Symptoms are 6 to 7 bowel movement a day , Tenderness around stomach area feel bloated,gas, nausia,dizziness, headache and weight loss. I went to a doctor prescribed me bandy plus and satronidazole . I feel quite good for 2 to 3 days but symptoms return after that now the drug do not have any effect on the buggs. Went to another doctor tried Tinidazole and one drug for faultulance . but is also gives temporary relief. I live in Delhi now don't know what to do as my doctor is saying that take pain killer for your fevar and take acid blocker for gas problem.

Hello There. I can understand your concern. when was this stool test done and when was the diagnosis established. if it was done 4 months back and still you think after all these medicines you have worm infestation, then you may be wrong. it could be something else. you have loose stools , which could be due to even IBS. kindly consult a gastroenterologist near you for further evaluation and management. BEST REGARDS, Dr. Anil kumar jain.

Your symptoms may be more due to ascariasis.
You can try tab ivermectin 0.2mg/kg orally once.
Also check for liver function tests,serum amylase and lipase.
I suggest you to undergo a endoscopy/colonoscopy.
