    Hi there.

    This 100% isn't pinworms. I have no idea what this could be. I would contact your doctor and if they're not available I would join one of the parasites groups on Facebook and ask for their advice as they're useful too.

    ho thanks yes i did think after posting this seems a bit big. i did notice 2 smaller white bits the other day about cm each size not moving reminded me more of maggots the shape and size ve had worms much younger from a public toilet seat but could see them moving both from the faeces and if i remember though this is hazy the rest of the bum too.

    arse is quite itchy now not long woken had a look at my farces yesterday lots of black coffee grind size black specks came out on the toilet paper too.

    stomach been very crampy bloated for ages , with all covid going on and doctors doing it over the phone im self medicating for now will check ky bowels this morning , unplesant experience having to examine 😃 thanks for replying

    Steven this is definitely not pinworms and black coffee ground specks in your stool always need to be investigated. Your symptoms sound like something going on in your bowel, especially your description of being crampy and bloated. Those black specks are a cause for try phoning or emailing your doctor to get a professional opinion.

    did you ever find out what it is and get it taken care of? it seems like whats going on with me and it's horrible but everyone thinks I'm nuts because they don't see it

    I'm not sure but I would say no. Looks a bit large but I don't know the scale. I've had pinworms many times and they are only about half a cm long. they also move and wriggle around it you see them on toilet roll. I can only speak for myself but I get quite intense itching in my butt when I have them. I suffer from constipation quite a lot and the infestations are more common during these episodes. Unfortunately that is the case at the moment. If its worms, expect to feel itching at night.
