    A Man Pulled Out A 5-Foot Tapeworm From His Body And OMFG

    WTF

    Hold on to your stomachs guys, because this one is a doozy.

    Ok, are you ready? A man in California recently discovered a 5-foot 6-inch tapeworm living in his body.

    That's right. A man (who has not been identified) reportedly went to the emergency room in Fresno, California, complaining of diarrhea and abdominal pain, which apparently turned out to be much more. A tapeworm.

    Five-foot long tapeworm came 'wiggling out' out of man's body after he ate sushi https://t.co/P6VjfN9iHm

    The patient told the ER physician at the Community Regional Medical Center about the worm. When the doctor became skeptical, the man presented him with the evidence.

    This was all retold on a recent episode of the podcast “This Won’t Hurt a Bit” by Dr. Bahn.

    Dr. Bahn said, “He grabs it, and he pulls on it, and it keeps coming out. He picks it up and looks at it. And what does it do? It starts moving.”

    He was given medication to help remove the rest of the tapeworm from his body, but it appears this tapeworm has not deterred him from enjoying his daily sushi.
