Varies: With a modest infestation, there are sometimes no symptoms at all. If the infestation is greater you might have anemia with fatigue and weakness, you might have abdominal cramping and diarrhea and of course if your stool is analyzed the individual egg packets of the tapeworm can be identified.

Usually nine: People usually have no symptoms at all, until they see a piece of worm in their stool. With severe infections, you could have gastrointestinal symptoms, weight loss, or, with some types of tapeworm, anemia.
