Becca asks:

When I take a poop there are these little off-white round things that I see on the paper as well as in the toilet. What could this be? I have had this for over a month.





Dear Becca,

Let's look at this logically, shall we?

Anytime one has little white things coming out of one's butt and one is sure that it isn't just cheap toilet paper balls, one should go to the doctor (preferably with the aforementioned little white things in a jar) LONG befoe writing to a website devoted to humorous poop stories.

But, that's just my opinion. Go get it checked out.

Thanks for asking Poonurse!

Okay ... yes, I take Effexor XR and I am having the same white balls in my poop just like all the other Effexor XR people. I have also been having other symptoms however ... itchy butt/itchy genital region ... do not have any genital infections/diseases, however. Alternating diarrhea/constipation as well ... so, I went to my PCP and had testing done ... a CAT scan of abdominal/pelvic region w/contrast ... am also awaiting results for a complete check on a stool sample. I will post my results of the tests along w/my results of the "mysterious ... but most-likely due to use of Effexor XR white balls in poop saga". This problem has been going on for a few months now ... started w/ the intense itching below and mild nausea/bowel confusion and unexplained dizzy spells. I know this is a "funny" website, but this problem is no laughing matter. It has seriously affected my total well-being and family life. Again, I will post my results when I find out ... just so I can possibly help some people out. When the issue of intestinal parasites or worms are involved, it's very embarrassing and humiliating ... but a very common problem I am finding out. Stay tuned ... confirmed medical test results to follow in a few days. In the meantime if anyone has any thing to add to this, please let me know.

I know this was years ago but I noticed that of the things you do eat most are things that I am allergic to. Have you checked for food allergies?

I found this while searching for information on tiny white balls in stool. Probably remains of the spansules in Effexor XR capsules.

i have white stuff on my bottom what is it?

Anonymous's picture

I noticed I had LWB in my poop like in September, told my mom and she didn't care. It only happened one time and I have never seen the balls again. However, my dog did have giardia and I am still afraid i got it from her. The week after I discovered the white balls I had on and off diarrhea that went away in about 5 days. But this past week my digestion has been off. Tuesday and Wednesday I had not apetite and on Friday I ate, but immediately after I felt super full and bloated, and I am still bloated today with mild constipation.

I am so scared! Is this parasites? And how do i get to the doctor if my mom won't drive me?

i'm having the same problem with little round white balls the size of a seasame seed...show up when i have the runs I feel very fatigued can not find a real photo of parasites that have eggs this visable,,,some think it is from medication that comes from capsules but I have been taking these for years so I don't buy it...does anyone know which human parasites expell eggs large enough for the human eye to see? Why is it so hard to find photos?

you might have tapeworm.

I also have been on effexor xr 150mg for many yrs. Never saw little white orbs in my stool until aboout a year ago when I started having diarrhea. Diagnosed with Crohn's Disease 8 months ago. Got heavy artillery treatment. Diarrhea got better & no more little white orbs in stool until Prednisone was decreased and had to put temporary hold on Humira injections due to infections. Now diarrhea, cramping and extreme fatigue are back, as well as the litle white orbs. Also, enteric coated potassium sometimes comes through whole. All I can figure is stuff is moving through colon faster than can be properly absorbed due to Crohn's Disease. Get a colonoscopy!

Sorry denise but most parasite cleanses are a scam to separate people from their hard earned money. MDs are highly trained professionals and are to be trusted much more than a return to medieval practices that are often ineffective and end up doing more harm than good. Notice that most sites hawking parasite cleanses will have a disclaimer that casts doubt on their effectiveness. There is not much sense having a family physician if you aren't going to take his advice. Many parasitic infections can be cured by prescription drugs only and can be quite harmful to your body if left untreated or treated in a totally ineffective way.

I would advise anyone with a suspected parasitic infection to check out the URL listed below and then seek professional help from your physician.

For all of you, I have been battling a parasite for almost 6 months now, they do exist. It started out with bad abdominal pain then I started seeing white worms in my stool but these things usually don't show up on a stool test and many MDs don't know how to treat parasite infections. There's over 1000 different types. The best thing to do is a parasite cleanse. It will rid some parasites. As for me my pain goes on but I hope soon I'll be better. If you have any questions you can email me at deniseblonde29@yahoo.com, I can answer your questions as I've been through this.

