The chances of getting struck by lightening are more than getting this,in a population.
Quit worrying and get your tension headache treated! Do consult your doc.
Thank you, I'm glad to know the chances are slim. I'm still worried because I don't usually get headaches and this has been constant pain on my head and face pain and feeling foggy with an overall feeling of being out of it.
Guess that is what tension head ache is all about! Cheers!
I have read this from a site after also being worried about myself having it. 'Males are affected 3 times more frequently than females,15 probably reflecting a greater exposure risk rather than a true gender predisposition to infection. The probability of contracting Naegleria, once exposed to it, is estimated at 1 in 100 million exposures (Dr. Steve Tidwell, Texas Natural Resources and Conservation Commission Faculty, Austin, Tex.: personal communication, 1995 Aug 10). Once contracted, PAM is almost uniformly fatal, with only 10 survivors currently reported in the medical literature.8,16-24 One French study25 extrapolated the risk of contracting PAM after swimming once in water containing an ameba concentration of 10 per liter as being approximately 8.5 ×10-8.'
Pretty much, even if you had contact with Naegleria Fowleri in your nose, the chances of actually getting the disease (Primary Amoebic Meningloencephalitis) is 1 in 100 million. That made me worry a bit less, so maybe it will help you too.
maybe another kind of parasite?
