Ep. 6: Morgellons – Part 2

We continue our discussion of Morgellons disease with an extremely itchy discussion not for the faint of heart.  After learning about itch nerves and the dangers of scratching, J. J. postulates a theory about Morgellons, itch disorders, and what they may have in common with Fibromyalgia.  We finish with discussion of other diseases such as Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.
