I'm a male, and I'm having weird fluttering movment in my abdomen, and it scares me because I think of parasites. What can it be?

Abdominal movements: Your description is not specific and parasitic infections are extremely rare to cause such symptoms. Of course, rare cases happen, but that would be almost at the bottom of my list. Other possible explanations would be increased bowel peristalsis (movements). Possibly aortic pulsation may cause that. I would ask for advise of your regular doc first. ...Read more

My stomach, above belly button, has been gurgling frequently lately. Not hunger pains. What causes this? Should I be worried about parasites?

See a doctor: Impossible to know what is causing intestinal 'gurgling', but unless it is bothering you intensely suspect it may be related to your diet or a transient issue that will resolve itself. The major parasite you are likely to get in usa is giardia (a protozoan) which can be diagnosed easily.

Pain in my stomach and nausea every time I eat--doctors have not found anything w/all the usual tests. Could I have a parasite from travels in india?

Stomach Pain: Not sure if you had all the usual tests. Endoscopy will see into the stomach, and take cultures, and samples of tissue from areas that look damaged or diseased. If this test was negative, and the colon test was negative, and the gall bladder test was negative, you could still have gall bladder dysfunction, or irritable bowel syndrome.

Think I picked up some sort of illness in January. But now I have gastroparesis. Could a parasite or stomach virus lead to this? Doesn't seem to add up

Think I picked up some sort of illness in January. But now I have gastroparesis. Could a parasite or stomach virus lead to this? Doesn't seem to add up

Not likely: Gastroparesis is more of a chronic condition that is a result of anatomical injury or as a consequence of another more serious, long term, systemic illness (for example diabetes). More importantly, if you are having GI symptoms that are concerning to you or causing discomfort, I would recommend being seen by a physician in person to discuss further. Hope you feel better soon!
