When STD symptoms occur, they may include the following:
- Abdominal pain
- Chronic fatigue
- Feeling tired
- Gas or bloating – aggravated by the consumption of hard to digest foods such as beans and non-organic meats
- IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) – muscle spasms, intestinal blockage, and a mal-absorption of nutrients. Fatty substances in particular can be difficult to digest
- Immune dysfunction
- Joint and muscle aches
- Loose, watery stools sometimes containing blood and mucus
- Passing a worm in your stool
- Rash or itching around the rectum or vulva
- Skin conditions – hives, rashes, weeping eczema, ulcers, swelling, sores, lesions, or dermatitis
- Sleep disorders
- Stomach pain or tenderness
- Teeth grinding
- Weight loss
Over half of all people will be infected with an intestinal parasite at some point in their lives.
Yet, many do not recognize the signs and symptoms of a parasite infection because they can occur weeks or even years after the initial infection, and because a parasitic infection often mimics other similar conditions.
