Can An Infection Due To Tape Worm Cause Watery Stools?

I am an RN, so I'm a bit worried. This is the 5th day I have felt "sick", and my daughter and husband are starting to feel the same way. I've had 3-4 loose watery stools per day, and a rumbley stomachache. I feel weaker too. I'm able to eat and drink. I have mainly eaten toast, bananas, crackers, drinking water and juice. I have had a little nausea at times. We moved to Texas, and into an older home. We have treated for roaches consistently, and have seen a few only. But 2 nights ago saw one in our silverware drawer!!! We got a treatment again. Could it be an issue, or tapeworm or a long lasting virus? Thank you, XXXX
