This is Dr. David

you can't see worms in your stools

this small thing in your stool is most likely fiber from food you have eaten.

parasites in your bowels would cause watery diarrhea every day until you got treatment.

make sure you chew your nuts well when you eat them.

it doesn't sound like these are parasites in your stool

let me know if you have questions.