Just to say thank you to all you good folks who have posted on this thread over the years, in pursuit of solving the Mystery of the White Balls in My Poop, and who've made me LMAO in the process: I have verified the Effexor XR theory, and will provide the link as well as the relevant text here.

http://www.mydr.com.au/medicines/cmis/efexor-xr-modified-release-capsules

"Do not be concerned if you see small white granules or balls in your stools after taking Efexor-XR. Inside Efexor-XR capsules are spheroids or small white balls that contain the venlafaxine active ingredient. These spheroids are released from the capsule into your gastrointestinal tract. As the spheroids travel the length of your gastrointestinal tract, venlafaxine is slowly released. The spheroid 'shell' remains undissolved and is eliminated in your stools. Therefore, even though, you may see spheroids in your stools, your dose of venlafaxine has been absorbed."

So, there you have it! Not only are the little white balls in your poop normal if you are taking this extended-release drug, you are also (presumably) receiving the dosage that your prescribing doctor intended.

Anonymous Coward's picture

the little white balls r definitely undigested medication from capsules had for many years.

Anonymous Coward's picture

I've been noticing the LWB's for a while and wondered but not too concerned as I take a lot of vitamins and meds. Decided to dissect one this morning and if it's the "shell" of my Effexor (aka, generic venlafaxine tablet my HMO provides for me in lieu of Effexor capsules) then it's still full of the powdery stuff that I assume is the actual medication. Also, I follow the guidelines on "how to take Effexor" and still get WHOLE pills in my poop.
Now I know why I occasionally have the withdrawal symptoms even when I have taken my medication. I'm going to call my pharmacist today but WOW this was fun.

How to take Efexor-XR

Swallow the capsules whole with a glass of water or other non-alcoholic liquid. Do not divide, crush, chew or dissolve the capsules in water.

Thanks everybody! Woke up at four in the morning with diarrhea and saw lwb's and was horrified. I then spent the day studying my poop, my 4 year old son's poop, and my 7 year old son's poop lookin for worms and eggs. Not a good day. I also take effexor xr and am relieved to know that is what it is because my mother told me that i had to wait for my kids to got sleep, sneak into their room with a flashlight and look at their b-holes to see if there were worms coming out to lay eggs! Thank you for saving me.

There are 2 main culprits I suspect here:
1) PINWORMS
2) TAPEWORMS

Many people will disagree about tapeworms as the most common species to infect felines does not usually like humans BUT I personally have contracted them from my cat. A cat gets them from eating an animal with fleas that ate the eggs or from grooming fleas off. If it is determined to be tapeworms, remember to treat the cat and the home for fleas. (My vet didn't mention this and we kept having the same issue.) Discourage letting the cat roam if there are abandoned buildings as they are flea breeding grounds.

Pinworms are found most in people and are uncommon but found in cats. While people can not know if they have a tapeworm, pinworms cause some pretty intense itchy butts.

The funny thing about all of this, is that it is pretty obvious that this site is not intending to be serious, even though it was a serious question. I caught on to that within seconds of reading the post. Yet, people still continue to ask medical questions and then get upset when the regulars respond. That is classic.

thisisaweirdgrosssite, Strange that you would pick a user name that denigrates the site then proceed to make a comment on said site. Your diagnosis is rather off base also. The main symptom of pinworms is an itchy asshole. Pinworms do not cause abdominal pain, bloody bowel movements, fevers, or poor appetite. If a person has any of these signs or symptoms, they may have a more serious condition and should call a doctor or visit the hospital's emergency department.

Pinworms are very easy to cure and there are many remedies that are not stupid. If you have been in pain for four years it's time you took your doctor seriously and looked for a solution to your problem.

Hi...poop master again,gas and bad smelling stools are also signs of giardia.it can and does look like very small White balls...a bit like hundreds and thousands and can easily be mistaken for a pill you are taking....which it could well be,but the blood and faeces tests will diagnose this if it is.
Always trying to help....the poop master xxx

Anonymous Coward's picture

Little White balls is a sign of parasites, or giardia which is a type of parasite. If you have abdominal pain or cramps and/or stomach upset or nausia then these are classic signs. You need to go to the doctors and get a blood test to test your eosinophil levels and a faeces sample taken for examination. Everyone has parasites of some form.Giardia is caused by contaminated water or food.
Hope this has helped!
The poop master!

