How do you know if you have a tape worm in you?

I have been eating like crazy, but not gaining weight, and I feel like something's off. Is there a test a doctor can give me, or what?

Stop exercise so that any weight loss due to tapeworm will be evident. Monitor your weight by recording it every three days. Weight loss for no reason will often occur with tapeworm,Other symptoms: abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea and intense hunger despite eating. If u notice the above symptom do culture test to confirm.
