StacyI can't believe how similar your story is to mine! I hope to share more with you soon but for now I have a question about these long stringy worms you have pictured. Do they dry up quickly and look almost like sticks w/ "thorns" on them when dry? I get these of various lengths.

Hi Stacy

Thank you for your comment. I do believe that when worms are passed and dry out they can look stick-like. I've read of others describing the same thing.

I happened to pass quite a large worm and took it to my doctor to have it analysed. It was squidgy when I passed it, almost rubbery in texture, it was brownish in colour. By the time I took it to the doctor in a jar to have it analysed it had dried up and was very stick-like in appearance. When he looked at it, he mentioned tapeworm but to me it didn't have the characteristics for a tapeworm.

My doctor did send it to lab for testing but it came back negative. I was told it wasn't a worm. I actually received a telephone call from my doctor telling me this.

StacyI can't believe how similar your whole story is to mine, it's almost as if I'm reading my own experiences, even the aweful infectious disease specialist! I have coughed up long white & clear wormy things too. Also clear mucus w/ white pearl like globs and flecks of shiny golden colored and brownish sand like things I think are eggs. Before this nightmare went into full swing I had a CT ordered by GI which showed nothing in stomach but multiple granulomas of lung and lymph nodes. Before coughing up this stuff (& seeing worms in stool + many more symptoms) I had asthma symptoms and a horrible feeling like back of my throat was clogged up especially bad in morning! Then started coughing up strange stuff & the clogged feeling lessened considerably. For a long time I thought tapeworms but recently based on what I've seen in BM's & compared it to pics online I believe it's flukes of some sort. Do you know if it's common to have more then one type of parasitic worm? I'm so thankful for your blog. What did you determine yours are/were? If you want you can email me. I'd Love to know where I can send my samples as I'm afraid I will die before a Dr. Diagnoses me. No Dr. will even look @ my samples! I hope & pray your story continues to be a success! THANK YOU!!!

Hi Stacy

I sympathise with you. When my symptoms were extremely aggressive I would cough up copious amounts of this stuff. Within the mucous there would be white blobby stuff and I could sometimes feel tiny, roundish things which felt quite tough in texture. I always thought these were eggs of some kind. I'd always have a cough too, wheezing, tightness in my chest, heart pain and I would experience skipping heart beats. My list of symptoms were endless.

I was one of the first people to have samples tested through rhrplus labs but unforunately they no longer carry out lab tests. I've posted all my micropgraphs and notes which I received after having stool, sputum and urine tested. If you look back in my blog you'll see my posts re: my results and notes etc. There is mention of more than one type of parasite. It's too much for me to go into in this comment. It's all in my blog.

With regards to lab testing, try searching online. Check out the type of tests they do and what they look for.

Have you seen an LLMD?

Normal doctors don't know the first thing about chronic Lyme disease.

Your story sounds remarkably like a chronic Lyme story. Sick since 2003- only gotten worse? Floaters and the other symptoms? My guess is you have Lyme and Bartonella.

Please-even if you have to fly to see one-see an LLMD and get tested through Igenix in California, they are the only accurate lab in the country.

I was tested for it twice at Stanford, negative, then once at Igenix, positive-clear as day.

Now I'm on treatment. They also use the silver you mentioned that helps the floaters-interesting it's helping yours as well.

Anyway, in relation to these stool photos, I passed the same thing. Look at this website and take a look around, anything look familiar?

Hi Louis

Thank you for your comment.

No, I have never seen a LLMD, never. They are so hard to find. Bartonella and Babesia Microti were two things I was diagnosed through after seeing a Kinesiology Practitioner (not too long after I fell ill after exhausting efforts through my own GP). I also saw a SCIO Practitioner too in efforts to try and find out what was going on with my health. It was exhausting! The micrographs and notes I published in my blog are through samples I had tested through RHRPlus lab. (Unfortunately they no longer carry out lab testing).

It sure sounds difficult to get a diagnosis.

The 'silver' you mention I take it you are referring to colloidal silver? I've taken this before.

Thank you for the link re: lyme, yes, I've seen that link before. They're ugly looking things aren't they!

