Morgellons disease is the popular name for an unexplained skin disorder characterized by disfiguring sores and crawling sensations on and under the skin. Morgellons disease also features fibers or solid materials emerging from these sores.<br />
<br />
Researchers with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have concluded that Morgellons disease, which they refer to as an unexplained dermopathy, isn't caused by an infection or parasites. Fibers found in the sores are usually wisps of cotton thread, probably coming from clothing or bandages.<br />
<br />
CDC experts note that the signs and symptoms of Morgellons disease are very similar to those of a mental illness involving false beliefs about infestation by parasites (delusional parasitosis).<br />
<br />
What are the signs and symptoms of Morgellons disease?<br />
People who have Morgellons disease report the following signs and symptoms:<br />
<br />
Skin rashes or sores that can cause intense itching<br />
Crawling sensations on and under the skin, often compared to insects moving, stinging or biting<br />
Fibers, threads or black stringy material in and on the skin<br />
Severe fatigue<br />
Difficulty concentrating<br />
Short-term memory loss<br />
The intense itching and open sores associated with Morgellons disease can severely interfere with a person's quality of life.

Well, i don't know someone who specifically told me they had it. But, for me, i have most of those symptoms, and well, i can't say that i have it, because i already have severe schizophrenia, i have some of the symptoms that don't associate with schizophrenia for example like: (Severe fatigue, The intense itching and stuff.) But, no i'm sorry :( i don't know someone who has it..
