Hello, ascariasis (round worm infestation) it is pretty common in India (about 10% are having), so nothing to worry about it. Yes you have taken correct treatment for the infestation (that is mebendazole, albendazole, others like secnidazole, ivermectin). Other causes for your symptoms would be gram negative bacterial infection (complication of ascariasis), or Inflammatory bowel disease, anemia (very low hemoglobin), gastritis. Don't worry all be treated, please consult a general surgeon.