Along with colloidal silver what other stuff have you taken for your lyme? I am in the process of writing some update posts with regards to what other herbs I've taken over the last 2 years and how they have made such a difference to my health and my symptoms. Have you ever taken andrographis, teasel, samento and cats claw with regards to Lyme?

I appreciate you writing me. Thank you.

Comment from: LOK [Visitor]
LOKThis info is exactly what my sister is seeing in the stool, doctors say no it's not worms, tests say it's not worms, so what is it? And if it's not, then why there there typical worm symptoms? Also she has phlegm to spit up once or twice a day (no cough). Also there's clotted bloody nose couple times a month. She's thinking about seeing an internist next since general practitioner, GI doctor and ear/nose specialist do not talk to each other and don't know what it all means. Do you?

Comment from: Jane [Member]

Thank you for your comment. re: my picture, I'm not entirely sure what they are.

When I saw Infectious Disease Specialist, after being referred, he said most stuff found in stool was food matter or the likes.

Re: the blood clotty nose, I'd say that sure needs to be checked out.

rocket bunnyGentlemen and lady's you mite just have yeasts female and Candida man. Check you gentleness and look for small mushroom. That reason you have Candida. If you have this mushroom for over ten years then you mite not have kid.. I was thinking that I have worms then IBS but the I found out that I have yeasts. Which is very mad sickness.... It was driving me mad. And then I went to GUM clinic and showed that tiny mushroom on my genitals. It was the reason to my answer. Now I have long road to recovery. I was ill for 5 years, but I don't worry now. I now know that I have blue blood and know my roots too. thanks. hope did help.

Comment from: Cyndy [Visitor]
CyndyI just passed something exactly like this too. I am not coughing up anything. I do have Celiac disease and IBS. If it isn't a worm then what is it? Traditional doctors don't seem to know much about parasites. I am going to take Black Walnut Wormwood and see if it goes away and if I feel better. This worked before when I suspected parasites.

Comment from: Bluegiraffe [Visitor]
BluegiraffeToday and yesterday I have noticed this in mine too, for the first time. I tried examining one and it looked much like the one in the middle of the first picture. I was thinking it was just undigested vegetable fiber since I've been upping my vegetable intake more, but I'm just not sure. It looked like it had tiny leafy bits along it and on the end, but I'm really concerned. I was surprised when I saw it again today. Any update on what this might be? If I see it again I will take it to my doctor.

Comment from: Jane [Member]
It's hard to say without seeing a picture. I'm even unsure what I passed ie., in my picture.

Digestion and elimination no doubt varies from person to person.

Hard to digest food etc., yes it can be passed in stool. How long after eating something where you would still see it in your stool I'm not sure.
05/10/12 @ 14:01
Comment from: Bluegiraffe [Visitor]
BluegiraffeYes it's weird, I had a couple of days that I didn't see it so I figured it was a once off thing, but I saw it again today. Very weird and unnerving.

LGPI found something like this today. Took a shower this morning and was washing and felt a string-like thing and pulled out a stick-looking thing. Freaked me out! I actually thought a stick had gotten there somehow but after seeing this site, I'm thinking its something like what you guys are seeing. I also had a nosebleed last night and have been dizzy and not seeing as well recently. I had Lyme disease (bullseye spot) a few years ago but took 30 days of an antibiotic and seemed fine but now I wonder...

Comment from: Linda [Visitor]
LindaWake up ladies!
I have been sick, weight gain, my animals have been sick. People say just because I was stressed, asthma, spitting up phlegm like in your previous comments. Noticing every comment you have mentioned with your BMs look every test, went to every doctor, no verdict!
I had a very bad accident a few days ago, I was bitten by a poisonous snake.
Started noticing black spots on me, and diarrhea. The black spots I could remove with tweezers, which were actually worms under my skin, and the diarrhea were actually thin, stick like worms, which I dissected myself.
So pay no attention to what anyone tells you, if you think your sick and God is telling you that there is something wrong with your body, than for Gods sake, check it out. I'm by no means telling you to look for a poisonous snake, but do some research, go back to your doctor, tell him to get off his :censored: and get a second opinion. And a third and a fourth and a fifth and as many as it takes, until you feel that you found the right answer... Do not listen to me I am not a doctor. I just know God helped me find the answer when doctors couldn't.

