International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    First I apologise for attaching a picture to this post but needs must!

    I have chronic constipation (currently being investigated but most likely due to SIBO or an autonomic issue)
    I have had two stool tests in the last year that indicated no /parasites/eggs (I have heard that they can be pretty inaccurate though)

    At the moment I have to use enemas, and this horrible parasite looking thing came out today.

    I haven't seen anything like it before I don't think, i have recently started taking a new probiotic that has really helped my overall fatigue levels and was thinking maybe it did something else

    DO you think this is a parasite?

    Not sure why its not letting me attach an image even though I used an image hoster and got the link

    We don't give medical diagnoses on Phoenix Rising. People can guess what it is but the only way you can know for sure is to have it tested in a lab.

    Most intestinal parasites cause diarrhea, not constipation. Plus there are things you eat that can cause odd-looking things to come out the other end. Please discuss with yr. doc.

    If it was a true parasite you would be running a high temp with lots of vomiting.

    Apart from a parasite, it rather looks like mucus and or mucous membrane to me. Tell it to your doctor. Did you get tested for celiac? The thyroid? It can be bacteria as well.