Thank god...I found my answer to my lwb, I also take effexor xr, now generic. Just noticed these bizzare LWB also but by accident.First thing came to mind was parasite egg. Now I think it is the effexor xr. My mood has not been very good, very depressed,etc. Now I think my mood is bad because my med is not being digested properly. I will still get a fecal test done. I also read something about cortisol levels that have an effect on metabolizing meds, and food. As far as people with mucous in there fecal matter that is normal....trust me people that have IBS have this problem. People, we need to remember what the colon is for, it is a dump for our food, your body does different things to process and breakdown what we eat, your colon might need mucous to help with the colon. I will get back with all of u LWB poops as soon as I find out. It will be this week.

I have a question. I went on a milk only diet for four days -- drinking copious amounts -- nearly a gallon a day and that is all I had. No food. My poop is nearly white now. Is this normal or is my liver or gallbladder failing?

I haven't found anything like your description. However, there is a wide variety of possibilities for little white balls in poop, from emptied husks of medications to okra seeds. The doctor would likely need a sample.

Anonymous Coward's picture

I sent this once, but it didn't show up, so I'm trying again.

I, too, do not take any medications. Still, I have seen white balls, sesame seed-like things, and dark brownish things in my poop (that look like half a hull of a cooked kidney bean). These are constantly in my poop. I've eaten a vegetarian diet for years, and have seen these in my poop for at least a year, if not 3 or 4. I always thought it was undigested rice, and beans. Then it crossed my mind that I could be wrong and that I had a parasite. And now I've found all this info online, and there's NO ONE over the years of info that I can find who has definitive info. I finally talked to a doctor who believed me/didn't think I was crazy when I talked about the "rice seeds" in my poop, and the doc said it was most likely tapeworm. He gave me a one dose pill and said to return if they didn't go away in two weeks. Also, I ventured a gander at the half kidney bean-like hull. I did a salt water bath enema, and everything came out pretty free. To understand this next graphic description, imagine the bottom half of a boat (without the sails), turn it upside down, and turn the front to face you. This is the perspective I was looking at the first "half-bean hull." The first bean hull I looked at, this is not exaggerated and not for the faint of heart so read no further if you don't want to be grossed out, definitely looked like a centered single eye with a raised design below the eye. It looks mostly like this

.O
//\\
(( ))

(You will need to cover the period up, center the O a bit to the right, and connect the gaps between the slashes and the parentheses below them. What results is a cyclops eye, with pincer-like shape below it)

The above pictured shape was entirely on the hull, the pincer-looking thing as well. It was all the same color as the hull. The other two were a bit different. They both were missing the pincer-like shape (instead there was an upside down U shaped hole. It looked like one had the "eye" above it, though.
The last one didn't have an eye, but did have a slender yellowish-cellophane colored strip extending from it (about an inch long). NASTY! I found another longer strip of that slender yellowish-cellophane strip when digging in my poop today (no brown hulls present). There's even more stuff I could mention, but that's the majority of it.
I am beyond troubled that with all the threads on this topic, no one can say what this stuff is, or hasn't returned to tell their findings if they do know. I can't find anything on these kidney bean-like "heads" (?) especially. I've gone to doctors. This kidney bean deal, if I remember correctly, was actually one I brought to a doctor four years ago! But that doctor laughed and said it was dried poop. The three I came up with don't resemble poop. So, I'm not frantic because evidently, these creatures may have been around inside for sometime. Just waiting to see what else comes out, and tell my doctor (who seems reliable) when the two weeks is up. Anyone else a poop digger? Find anything like this?

My toilet keeps backing up and lately I've been noticing these little pill shaped white floaty things. So I immediately googled. First I found a site (medical) that told me they were the undigested carcasses of the pill, and I was getting the med after all. Then I found this site. Outside of making me laugh, it actually turned out to be more informative. My question is, is there a "How to keep pill carcasses from blocking your plumbing"? Thank heavens I'm not on a septic tank. Maybe we should write the companies and demand that those coverings dissolve after 3 days.

