Usually None: Bjason is referring to a condition of pork parasite infestation. Usually there are no symptoms. If there are symptoms it usually depends on where the infection is. Pain is usually not among the symptoms. Dr. J.

Cysticercosis: Some of the painful symptoms can be severe headaches, seizures and their subsequent muscle aches, nausea or vomiting. Be sure to thoroughly cook your pork!
