Q. how will i know if i have a tape worm in my body?

It's possible you might notice segments of the adult tapeworm (proglottids) in your stool. Other possible signs and symptoms include:

Nausea
Weakness
Loss of appetite
Abdominal pain

Weight loss and inadequate absorption of nutrients from food

If you suspect you have a tapeworm you'll need your doctor to check your stool or send samples to a laboratory for testing. A laboratory may use microscopic identification techniques to check for eggs or tapeworm segments in your feces.
