About psuedoscorpion phoretic and phagophiles infestation #215515

Asked October 04, 2014, 2:21 AM EDT

I am concerned with a large eyed gnat that i interupted bitting me and the flea like entity (nymph) i removed from my neck about 10  days later. I have had some type of bite(2 holes in the middle of of a burning rash on foot) 3 at one instance, and the health issues my doctor is investigating( Chagas) because of the leg swelling,coupled with confirmed Deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary emboli,enlarged lining of esophagus, stomach, clinically diagnosed megacolon, and weight loss. among other issues. 
  I have the  psuedoscorpions samples. i believe they are after mites or fleas on the bedroom floor . Every 2 to 3 weeks my feet look and feel as if they have been bitten( by what i have samples of) very small,1mm, rust colored triatominae. Symptoms included intense foot ache, abrasion and swelling ,vomiting among others. Is there a group that can help to identify, and mitigate? Images will not upload.
