Parasites or worms?

For the past 5 nights I have been experiencing night sweats, diarhea (diarrhea), lack of appetite, and weakness. The sweats only happen at night and then are followed by chills. I do not have a temperature and would like to go back to normal asap... I've been reading about parasites that could cause the same symptoms.If I do have a worm or parasite will it come out in my bowel movements? I've seen some stringy brown segments but do not want to jump to any conclusions. Is this a possibility? How do I get rid of this?

Welcome to the gastroenterology community!  I would recommend seeing a doctor about this.  It would be a bad idea to treat for worms or parasites without first knowing if you truly have them.  I think you need stool testing and also blood testing to determine what is wrong.