Thanks for the giggles

Wow, I was nervous just typing in 'undigested whole pills in feces' (you know, in case I ever become famous or am charged with a crime and people determine everything I've ever searched for, can't be too careful!) when I could have just written 'pills in poop' and got here in half the time. :-)
How nice to know that over a span of 5 years or so, dozens of people have formed their own helpful database of 'things to be found in poop.'
And lots of honesty, kindness and reassurance.
Everybody poops, but only very special people look, search, dissect, analyze, squeeze and talk about it online. Be well.

White Balls in My poop's picture

I do NOT take Effexor or any pills.
My butt doesn't itch any more than a normal ass would itch. I have little white balls that looks like fat...or glue? Poop is very loose. It feels like I have a poop stuck in the chamber and other poop goes past it bring out little white fat balls. They are about 3-5 mm in size. sometimes in the poop, sometimes just by themselves.

Anonymous Coward's picture

So my cat has worms and has the white balls in her poop too, and just recently I have started to get the same thing, is there anyway I could of some how got that from her? But I don't take the pill everyone was talking about, and I don't eat rice or anything like that so I really don't know what it could be if it isn't the parasitee.

haaaaah skye. I don't have any of this ^_^ i just felt like posting something 'cause i wanted to seem "cool" ahaha. but yeah... so peaceoutttt.

Anonymous Chick's picture

So to everyone who doesn't believe that tests will help because THEY don't think it's what the doc says. The whole reason you went to the doctor was for answers right? Well why don't you follow the doctors orders instead of wasting their time trying to make you better? You don't expect them to just look at you and assume something without testing it. It would be rather foolish not to get your shit tested if you are having problems. I don't have said problems but I have learned that I AM NOT THE PROFESSIONAL and THEY ARE! Some doctors are quacks, but I know I didn't go to med school so they know a tad bit more than I. lol So go to the doc, go through their tests, get better, and stop relying on the internet for help.

AC, I'm sure lots of people have gone to the doctor and learned they have parasites; but most of them wouldn't have complained about little white balls, but rather itching or little worm things, white or other. Little white balls are usually leftovers from food or pills. Parasites are usually thinner, and some of them move (yuck).

I followed the same experiment that Gutbehurting wrote about - Got the white balls out of my poop, split open the Efexor capsule and compared the contents. He's right! They're exactly the same! My problem is I don't take Efexor, never taken it in my life. I had to "borrow" an Efexor capsule from my neighbor in order to do the experiment. Now I'm really worried because it's obvious some alien is feeding me antidepressants in my sleep. Also today I passed some black balls so I need to know what other medication I'm being poisoned with.

no effexor in your diet? white balls stil in your stool? Already taken the pin-x and still have Intestinal pain? Ths may be of help.

I am not responsible for the result of any ingestion of the folliwing elixer recipe. Any use of/ingestion of the listed information below will be done at your own risk.

Parasite poison: - Black walnut hull tincture (can be found at local wholefoods) 5 drops. 2 teaspoons if you're brave. Wormwood supplements (availale at whole food store). Go to a feed shop and get bag of FOOD GRADE! important FOOOD GRADE! diatomaceous earth. any other grade will kill you just like it kills garden bugs and vermint. Food grade diatomaceos earth. Buy many bags of fresh or bagged pumpkins seeds to make an herbal tea out of. Many crushed cloves fresh. Fresh papaya will also work but papaya leaves to make tea is strongest, if available. Also the rind of papaya contains a form of latex which can be made into a tea for use against invaders. I don't condone drug use, but a dub of ganj is handy for nausea and discomfort. Plastic gloves and hand soap. vacuum is optional. Make the pumpkin seeds &or-rind/leaf into a tea using a pot and boiling water for use as a paralyzing tincture or eat many raw pumpkin seeds/papaya pulp raw. Mix a glass full of distilled water(like glacier water) with black walnut hull droplets & heaping tablespoons of *food grade* diatamaceous earth for relief. Drink the pumkin&or papaya tea, then drink the blackwalnut/Diatamaceous earth iquid mix (make sure to keep diatomaceus earth stirring as it will sink to the bottom fot the glass. Take wormwood pills. Coq10 300 mg I have seen advised to those with a migrating infection. Optional bong rip to eliminate nausea. Its an important practice to drink non chlorinated water as parasitic corpes leave many toxins which can reverse the benefits of good health. Soothing organic herbs, teas, soups an rest will help heal the body back to its original state. A good, solid, prayer everynight to keep in touch with a guardian Angel would help as much as any medication. Good luck to you all, remember you're not alone in this situation and that being healthy is your natural way of life.

