Our expert says:
There is such a wide range range of parasites that can cause infections in humans. The symptoms are not always spesific of a parasitic infection. I would however, suggest that you consult a gastroenterologist for a gastroscopy and colonoscopy, as your symptoms might be due to gastric irritation or a gastric ulcer.
Please refer to the following link for general information about parasitic disease: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parasitic_infection
Follow the link to human parasitic infection. You will note that there are a multitude of different parasitic infections and each one are treated differently and will have to be investigated by a doctor to make the correct diagnosis and to prescribe the correct treatment.
Note that parasitic infections are contagious.
