Morgellons disease is not an officially accepted medical diagnosis, so you should do as much research as possible and be prepared to bring up the possibility of the disease with your doctor. There may be another condition causing symptoms like those associated with Morgellons, so make sure you note all your symptoms and when you first discovered them, as well as your medical history and medications or supplements you take. In order to diagnose Morgellons disease, many other conditions need to first be ruled out, so you may want to prepare yourself for several tests.
