Signs or Symptoms of Ascariasis:
Ascaris Infection: DPD (Excerpt)
Most people have no
symptoms. If you are heavily infected, you may have abdominal pain.
Sometimes, while the immature worms migrate through the lungs, you may
cough and have difficulty breathing. If you have a very heavy worm
infection, your intestines may become blocked. (Source: excerpt from Ascaris Infection: DPD)
Parasitic Roundworm Diseases, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID (Excerpt)
A few worms in the intestine
may cause no symptoms or may give rise only to vague or intermittent
abdominal pain. Heavy infection may cause partial or complete
blockage of the intestine resulting in severe abdominal pain,
vomiting, restlessness, and disturbed sleep. The heavier or greater
the worm infection, the more severe the symptoms are likely to be.
Occasionally, the first sign of infection may be the presence of a
worm in vomit or in the stool. (Source: excerpt from Parasitic Roundworm Diseases, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID)
