starting about a week ago, I've constantly felt as though I was going to vomit at any moment, and while eating/brushing my teeth/sometimes for no reason at all, I'll start gagging.

I've felt a little off for some time, and had my suspicions about what it could be, but around the same time that I felt this nausea, I started seeing these black seed-like things in my stool basically every time I went to the restroom. They aren't hard/solid; they're more like soft, hollow shells

is that sure enough proof that it could be an infection? Is there a possibility of it being something else? I have changed my diet in the same time frame to include more greens, vitamins, less proteins/cholesterol, et cetera, so could that be it?

thanks so much for any assistance

Diet changes maybe, best way to find out is go to your dr & ask for a stool testing kit. Usually infections come with a host of symptoms.

I would go to the doctor. It's probably something you ate, but the fact that you feel sick to your stomach, and you've seen black in your stools is definitely worth investigating.
