Hope someone can help me with this.  Today I passsed something that resembled a cross between beansprouts and (ugh)worms (but not moving).  I have eaten nothing that could resemble this so I am wondering if it was mucus.  Sorry to be graphic  but hoping this is not unusual for someone.  I am currently on Pred and immuno suppresent, waiting to start Remicade and on a low reside/low fibre diet.   Thanks confused

Hi Miss,

I'd head to the doc, describe what you saw and get him to check your stool for parasites. They are common enough and should be ruled out at the very least.

Worms and mucus do not look the same...
