Patients can have symptoms like: vomiting, sour belching, indigestion, tastelessness, dizziness, fever, feeling fullness.

  1. b) Raktaja krimi - These originate due to impure blood (infectious). They are described as minute without legs, round and copper colored.
  2. c) Purishaja krimi - These are present in large intestine. They usually travel downwards. If their count is increased significantly, they move towards stomach also.

They are characterized by foul smell in sour belching and deep breathing. The worms are comparatively bigger, and found in dark but multi colors.
