So you're saying you threw it away? I'm not telling you to keep it in the freezer at work, you could have put it in your pocket til you got home. But if you throw it out, you have nothing to show the doctor. It's just your word that you found something weird, and you won't even be able to answer the questions he'll ask about it.

then you mean, while working at Burger King, you pulled out your gloves and sifted through your poop? Then logged onto the internet to post this? How is that possible?

got off the phone with one of the lab techs at my doctors office, i told them what it looked like since i dont have a sample and she said she is like 100% sure its a ringworm, because of the fact that it is orange, hard, and really looks like a worm. They still want me to try and get a sample if another one comes out but she is almost positive thats what it is, since i always chew my food nothing could come out like that

do you mean roundworm or pinworm?

Ringworm is actually a fungus that cause a skin infection and the lesion is ring shaped.

Pinworms are more common than you think.

yeah it is icky to think about - they could probably diagnose the type of worm by you bringing in a stool sample rather than have you wait for one to "show up". That's how we do it in dogs/cats/horses - the stool will have eggs in it and eggs are distinctive to the type of worm(sorry another gross thing) but the sooner you are treated - the sooner they are gone and you will feel better too.

yeah they had me send up a sample yesterday will get results back on monday, I know this sounds sick but i really am hoping its worms, i meen thats the less evil of the things the doctor thinksi may have

chrons disease,colon cancer, ulceritive colitis....

so im rooting for the worms. hes almost convinced though that i have a form of colitis thats why he orderd the sampls to begine with.. now i thought colitis was chrons and ulceritive, is there another type thats not as bad as those? i thought u couldnt test for that with stools

oh and my stools definatly have something like eggs in them there these white things that look like rice, but i have not aten rice for a while, besides for lumbarg ricechips but i chew the crap out of those before i swallow

Worms are easy to get (you can get them just by sitting on the ground) and easy to treat. I hope, for your sake, that it is worms, so you can get treated and be done with it. :)B):)

yeah no crap, and if it is worms and all of these treatments and dieats are for no reason, Never fear i will not leave this forum, i have learned to much these past 3 weeks to not keep other newbies informed. I feel like im almost a walking dictonary of things around celiac lol. I just mine for information and keep growing and growing in knowlage, now only if i knew how to spell worth crap

I took a parasite cleanse a year ago and the following day alongside my stool was a long white worm looking thing. It was totally seperate from my stool. It looked like it could be a worm...I did "inspect" it but I couldnt figure it out. I had several stool tests for parasites since then but all were negative...its still a mystery to me.

did you take it to your doctor?

(this gets kinda personel but i figure we all share everything with eachother so hope i dont go to far)

i am definatly matching symptoms for worms. i have a constant itching bum,- but the only diffrence is that when its itchy i always go and wipe and there is always some streakege, like i constantly leak all day long i can almost always wipe and get a little something, i know its not because i left something since i am as i said before highly exessive compolsive to the point of where i never stop wiping when i go to the bathroom until either A. i can absoultly not get anything else or B. i start bleeding because i have wiped to much. i have had this problem for over a year now though, besides for the ammount that itch has gotten worse

Here's some info about the connection between gluten intolerance and parasites:

PARASITES

The structural changes to the environment of the small intestine from gluten intolerance create the perfect habitat for development of pathogenic infections. Inflammation in the small intestine causes a structure called the crypts of Liberkuhn to deepen. The elongating of these crypts, referred to as crypt hyperplasia and deepening of the crypts, makes for a deep pocket where a pathogen such as a parasite can survive by evading the usual immune surveillance that occurs in the lining tissue. Inflammation also slowly destroys the immune cells that help protect this area and these two factors taken together create a situation where parasite infections can take hold and become chronic. Parasites deeply embedded in the intestinal lining can even be resistant to powerful antibiotic treatments.

Because of this, people with gluten intolerance need to rule out the possibility that they are harboring a chronic parasitic infection. Eliminating gluten from their diet can be the first step in getting these chronic infections cleared.

Yup...thats true.

My doctor has drilled this into my head for the past 5 months. He said most people with gluten intolerance get these infections. He says they find them all the time. But so far....none have been found in me. I'm taking another test now so we'll see if anything shows up.

Lister,

As far as the personal stuff...I think I know what you're talking about. Its not a constant thing with me but it does happen from time to time and I know its nothing that ever happened to me before I got sick. Yeah...you can wipe and wipe and theres still something there...even when you didnt even have a bowel movement. I've had this happen to me...it will last a few days and then get better though. It usually happens if I'm feeling really bad reactions from something I ate. I dont have alot of itching but that happens on occassion too...I figure its normal since its not constant or bothersome. I think I had itchy days back when I was healthy too...and I'm a really clean person.

:ph34r: Too bad we couldnt remove our avatars just for certain posts. :P

Oh yeah...I did try to take my "sample" in to my doctor but he didnt want to see it (can you blame him)...he told me to take it to the lab. The lab said they couldnt test it since I hadnt kept it in the freezer. It was the same day but whatever.

Yea guys, that happens to me too :ph34r: ! I know now that it only happens when I eat something I"m intolerant to. I have spent the last several months going back and forth testing myself and I *think* I have finally narrowed the list to what is in my signature. Only time will tell, though :blink:

The inflammation could be a gluten reaction, in some places they use a suppository and biopsy of the rectal tissue for celiac diagnosis because of this. This inflammation is also why so many of us have hemmies. Hopefully if there is anything to find the doctor will let you know soon.

yeah i sure hope so my stomic is finally not hurting nearly as often ( i have been keeping food in it like im acually eating 3 meals a day and my stomic pains have gone away) just need to battle the brain fog. But lately my left bicep hurts to tuch and i cant extend my arm(its like the sore you get when u have the flue) and now my left chest hurts to tuch as well :( i cant everfigure out whats wrong with me...

and to top all of this off one of my co-workers acually one of my boss's has the bird flue-- or so she says, i would think it would be in the paper though

My SIL did a cleanse a while back and also had a worm come out--freaked her out a bit. Would me too! They are henious things! I had pin worms when I was a little kid...miserable. It's completely disgusting, but I could feel them! :o
