In brief: Metronidazole

Metronidazole is the usual first line treatment for Endolimax nana.
Sometime people can carry this parasite and feel just fine, but sometimes it may need to be treated. It is not a likely cause of joint pains so I would discuss this also with your doctor.

Did the doctor who ordered the lab not treat you when the results came back? I'm confused.