I've been taking effexor, then effexor xr for a few years now. I've got a whopper case of fibromyalgia, depression etc. Though hundreds of folks who have lwb's are taking time release meds, I was not so easily convinced. OK now I'm a believer, kind of. The lwb's didn't start showing up till I started effexor xr. The insoluble, time release balls, within the capsule, makes a lot of sense. Some other observations/inquiries - I've ALWAYS had IBS. Seriously, all the way back to when I was a kid. Only when I have constipation do I NOT see the lwb's. I have to stay hydrated therefore I only get constipated from extreme stress. So my bowels are usually rather lose. And I pass food through my gut very quickly. I'm wondering what the rate of effexor xr diffusion from the lwb's is. Could I be passing the lwb's of effexor xr more quickly than the nominal absorption rate?

Anonymous Coward's picture

I cannot believe you people.Read the instructions that come with any meds, or call the pharmacy, or your Dr.Then the most important thing is to NOT be asking un informed people for help with your problem.Also tape worms are not little round balls, they look like a tape measure. Thread worms look like pieces of thread, and pin worms look like and are the same size as pins.(seamstress pins)An mucous wraps around your feces, and is probably due to an infection, or irritation!

Hi poopers. I am currently on the Master Cleanser and am excreting the little white balls along with my runny stool. I also take Effexor XR. I assume that some of my medicine is not getting digested and passing through quickly. But I am relieved that they are not parasites.

I am so glad I found this site. I've looked online before but must not have used the right words. Been having these little white thingies on the toity paper for some time, but since I'm on Effexor XR, this thread has put my mind at ease. Thanks fellow white-balls-in-the-poopers.

gutbehurting's picture

Addendum to yeaterday's post -I have an exreted LWB here on some TP. I have some old samples of Effexor XR, so I gently pulled the Effexor capsule open. Guess what I found? LWB's!! They are virtually the same diamater as the excreted ones. So my hypothesis remains unchanged. In fact I'm more certain of it now. The LWB's (at least in my case)are indeed the balls that the med is contained in. I still have concerns that my almost constant diarhea is flushing the LWB's through before I can get total absorption. Before the question of LWB's ever came up I complained to my psych doc that I didn't think the effexor was working all that well. So he added different meds to the cocktail, and later on upped my dosage of effexor. I wonder what effect the effexor is actually having. But being a chronic psych patient I don't dare stop taking any of my meds. I'm going to check with the manufacturer, and get their song and dance on this issue. Will let you know what I find out. In the meantime LWB's still do not appear to me to be a concern. The caveat being that maybe we're not getting full absorption of this very expensive med. I'll let you know what I find out.

Gutbehurting's picture

I think we are all ok. The commonality here is that, we who have the LWB's in our stool, are taking time released meds. Most of us are taking Effexor XR. I'm not a doc but my research strongly indicates that the med is absorbed out of the actual balls of medicine within the capsule. There are microscopic pores that allow the med to slowly release over time, hence extended release. IBS often accompanies depression which we all know is why we take Effexor. This does raise one question. Since we often have diarrhea; are we passing the med balls out too quickly before we get full absorption of the med? My guess is that we probably do miss out on some of the med absorption when this occurs. BUT I don't think there's need to panic(Oh God where's my xanax-haha) because I see the LWB's when I'm constipated too. So it seems that at worst we aren't getting full absorption when having diarrhea. I'd be interested to know of other commonalities. I'm male, drink soy milk, had girhdea(sic) as a teenager, childhood lead poisoning and have a whopper case of fibromyalgia. Anyone?

