Hi, I found a worm thing that looked just like a maggot in my butt checks as I was showering. I took it to dr and they said lab came back as it was nothing. I googled worm that looked like rice or maggot and found that it looked just like a Tapeworm segment, which are passed every so often. I googled meds to kill Tapeworm and found praziquantel. I purchased some from farm supply and a little over a day later passed a strand of poop. Looked like brown segments on a thread. Also pooped pile of them all squished together. Took poop to dr and they said it was a worm, but then visual lab test came back and said no. I am sure it is tapeworm. I have been very sick for a long time and stomach swelling has already went down. I am worried that I may have worms in other areas besides intestine though and every doctor says it is impossible to have Tapeworm unless you have traveled overseas. Anyone have any similar experience or advice. I am having weird sensations an pain in back and burning joints allover. I just want to feel better and tired of being treated like I am crazy.
