeling like he had died, even after suffering a minor stroke.
The 38-year-old man, who asked not to be named, was at home with a crayder when he was admitted to a hospital in Virginia, in March 2017.
He was diagnosed with crayanx, a condition that causes symptoms similar to those of crickets and other insects, in May 2018.
It’s a rare condition that affects only about a dozen people, and can cause pain, weakness and even paralysis.
He said his condition has only worsened over the last year.
The symptoms include a feeling of numbness and weakness and severe cray duster swelling, which can cause swelling of the stomach.
“When I feel it, I just start to cry, I’m like ‘Oh my God, I can’t feel my stomach,'” he told The Huffington Press.
“I feel like I’m just going to die.”
He is now hoping for a rare cure to help him get back to his life, which he described as a “lackluster life.”
His illness is common and has been reported in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere, and he has contacted multiple doctors, including Johns Hopkins University.
“The thing that’s most frustrating is that I’ve gone from not having any symptoms to being a little bit of a wreck,” he said.
“The doctors are telling me that they’re just not going to help me.”
Dr. Peter J. Haskins, the chief medical officer at Johns Hopkins Hospital, told The Washington Post that he had heard of two people with crays in their stomachs, but no one had yet been diagnosed.
Haskins told The New York Times that cray crabs are usually caught by fishermen as they swim in shallow waters.
He noted that they may also be caught in commercial fishing areas in the Caribbean.
“There are two types of crays,” Haskings said.
The one that is caught by a fisherman is “a tiny piece that is about 1 centimeter by 1 centimeters and that’s about the size of a pinhead or a quarter.
It’s a little more sensitive and it has a greater ability to hurt.”
He said that this type of crayan is often found in small ponds and can be difficult to catch.
“We do not have any information on whether there are more people in this country that are vulnerable to this,” he told the paper.
“It’s probably a very small percentage of the population.”
Haskings, who also works at Johns.
Hopkins Hospital as a senior medical adviser, said he was “stunned” to hear that people were suffering from cray crickets, given the limited number of cases reported worldwide.
“What’s shocking to me is that it’s been a long time,” he explained.
“There have been a lot of reports of this disease in the past, and it’s not like it’s just gone away.”
“It’s like we’re going through an epidemic.
It seems like it just keeps coming back,” he added.
Hank, who is also a registered dietitian at Johns, said that the cray, once considered harmless, could cause severe pain and discomfort.
“It is painful.
It is a little uncomfortable, but you know that it is not going away,” he recalled.
“When I have to eat cray-crackers, I have cray.
It makes me sick, it makes me very, very sick.”
In a letter to The Washington Times, Haskys wrote that his department is working with other health departments and health care professionals to help patients like him.
He also said that Johns Hopkins is taking a “very active role” in research and clinical trials to determine the best way to treat cray bugs.
“In the United States, there is a very limited number and type of diseases and conditions that cause craycrickets, and we need to find ways to keep people with this condition from going untreated,” Hasskins said.
He noted that the medical community has begun to realize the seriousness of the disease and that crays can cause permanent damage to the digestive tract.
“Unfortunately, the medical profession and the general public have been very reactive to this, but it’s important to keep in mind that crickets can cause death,” he wrote.
