Re: Please help me identify

If you still have it and have taken plenty of pictures of it next to a size gauge, like a tape measure or coin, place it in a clean jar with 70% isopropyl alcohol.

With some specimens, the color changes or it bleaches out the specimens color. With most specimens, it shrinks in size when the 70% isopropyl alcohol is absorbed, from what I have observed.

I use small tall thin pickled garlic jars from the grocery store because I consume lots of pickled garlic with eggs, as in egg salad. I have had great success only at reducing the parasite intestinal load though. This is in addition to odorless garlic supplements.

You should send your picture to your state laboratory to see if they can identify your health concern that may or may not affect others or has or has not effected others. Keep it simple because the laboratory diagnostic staff with credentials cannot technically be your doctor, but it is their job, they have been to school, and they are paid with taxpayer dollars to identify health risk items or rule them out with a reason.

Each state has a state laboratory or access to a state laboratory. Getting an answer, even if it is not a nice one because they infer that it is undigested food, will move you forward through the problematic diagnostic healthcare system.

When you get an answer, share it with the media as I did. Some of them may have parasites and you may inspire a state investigative report. If the state employee infers that it is undigested food, and it isn't, complain to your legislator.

I have not lost custody of most of my specimens. And, one doctor has already erroneously identified some black worms as pinworms and then writing an expensive prescription for Albendazole. That doctor is no longer at that clinic, probably because I argued successfully, although temporarily shaken in disbelief at her diagnosis, after she looked at the jar(s) right in front of her.

I used to present municipal cases in front of Alaska judges. If you have to complain about a medical professional, you need evidence. Please preserve your specimens after taking pictures.

It helps to plan the setting of your pictures like an investigation. Time and date on a sticky note, first sight of specimen with surrounding fecal matter or liquid, size reference, rinsed specimen picture, etc. Again, sometimes the 70% isopropyl alcohol bleaches the color from the specimens and does change the size from what I have observed. For some of my pictures, I used a clear tray with a tape measure underneath where it would not get contaminated. The tray works well for multiple specimens in one picture with one size reference item.

Your state health department should have an online or printable complaint form, legal information as in state laws, and a FAQ. In Alaska, if a complaintant drops their civil case, the medical professional can lose their license to practice medicine.

Your specimen does look concerning. You need an accurate diagnosis. Be well my friend. Make your case.
