Toe To Head Pain
Dolores Bollapragada, 50ish, had suffered from clinical ergot poisoning
in the past which put her in a coma for several weeks. Ergot is
a grain (especially rye) fungus, very toxic to the liver. Its byproducts
are used in migraine medicine. She had overdosed, somehow.
Perhaps her liver never recovered. It no longer detoxified
solvents for her, allowing them to accumulate in her retina. There
she had propyl alcohol, benzene, carbon tetrachloride acetone,
butyl nitrite, styrene, gasoline, wood alcohol, paradichlorobenzene
(moth balls), pentane, methylene chloride and decane. She
stopped snacking on cold cereal through the day. She had many
habits and products to change. But she was determined to salvage
her sight. She did.
