Parasitic Infection

Dear Ms. or Sir,
I have a parasitic infection that is not limited to my digestive system.  Having seen a specimen under the microscope, the parasites have long heads with four rows of suction or burrowing mouths going along both sides and the middle of the head, and one on the end.  There is nothing similar to a face or eyes.  The other end is thick and about twice as long, and peristalsis can be observed through the skin.  They come out of my ear canals and the skin of my face (mostly in front of my cheekbones, jaw hinge and nose areas, (usually following a brief but intense blast of pain,) and look like tiny dark blue specks.  
One week on Flagyl reduced the abdominal bloating, swollen liver, and brief sharp pains in my append; tiny blue bubble-like things and a lot of cloudy material came out with my stools during this treatment. Flagyl had no effect on the parasites coming out through my skin.  
Do you know what these are, and how to treat them?  Or a reputable place that would?    
The only tests I have been able to find available here (Ontario) are apparently for parasites that live only in the intestines, diagnosed via the presence of chemical markers to identify the pathogen, rather than viewing stools or other specimens.    
I also have extreme osteoporosis, and had a serious bout of hepatitis a couple of years ago (Hep. A,B,or C, and HIV) all tested negative) and naturally wonder if these could be related.
Thank you.
Sincerely,
Nicky
