Via the video app, Jacqui Birmingham shared a truly grim tale about finding worms in her stool, which is bad enough, but she had to fork out a hefty $3000 bill to get rid of them.
In the horrifying clip, with more the 10,000 million views, she shared that after a few weeks she started getting “really really sick”, was “tired all the time” and had severe stomach aches. This lasted for two months, she explained.
Now, here is where it starts to very graphic.
It was after feeling the intense need to go to the bathroom that she found worms resembling “noodles” in her stool.
Naturally, she called the doctor to help her figure out what was going on in her stomach, which by her own accounts, was a cringeworthy conversation.
“They had to call the infectious disease doctor to look at my poop,” she says in the startling video.
Turns out the worms had a name: ‘acariasis’, which by google definition is a disease caused by an infestation. Yikes.
Following warnings from the infectious disease doctor, she says she was prescribed three pills to rid her of the worms — the pricey bills weren’t covered by her insurance and cost her $3000.
In the recent follow-up video, Jacqui couldn’t believe “so many believe so many people were invested in her worms.”
According to Jacqui, the salad company offered her a free salad after her ordeal which she declined.
She also warned people to always wash their salads. Great advice.
