Difference between Coenurosis infection and a tapeworm infection in humans?

I wonder if it is ok to post a picture I found on a website that would help me show you all what I've been seeing in my feces. This whole nightmare began with getting bites this past spring and another thing that happened was I went to a different place to have a pedicure and they did a terrible job (they caused my toe to bleed and didn't inform me that I had an ingrown toenail which I cut myself at home). I've been to so many doctors. This is very hard to do because of the stress I have at home and this brain fog that also began after the bites. I found a few egg sacs in my stool. They kind of looked like glycerin suppositories but I knew they were different looking so I saved them. After looking everywhere on the internet I found out that they are called Dipylidium caninum or Gravid proglottids containing egg packets. I was holding one in my hands (with gloves) and it broke open and I saw tons of tiny eggs). I saved the other few but threw them out after they turned yellow and dried up (maybe I should have saved them but a doctor will not look at anything like that, they get very angry when you bring in samples like that). Someone on here told me I had a coenurosis infection. I'm just wondering if because I had the eggs in my stool that is a sign of coenurosis and not just being the host of a Tapeworm infection. I wish I could post the website with the picture of the eggs that I keep seeing in my stools. My skin is affected also and my joints hurt and ache especially if I try to nap for a couple of hours. I'm going crazy trying to figure this out. Why don't doctors know anything about coenurosis or even tapeworm. Every doctor seems to think this is a very unusual illness and one doctor told me I could never see anything in my stool because everything is so very small I would need a very high powered microscope. I did order a hand held digital microscope from Amazon that someone on here suggested to me :) I'd love to hear from anyone who understands or is going through something similar to what I am going through. Thank you all so very much!