Dear no name too embarrassed:
Your poop has hard things with a line in the middle and strings.
I suggest that you stop eating yo-yos.
Also delete marbles and glass beads from your diet.
Have you noticed if your stools are reflective if you shine a torch on them? This would be the micro-beads that belong in highway line marking paint. Stop eating that stuff, too.

I have sesame things usually small and very hard daily and very rough ragged stool.

I go all day long, no kidding I cannot even exercise and have not worked due to not ever taking the bus,

I I go anywhere I have to not eat, sleep, and use sleeping pills and lie very vertical, else up the stuff wants out, there are strings there is mucous, I had colitis, micro, but last scope said no, now IBS, ( odd really) but the sesame seed type things if micro scoped and washed do look like they have loads of membraines and have a line in middle, an end and you can not break them you have to almost give up or stab them, these monsters are harder than a rock and you stool if you push on the bowl will sound like glass scrapping the bowl. its a horrid life, its terrible and like many others my life is so much about living in a bowl, that happens to be white it is exhausting me. I see a gastro every month, he had no idea what it was, said bring in, the lab said they do not accept this sort of thing, but my stool came out normal, it happened that I tried my sample and of all dam days I had no stool. or barely any. There is no gas, It is always stool, it smells up the middle floor in my house, its horrid, its gross and I am not living, its existing in a hermit shell. I live to live frankly and am surprised I have not collapsed or given up.

Hello! I was curious about what I found in my poop today. I saw only one on the toilet paper. This is hard to describe so bare with me. I found a green like seed with a black dot at the tip of it. It also looks like it is filled with something inside of it. In other words, it is not flat looking. I wish I could send you a picture of it. I saved it in a plastic bag. My stomach has been feeling a little weird for a few days. Can you help me? Have you heard of such a thing in poop? Thank you so much for taking the time to read my e-mail.

OK all you scatoligically minded, time release med gobbling folks. Effexor XR for me as well. Been freaked out for years until I landed here! Now I can't stop laughing. Four years ago I reluctantly collected some of those alien bug thing/nano-transmitters, and asked my Doc. about them. She looked at me like I was the geek that I am (the type of geek who shows up here!) and said curtly "I have no idea". Well, I got my hands on a dissecting microscope, and a razor blade, cut one in half, and there were numerous minute whitish crystals inside the tough almost leathery "shell". Well, that freaked me out even worse, and has been freaking me out since. I finally guessed that it was phagotysized leukocytes...NOT. Now, thanks to you Poop Squad Troops, I am now enlightned and relieved!(no pun). So...300 mg. of Effexor XR is the maximum effective dose any way, and my God that stuff is expensive. I'm gonna talk to my Doc. about evenly spaced doses of generic venlafaxine. MUCH Cheaper, and no more scary albino specks in our efluvious excrement.

If you started taking a new medicine recently that's in capsule form (with the little balls inside it), then that's what it is. It's not fully digested medicine.

Dear wtf,

Jealousy is such an ugly, and useless, emotion. Therapy may help, but the real solution is to go and get your own little white balls in your poop. It will give you the sense of belonging you crave, a tremendous feeling of being a "part of" rather than left out, which, by your reaction, seems to be the story of your life...craving attention with your internet screaming...its ok, I understand, and am here to help.

I get my medical care from the VA thanks to the fact I am a partially disabled veteran, and one of my doctors is female, but I have no qualms about showing her my asshole or even allowing her to probe it if she thinks it is necessary for a correct diagnosis.

Doctors are there to cure your ills, not to laugh at you, grow up and get over your foolishness.

I may have gone to far on my last visit when I asked if I could see her asshole too. Oh well.

