Suffering from loose stools, abdominal cramping, severe back pain and anxiety. <br>Could this be due to worm infestation?

A few different times recently I have had 2-5 inch spaghetti shaped things in my stool and just a moment ago i had very lose stool and as having this borderline diarrhea had the poop colored(or maybe just covered) hanging out of me about 4 inches into the water that stayed in one piece when I pushed it out. I did just see small worms in my cats poop. I have had abdominal discomfort and cramping, fairly bad chronic back pain and severe anxiety, depression and forgetfullness which I read is worth mentioning even though may be unrelated. Weight gain mostly in my lower abdomen that looks like a few months pregnant.. Was very scared to see a possible worm hanging out of me and can no longer afford health insurance and coincidentally TODAY is my last day covered!

Hi, Roamingoff,
Thanks for query.
It seems that you might be having Tap worm infestation.
Many a time there might be mix infection of Round worm and pin worm infection as well so go for stool test.
Consult your doctor and go for the treatment accordingly.
Your other problem of having anxiety depression has no relation with present existing problem.
Ok and bye.
