In brief: Stool test

You should see your doctor to get your stool tested.
If you can save the segments, it would facilitate the diagnosis. Tape worm infestation can be treated with oral medication. See this site for more information. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/tapeworm/basics/causes/CON-20025898
