Stool Test Negative But I See Worms in Stool!

Edited , 100 users are following.

I'm almost certain I have worms, I just don't know what kind. So I've been having gastro symptoms for over 5 months now. Colonoscopy, blood work and ultrasound all came back normal. My first stool test came back negative 2 weeks ago. Symptoms include pressure/bloating in the belly, burning sensation/heat and diarrhea/constipation, etc. My doctor is pretty useless and isn't even curious to see my pix but here they are what do you guys think? At first I saw small oval off-white objects like rice grains which I suspected to be eggs. Then later on they turned into cone-like shapes with a little strand of hair on the end and darker in color but lately I've been seeing what I think are the actual worms with bigger and longer stringy bodies in my stool. I'm sorry these pix are quite disgusting but I just want to get some feedback. These are definitely parasites right?! imageimageimageimage

Thanks so much!

Tim

      I don't have head symptoms and hopefully I'm able to get rid of these worms before it comes to that but almost on a daily basis I've been experiencing discomfort in the belly for 5 months and it's not fun!

    Put your evidence in a small lab bottle and get your doctor to check it out, thats what the doctors are paid for.

      She wont look at it, everything has to go through the lab. I had mentioned to her I have photos and she hasnt even expressed any interest in see the photos. I'm about to turn in a second stool test and if it comes back negative again I will find another specialist. My current specialist has been pretty useless as you can see.

    What about doctors on line, but not just where you live.

    You could try the U.S or other Parasite centers, because you have photos it might be easier for them to identify what you have.

      im very new to this forum! I didnt even know there were parasite centers or online doctors that I can share my photos with. Do you know of any specific online doctors and/or parasite centers that you can recommend?

      THANKS!

      The following is what I've found for you.

      The first one i came across is called, worms in humans-NHS a lot of good information to help you.

      The second one is a web site in the USA called, CDC-Parasite Resources Diagnosis.

      The Center for Disease Control and Prevention, on their Contact Us page they have information about how and what to do next.

      Let me know if this is any help.

      hey dan, I am in toronto, let me know what u find and how you go about it. i am narrowing down my problems to parasites of some sort of virus and have very abnormal stoool fo 5 months. I currently have problems everywhere which has gone to my brain, and have to do everything on my own because health care system isnt to good here. One same stool tests are useless, i was going to maybe use my money to get a pathologist to do it.

      Ok I will try to contact these places and keep you updated. Here's a photo of these little white seed-like objects I keep seeing in my stool. They are about 1/8" diameter and feel hard but I can pop them and become like shells with nothing in them after I pop them. They have a slightly sharp end to them. I'm pretty certain they are not food because nothing I've eaten resembles these seeds. image

      I have been passing the long rope like things for a while but just literally tonight, I passed a load of them in one go + one of them weird white "pods". I really don't know what to think.... I have looked at photos like this before and then concluded it's just food or something but your photos look identical to what I passed tonight.

      I know it's been 7 months ago since this post and you may have found the answer.

      Almost 10 years of parasite searching I would say they are segments of tapeworm or tapeworm eggs.

      Haven't found a definition for my pests but think I have a least 3 different ones. Felt the best on Vermox but Dr won't give me a stronger dose. You're kind of on your own unfortunately when it comes to this. Most doctors I've seen, 2 ENTs (tiny black things coming out, she said it was wax 😃 2 dermotologists, no answers. Said stop scratching... 2-3 regular doctors- I have dilusional parasititis.

      So you learn to keep very quiet...

      I have them in my eyes now, affecting vision so that it scary but won't even venture to mention to new optometrist.

      Ironically my psychiaritist believes me 😃

      Best of luck on this frustrating journey, usually alone as family think I'm coo-coo mama, doctors are no help, lab tests on stool show negative most of the time.

      im going through all the same with drs and family or friends or whatever you want to call everyone...i was quiet for a while and then finally stirred up enough courage to ask for help....but even the people who i thought would be there no question about it, have categorized and sized me up into a dismissive category that is absolutely hurtful...so then it went from wanting help to becoming frustrated and then i was way too open to anyone who would listen...pushing people to see and feel and know exactly what im going through. getting upset because i dont understand how they cant see as clearly as i do that there is something seriously f*****g off goingtrying to find a middle where i can try to live as normally as possible...but its unforunately gone back to introverting and keeping everything to myself....i have never been so dismissed by everyone in my life...ive been going through it for about a year now.. cant imagine over 10 like you...this has taken pretty much everyone away from me and its a unfortunate experience that even if i was to ever get better, the devastation has changed me and ive never felt so lost. sorry that was super debbie downer....
