1 1/2 month ago I had a long yarn type string come out in my feces. My stomach was swollen out up by my rib cage, I was in pain and a mess. I went to the Dr and he gave me one pill of praziquantel. taken all at once with food.The next night I was at the emergency room thinking I was having a heart attack and the swelling was way worse and making god awful noises. They ran a CT scan on my stomach and it came back showing NOTHING. yet they drugged me up for the pain and sent me on my way. I then went to my Dr and he put me on Omeprazole 1 daily. told me to only eat soup and water, no caffeine and soda. for which I did. I have totally cut out the soda and caffeine or a month now and I take the Omeprazole 1 daily. My stomach still has this fullness and I cant eat or I feel this pressure in my chest and a squeeze in my arm (left side) so I went back in yesterday to the Drs because nothing is getting better, I still can barely get soup down, Ive lost 15 pounds and I am concerned about the heart pain and arm squeezing feeling. He did a 30 second EKG, he told me my heart is fine. I told him I am really worn out by this, tired and sometimes I feel like im going to faint, everything gets dark. I have diarrhea,stomach pain, weakness, headaches, neck pain,and when I eat or even drink water my stomach bloats out so I'm afraid to eat. I asked him if I could still have any parasites and he assured me that the pill would have killed everything. Now he wants me to take xanax, for stress and depression! "He acted like I was just trying to get attention when I hardly ever go to the dr unless it's serious and this is very scary because of the pain and stuff I was afraid , He was dismissive and told me to come back in two months." He also said keep checking my bowel movements, so Today I see a six inch brownish clear round yarn type thing. is this stomach lining? I don't even want to go back to him because he's young and very demeaning and dismissive to me! I am still in pain, my stomach is still swollen and I feel pain under my left breast.
