Found (looks to be less about a centimeter) stringy white thing
I'm a 20 year old female who is experiencing a plethora of symptoms... Abdominal pain, esp on lower right side near the gallbladder area, constant gas (burping, farting) significant weight loss, headaches, nauseous, persistent fever of about 99.7, constant fatigue. I had to go to the ER the pain had gotten so severe. I had an ear infection and sinus infection about two months ago and it has come back again, so I'm experiencing frequent infections. When I eat I can barely finish a meal and right after I am burping and my stomach is not happy. The ER physician I saw, I had suggested to him that I thought I had a intestinal parasite of some sorts because of the symptoms I am experiencing to which he asked if I had been out of the country and I haven't so he said no, and said I had flank muscular pain... >.< Flank pain is supposedly a symptom itself... so that doesn't really help me at all. I then went to an immediate care who told me I have an ear infection, sinus and throat. I had told him I was worried it was a intestinal parasite and basically got the same treatment as I did the ER physician. Right now I am scared and I want to get this solved. My sister thinks I'm stupid for thinking it's an intestinal parasite but I have been checking my stool and have found super small, white stringy things in my stool. I just need to hear from feedback from people who have had an intestinal parasite or a professional who deals with this sort of stuff. Please and thanks ^_^

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possible causes that may need to be considered include GI/ GU infections/ inflammations, GI spasms, GB related issues, causes related to the respiratory tract or chest/ abdominal wall, systemic issues such as infections/ inflammations, hematological causes, hormonal/ endocrine issues, micronutrient deficiencies, stress/ anxiety, neuro-muscular causes, a few auto-immune conditions etc. Unfortunately, without a definite diagnosis at hand it would be difficult to suggest a specific management plan. I would suggest getting this evaluated in detail by an internist initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.  
  
Take care!
