Abdominal discomfort, mucus in stools, weight loss. Cause.

Resolved Question:

I have been having weight loss a good amount. Mucus in stool, anxiety, dizziness, general abdominal discomfort, trouble sleeping and at times racing heart at night that wakes me up. I have submitted a o&p test and am awaiting results. This image was included in a tube to lab but it was in this sealed container for 12 hour prior (not the solution). Is it possible this is a parasite? I have full food journal and only possible salad as mistaken identification. I have had full blood workup including hiv and cancer. I live in North America. I do eat sushi. And I have smoked/roasted 2 pigs personally w friends in backyard.

Thank you for your query at
I understand your concern.
Before I suggest you my opinion, can i have a more detailed medical history from you?
Is there any history of steroid use?
Awaiting your reply,

Patient replied :

The only current steroid use I have is Sybicort 80/4.5.

Thankyou for your follow up.
Fever can be due to numerous causes.
Thirst also can be due to drying of mouth because of cpap unless you are using a humidifier.
To determine the source of your fever, I would suggest you to have a check on your blood counts, urine routine examination sugar check, and chest x ray to have some idea or to rule out anything major.
