So about a month ago I ate a chinese which had pork in, 2 days after I reheated the chinese but I don't think i reheated it properly.
I was just wondering if I could have developed a "Pork Tapeworm" as I have been feeling sick and have had stomach pains for the last couple of weeks.

I have a few questions to ask,

What are the symptoms of Pork Tapeworms?

How can Pork Tapeworms be treated?
and finally,

How long does it take for a Pork Tapeworm to develop after underheated/undercooked pork has been eaten?

Please answer, I would appreciate it greatly [Smile]

If the pork was cooked properly the first time around, then no kind of worm is going to still be alive in it. Thus, with re-heating it, not cooking it properly isn't an issue.

If you've been feeling sick, you may just have caught a stomach bug. Keep yourself hydrated and avoid foods that are hard to digest (very greasy, lots of sugar, etc). If you don't feel better in a couple of days, I suggest you make an appointment to see your doctor.
