A man has left TikTok users in shock after revealing the aftermath of him deliberately eating tapeworms.

Nicolas Kratka was out fishing when he caught a sea bass, and after cutting into the fish, noticed it was riddled with the parasite.

However, this didn’t put the 23-year-old off – but instead made him curious to see what would happen if he ate the catch, worms and all.

And so he did.Soon after, Nicolas noticed unpleasant side effects and rushed to the doctor, later sharing his experience on TikTok, (@nick_kratka ), where the clip has gathered 8.7 million views.

“I have no regrets,” the content creator from Los Angeles, US, told http://NeedToKnow.co.uk.

“I thought I’d move on with my life as normal.

“What really happened is my stomach started to kill me.

“When I went to the doctor he said there is a high likelihood of the worms spreading to my eyes and brain, which would kill me if I didn’t act fast.”

Nicolas says he was given medication to treat tapeworms and sent on his way.

The experience hasn’t deterred him from trying other unusual, and potentially dangerous, meals in the future.

He said: “Within a week of taking the anti-parasitic medication I didn’t feel anything wrong with my stomach.

“I will continue extreme eating as long as I’m alive.”

In the video shared to social media, Nicolas reveals a picture of the tapeworms in the fish, before speaking to the camera.

“Update on the tapeworm I ate the other day, [shares picture],” he says.

“I went to the doctor and he said it is more than likely that I have tapeworm or some type of parasite inside me.

“I’m going to the bathroom non-stop, my stomach is killing me.”

Nicolas then goes on to explain the medications he has been given, how the tapeworms live inside him and that he hopes to get better soon.

He adds: “I’m an idiot, I’m not going to lie.

“This was totally my fault.”
