Last week I took some over the counter Reese Pinworm medication and I have not notice any change in my symptoms. Out of frustration I went back to the doctor today and the doctor "finally" order a pinworm lab. I have to do the paddle test for three morning in a row. The lady working at the lab today who hand me the paddles, look totally terrified of me. Anyhow, I don't know if these creatures come out every night or what, but I hope that they don't decide to not come out during the 72 hours I am doing this test. I just want to know if it is this or something else that is causing me all this night time and sometimes day time agony. I will let everyone know my results when i get them.
