Unhappy Help!!

I posted this a few days ago but it's gotten worse. There are tiny white worms all over the sides of my 10 gal. freshwater com. tank; I've been sick and I had to clear out my entire filtration system today. It wasn't fun . Even if no one can help me get rid of them, I would like to know if they're a threat and how serious... any help would be greatly appreciated!

Can you post some pics of them so we can see and try to identify them.

They are most likely Planaria, and you're likely overfeeding this tank. Control the feeding and up the water changes and gravel vacs. Some meds will work, but no need to go there yet.
