20 Hours of Sleep a Day

After close to a year of unexplained illness, Medix intervened to provide a simple and easy fix. Mr Bradley: "I haven't felt this well in 20 years"

Mr Bradley's (40) work, which includes operating heavy machinery, often takes him overseas to Western Africa.
 
During one of his work trips, he started feeling weak, feverish and joint pain. He turned to a local hospital, which carried out some tests and prescribed an anti-parasite drug called Albendazole.
The drug had no apparent effect on his condition and therefore Mr Bradley returned to the UK with the hopes of receiving better quality care.
 
Once at home, Mr Bradley consulted with a rheumatologist who advised that he was suffering from a sensitive reaction to a parasitic infection and was prescribed a course of steroids. This treatment seemingly worked, however testing for parasites were negative and no specific parasite was identified.
 
With the brunt of his symptoms resolving, he returned to Africa to continue his routine. 
 
The success of his treatment, however, was short lived. Not long after his return all of his symptoms relapsed with the addition of harsh cough. 
 
Hospitalised again, Mr Bradley was diagnosed with pneumonia, treated with 3 kinds of antibiotics and another course of Albendazole. Recovery was elusive and the local doctors were at a loss.
 
Returning again to England, his condition continued to worsen. Mr Bradley was feeling weaker and more feverish than ever. His condition left him bed ridden, sleeping up to 20 hours a day! 
At this point an AXA PPP International representative spoke to Mr Bradley and recommended that he use Medix.
 
Almost a year since the initial onset of symptoms, the Medix Case Manager concluded that something must have been overlooked. All the existing information and test results were reviewed and the entire case was sent to a Medix infectious disease specialist.
 
The Medix consultant looking at the case realised that a parasitic presence originating in the intestines may indeed be the culprit. The symptoms had started in Africa, and previous history of diarrhea was consistent with this assumption. 
 
The two obstacles left to be overcome were the fact that the parasite testing was negative and that Mr Bradley had already been treated with an anti-parasite drug. 
 
The first problem was put to rest, seeing as the specialist recognised that the kind of test used so far is notoriously inconclusive, raising the probability that a false negative result had occurred. 
 
Given the previous treatment, the logical conclusion was that Mr Bradley was suffering from a parasite with resistance to Albendazole, the previous drug of choice. The leading candidate was Strongyloides, a specific kind of parasite also known as threadworm. The most common ways to get it is by drinking infected water or undercooked meat. 
 
Now with a concrete diagnosis in hand, Medix discussed the case with Mr Bradley's local treating team. After hearing the specialist's opinion, a 7 day course of treatment was planned using a drug that is better suited to treat the condition.
 
After receiving the new drug, Mr Bradley's symptoms started to diminish and eventually completely disappeared allowing him to fully return to work. When asked, Mr Bradley said that he "hasn't felt this well in 20 years".