Hi Ya'll! I have had the little rice sized off white and white things in my poo. The doc only did a Giardia test Which came back negative. I also had gurgling especially when I lay down at nite. Go barefoot all the time and have dogs and cats. All see the vet regularly. I don't have it now, and I did nothing,because the doc did nothing. WHAT WE have is an epidemic of Medical Professionals that don't know what they are doing. I wasn't loosing weight,so "It must not be worms". Earlier someone said they have no test. Maybe we should all do the colon cleanse thing,then we could see all that other stuff in there and really freak! Oh, I am an old lady Over 50!! I have gone to the health food store and have almost cured my GERD with simply taking Calcium & Magnesium. Now, I have chronic Candida that I am on a special diet for and probiotics.NO, THe doc didn't reccomend it, I was sick n tired of the problem,and went to the health food store.AND got info to educate myself on the internet. I think these things are related. I am already drinking a ginger tea with a crushed clove in it. Maybe that will run off the varmits. I do think it is a cryng SHAME that our Health care professionals (a) CHARGE too much (b) do not help us (c) work for the pharmacueticals (d) ask us to fill out a questionare with a lot of check offs and then never even look at it.(e)Overprescirbe antibiotics,ect. & (f) don't really care about our well being, just their wallets and tee off time!!
So, We need to be more aggressive to our Docs! Get their attention and don't let them say No, unless you completely agree. Ain't it sad that we are afraid of what they think. Don't stop checking here on the Web,we learn the most from each other!!

ATTENTION! If you are having little "white clearish"things about the length of a staple (maybe smaller)and especially if they are wiggling around, they are more than likely pin worms. they are HIGHLY contagious so do not feel bad. An infected person (usually children) could have spread them to you without you ever knowing it. They can even become airborn when they are small enough and can be inhaled. There are over the counter medications (if you are like me and are too ashamed to go to the doctor) such as Pin-x that i have heard are just as effective as the perscription strength. Pin-x is around $13 for two doses (that is all you need, the first takes care of everything, the second prevents it from coming back) The pin worms lay eggs in the tissue around your anus. This eggs can remain dormant for up to 2 weeks. Be SURE to clean all bedding and clothing you came in contact with so that the disease doesn't come back. Most importantly, glad to hear I am not alone =]. good luck with all your poo issues!

I hope it clears it up, because I have been showering twice a day, washing my hands a LOT and changing bedding and underwear all the time. I too see the "White Balls" But I doubt they have anything to do with my pinworms

I know they aren't a serious medical problem, but it isn't very fun having worms playing Peek-a-boo with your ass hole. I hope for the best, considering my beautiful nails have been cut to the nub. Thanks ya little worm bastards.

Sartori, if you eat fresh peas, sometimes your digestion can bleach them and the skins can come out white; if they fill with poop they will still be little balls. Usually peas are easy to digest, but not if you're having trouble. They don't come out all at once, either, but some at a time over a period of several bowel movements. Another possibility is okra seeds; if the okra is somewhat mature (just on the edge of edibility), the seeds can swell during transit and look a bit larger when they show up in poop. I'm not saying that either of these is your solution, but one of them might be. Garbanzo beans (whole) can also bleach on their way through if not digested well.

I've tried to read through all of this, but it's too much to sort out...lol...I got lost! I was just wondering if there was a simple answer. I have small white pea-sized balls in my poop. I do not take any medication (at all), and have a severe dairy allergy. They just started showing up about 2 months ago, and they're pretty regular...twice a day. My "movements" are usually mostly liquid, and I have to go about every four hours. I have no insurance, and cannot afford to see a doctor (to answer your question as to why I'm on this site). I am amazed that so many people have experienced this phenomenon, and I was so happy that I FINALLY found some information about it, only to be disheartened when I realized that everyone else's problems were easily explained by medication. Is there anyone that might have any suggestions? I'm grasping at straws, but this site seems pretty popular, and maybe someone will read this post who has an answer. Thank you so much...and I hope that I hear something positive soon!

Ok I have been examining my poop for awhile now since I have IBS. When I disovered the LWB's in my poop several months ago and told my doc's my finding on this site, let's just say my pych meds (effexor xr being one of them) were increased LOL.

Anyways I was determined to prove my case that I was not crazy about these LWB's so I put on my research hat. For all of you who are taking capsules, especially Effexor XR here is a site that explains that the balls (spheroids) release the med slowly and the insoluble portion is eliminated and may be seen in the stools.

For those needing proof visit http://emc.medicines.org.uk/document.aspx?documentId=2210 section 5.2 last sentence. I knew we all couldn't be going crazy! Sad part about this is no doc I came across knew about this...kinda scary don't ya think!

Effexor is obviously a medication that kills parasites. That is why you are seeing them.

