Customer Question

I was trying to get answers on parasitic worms.
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: I have been trying to get help since May last year. I keep being given inadequate tests, and no tests, told it is mental and today prescribed a drug test is not even available
JA: Is this a time sensitive issue? What type of specimen are they testing?
Customer: *prescribed a drug that is not available. I have done research and talked to several and found there is a protocol here to misdiagnose and simply refuse to treat people
JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.
Customer: As I said it has gone on for way over a year and now I can feel it all over. Today the gi Dr said he wouldn't prescribe anything because he is not the right Dr. An infectious disease Dr is not even reachable and It seems there are only two per state average
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: not that is relevant to this

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 9 months ago.

What are your symptoms?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Huge stomach in one year, started out as feeling like small snakes in uterus. Ultrasound done which would not even shoe that. Feelings got bigger, and overcrowded feeling in abdomen. Told it's not possible to have snake in abdomen. Eating curbed to nothing because of feeling stomach and abdomen is full. Feelings of something trying to come out of cervix and bowel. Movements throughout abdomen. Colonia copy last year showed nothing but Dr did not reveal he could not see the whole colon. Extreme feelings if worms throughout bowel, bladder and impacted feelings of something throughout pelvis. Worms in feces. Blood in feces.
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 9 months ago.

Did your feces (stool test) reveal parasites?

Was an anoscopy or colonoscopy done?

Did they do a CT scan?

What is your age?

Are your periods normal?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Cannot do call. I see you are a sports medicine doctor. Is there a parasitology or similar type? I saw gi today and he would not give meds referring to infectious disease doctor. Went to urgent care got prescription for med no longer available.
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 9 months ago.

I am a general surgeon, which is my primary specialty.

Sports medicine is my second specialty?

If you wish, I can opt out.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Feces show worms and blood. Colonia copy last year and other scans are useless. Doctor will not comment in the things I am complaining about. I am finding there seems to be a widespread maltreatment of this. post menopausal.
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 9 months ago.

I am opting out. An another expert on the site may be able to help you.