Comment from: teresa m torres [Visitor] Email
teresa m torresthe test always come up negative.
it is definitely a parasite.
tapeworm perhaps. i had the same thing.
you need to buy
the cleaner & take colloidal silver daily.
read the book the cure for all diseases.
if you would like some help and direction - i can help you understand the herbs you will need and why and how to take them and why colloidal silver is very important to take while cleansing.
the best type of silver to take is mbi colloidal silver 30 ppm. Non-toxic and made the correct way. has it for the lowest price ever.
the cleaner is lower price too.
cs should be take on an empty stomach 3 times daily at the very least.

Hi Teresa

Thank you for your comment.

Tapeworms are segmented, I don't recall what I passed to be segmented. I realise I made the post a long time ago.

My health has improved a great deal, the best I've felt in years.

I've just experienced a recent episode where I coughed up what I believe to be a white worm. I made a post of something similar back in 2009. I will make a new post with the recent picture I took.

Never, did I realise getting rid of these things would take so long.

Comment from: GingaNInja [Visitor]
GingaNInjaHi Jane,

Did you ever find out what it was? I have recently had some illness - 4 years ago I was incredibly sore, fatigued, starting to get dizzy and eventually starting vomitting blood. I was diagnosed with gastritis. It just happened again about 2 months ago - same things, but I clued in to the food quicker. I've now been told I have IBS.

I just noticed something I passed literally looked like string. Elsewhere I read it could be candida overgrowth. Similar to if you had a yeast infection and had discharge - this can be discharge. I am not sure whether to bother going to the doctor with it as I'm already going through food testing and candida is already a suspect.

Just wondering how things panned out with you.

02/21/13 @ 22:11
Comment from: Jane [Member]
You did the right thing going to the doctors with regards to the dizziness and vomiting blood.

IBS. I hate that diagnosis.

I haven't been back to my doctor nor have I had any further tests through my doctor or privately. I'm doing fine.

KarenHello, I am looking for some help for my mother. After countless attempts to find a Physician to accurately diagnose my mother, I searched and found your blog.
Her symptoms have gotten worse from what we believe is a parasite infestation (eww) Her naturalpath has put her on a treatment for parasites and she started to feel moderately better, however after 2 weeks of treatment her abdomen and now the tissue around to her back look like a squishy water bed,
anyone else experience this. Did you get sicker before feeing better. She did an exam of her stool and it showed exactly the same as what I have seen here plus small (pods) or seed like structures

Hi Kitty Vida

You mention side and stomach pains and heavy periods. Does the pain occur only when you are having heavy periods?

Bloody orange stool? I'm unsure what the orange signifies but blood in stool should be checked out. Have you had any tests?

ReneeI passed something like this today.

I ate string beans last night and have been eating a lot more vegetables than usual.

But I lately have been having a lot of circulation issues with my hands, toes and feet. They tend to hurt.

I know I am not always drinking enough water.

No other symptoms though. I have always had bowel troubles (restless colon and such) but this is new.

Comment from: Barbara [Visitor]
BarbaraI had something like this back in Feb. I'd gotten a new microscope and when I had to send in a stool sample (routine, because I have GI issues), I looked at it myself (such a geek!)and what I found looked exactly like what is shown in this picture, only a bit more irregular. My test were apparently Ok, so I thought maybe fibers from the pineapple I'd been eating, or a hair (which does look similar under microscope).

Two days ago I discovered my cats had tapeworms. I got them treated immediately and they will have another round of meds in two weeks, but I'm admittedly a little freaked out as they are always in my face, giving me eskimo kisses (never again),and I caught them a few times on the kitchen counter (ugh). I've scoured the house, but keep thinking about these things I saw back then...and how my nose is always itching and congested, and I have intestinal issues. I'm trying to not be overly worrisome about this, but was out here looking at the worms when I ran across this. It doesn't look like anyone has really found out. I may take another shot of a hair and compare..