" few moths ago I got the flu and so did my mom. The entire time my mom had the flu she had diarrhea but I got it only on the last day I showed any symptoms of the flu. I have had diarrhea since then and now I'm getting hemorrhoids all the time.
I noticed the blood and my stool started to smell weird. Then I saw little white things in my stool; they don't move but sometimes at night I start to itch(making me paranoid that I worms), so I'm not sure if it's worms.
Then one time I ate a bun with sesame seeds and had more of the little white things, one was on the paper so I cleand it off and watched it for awhile to see if it would move but it didn't, so I took the paper and squeezed it; it popped and white stuff come out(kinda like a pimple). Was that a seed?
I also have some adominal pain and now I'm seem to be alternating between diarrhea and constipation but mostly diarrhea. I don't take any medications. What would most likely be causing all of this?"

I've tried to read things online but is there anything that REALLY gets rid of it?? It hurts and it ridiculous that I can't go to the bathroom without it hurting. It seems my body switched from D to constipation. ugh.

Also excessive flatulence and burping
Early on I had a colonoscopy which discovered a cancer which was removed successfully. However my symptoms did not go away. My doctor and gastroenterologist have given up on me.

When I lie down to sleep i get a lot of burping. I lie on one side until the burping stops- sometimes with an unpleasant gastric refulx.
I then roll on the other side and repeat the process. I then sit up have a few massive burps and then can go to sleep.
This can take 30 minutes or more and sometimes wakes me up and distresses me so much I can't go to sleep.

I did find this site on the web
Wrongdiagnosis.com - stool symptoms
But the link on white dots in stools has disappeared. I think you have to 'join up'. I am looking at that now
I notice they also have symptoms list which included abdominal distension , excessive sweating (and for me excessive thirst.) These I also have.

I was 8 or 9 years old when i found out i had pin worms. I had them for a good solid 2 years before i told my mom. I was too emabrrassd, the doc gave me meds i pooped them all out along with a lot of blood, im now 23 and and for the last 2 months i feel as if i have them again, but i dont see them in my poop. I feel somthing moving in there, somtimes itchy at times, im clean a always shower, and now just recently i just saw white round things in my poop, they are like jelly bean size. Im sooo scared to see a doc, cuz i dont want them thinking im not clean. But dont only kids get pin worms? And if this doesnt sound like pin worms, could it be somthing bigger. Im really freaked out! To add, no im not on any sort of medications...nothing at all!

I too have these small white balls in my pooh I've had them since Nov. I went to the Dr. a week ago and turned in stool specimens I got my results back today NO PARASITES or PARASITE OVA! I told a friend of mine about the white balls or seeds in my stool she explained she had the same problem when she was on effexor. That explained everything because I started taking Effexor XR 150mg in mid October.

OMG! I take Effexor xr too, and also have the tiny hard white balls in my dooky! They kind of remind me of those little round sprinkles people use for ice cream toppings... I'm not too worried about it now that I know other people are experiencing the same thing that take effexor.

wow. Well I just had some white in poop (that's what i googled and it brought me here) and after reading I'm convinced that it must be this probiotic i'm taking called jarro-dophilus EPS. it's in the capsule form and it's purpose is related to digestion. hmm. anyone? anyone?

I also noticed these white balls in my stool for about a month; like 0.8mm in diameter. I was very scared for I though it was a big worm putting these things inside me. One of messages I saw here today mentioned something about a medication. These made me realized that I started to take some vitamin C about amonth ago. As always I tend to buy the most moder stuff, so I bought these capsules containing round shaped white balls about 0.9 mm in diameter. My lucky finding: these balls are not being absorved by my body. The good mews is they are NOT worm eggs.

Glad I found this thread! (And it's still going strong 4+ years later XD) I'm on Effexor XR as well and noticed similar little white things in my poop. Was worried I might have worms (I work at a veterinary office) but didn't have any symptoms. Glad to know what it really is.

Oh, and all the e-mail you will be receiving over the next few days, regarding Acai Berry Juice, Herb-a-Life, Kirby Vacuums, Amway Products, and payday loans didn't come from here.

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I cannot stress this enough.

AC, to confirm we now have your correct email address (which as Bilge told you we would never use for any purpose whatsoever) please send your SSN, bank account number and password, and mother's maiden name. We won't use these, either.
