Do I have worms (or some other parasite)?

For the past 2 and a half years I've almost daily digestive problems: severe gas, bloating, pain, nausea, diarrhea, foamy mucousy discharge. I've been tested for celiac disease and that came back negative, I've tried eliminating various foods that are common causes of food sensitivities: corn, wheat, gluten, soy, dairy and I never got any relief. My Dr. says I have IBS which sounds to me like he doesn't know what is wrong with me, but it isn't really that bad. I was about to just accept that I will never feel right again, but a couple of weeks ago I noticed a couple of small white balls in my crap. At first I didn't think much of it, but this has happened several times since and I'm starting to wonder if I have some parasite or worms. I can't think of anything that I would have eaten that would come out as little white balls. I've never seen anything moving in my waste or anything that looks like a worm. I've also been very very tired for quite a while. Has anyone else been diagnosed with any type of intestinal parasite or experienced anything like what I described? I think my doctor already thinks I'm crazy, so I don't want to have another pointless visit.

  • Hi There is only one way to really know for sure, and that's to get tested. It will depend on what, (if any), parasites you have. Tests can be very inaccurate. I have a lot of the symptoms you describe (and more), and I'm suffering from numerous parasites. I also have fungal, bacterial and mold problems too. I've read that these go hand in hand with parasite infections. It would be an idea to perhaps look at your diet too. Don't eat processed foods, it only encourages parasites. Drink plenty of water. Parasites create toxins and it can be the toxins that make you feel ill. With regards to parasite cleansing, there are many products out there but I would recommend that you google and read some reviews on some of the products. You could seek alternative advice by seeing a practitioner who perhaps knows about parasites and may be able to give you advice on your symptoms. Many doctors don't recognise the symptoms and it can be a hard job getting through to them. It's been my experience. If you are thinking of being tested, discuss with your doctor, and ask about how accurate they are, ask what parasites they test for also. I've read lots about parasites due to my situation and in my opinion many symptoms can be mistaken for something else. Best of luck.
