Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

With these symptoms, especially the unusual headaches you should have imaging studies of the brain. Also, a stool examination to look for the parasite or its egg is definitely required. With treatment after diagnosis, you will feel better and all your symptoms will resolve.

Take care.
