Long, stringy, gelly-like, dark brown, thing in feces. Have had diarreah for almost two weeks now. You dont think this is worms do you. (very scared)?

Parasites

Feces
Most parasitic infections in the USA are uncommon and very few will produce the type of structure you have described. Although doubt that these are worms, suggest that to make you feel more at ease, that you see a doctor and provide a stool specimen for examination.

Worms have been found in stool.Now feels like worms under skin on arms.Small, crusty bodies are attached to hair follicles when puled out.What is it?

Worms

Skin
There are a lot of different worms people can contact and in the USA most can be cured with mebendazole. Very few in the USA can ever be seen under the skin. If you got a serious question, an infectious disease specialist would be the one to talk to

What are these white things worms in my stool? What are tests for pinworms?

Your doctor can

Pinworms
A scotch tape test can be done for you. You set your alarm to wake up in the middle of the night (when the pinworms are usually active) and press a piece of scotch tape to your anus. The tape is then stuck to a microscope slide and the laboratory can look for pinworm eggs. A stool sample for ova and parasites is not as good a way to diagnose. Some just do presumptive tx if exposed.

What do little white spots in stool mean? I just began eating pine nuts, could that be the cause? Or could it be worms?

Probably not worms

Feces
Any change in your diet will cause changes to your stool. There is a good chance that you are not completely chewing the pine nuts.

Dr. Timothy Silver answered:

I have white chunks in my stool daily. The chunks do not look like skinny worms. I have been suffering from constipation. Is this a parasite?

See your pediatricMD

Feces
It is more likely than not something you are eating. With that said , you will need a physical exam and interview from your doctor. They may determine that you need additional lab work or testing. This will be based on their findings with your interview, exam and past medical history.
