Are you on time-release effexor? Open up the it full of tiny white balls?
More than likely it's the effexor. I had a stomach infection last year, and was sure the tiny white things in the stool were eggs of some kind. I had to take in several samples because of the infection and I couldn't understand why they didn't question the little white balls. Finally, one day I opened one of the effexor capsules and there they were.....hundreds of tiny white balls. Check the effexor before you spend your time and money on needless visits. Hopefully, you'll set your mind at ease. Good luck!
Yes they do. Pinworms, they can look like white threads in stool, crawl out of the rectum at night and lay eggs around the outside of the rectum. This can cause itching and when hands touch them the eggs, which are not visible to the naked eye, can attach themselves to the hands further spreading the infestation. You can get pinworm medicine over the counter in any drug store. Try looking where they sell head lice medicine.
