I ate some undercooked Crab meat  Embarassed . The shell was red from steaming and being the noob that I am I ate the "different" tasting crab and thought nothing of it until I finished.

Should I visit a doctor or hope I am ok or not worry about it?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

are you sure it was undercooked or maybe it was just dead?  That stated food poisoning from dead crabs is no fun either.  Did you catch these crabs yourself?

I am not positive that it was undercooked but the meat was very watery. I caught them. They were alive before I put them in the steamer. I only at like 3. I am not really worried about food poisoning but Paragonimiasis sounds scary.

Here is the CDC analysis (the blue crab is not a known carrier BTW)....
Epidemiology & Risk Factors

Fresh-water crabs were implicated in a Paragonimus outbreak in January of 2007.
Several species of Paragonimus cause most infections; the most important is P. westermani, which occurs primarily in Asia including China, the Philippines, Japan, Vietnam, South Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand. P. africanus causes infection in Africa, and P. mexicanus in Central and South America. Specialty dishes in which shellfish are consumed raw or prepared only in vinegar, brine, or wine without cooking play a key role in the transmission of paragonimiasis. Raw crabs or crayfish are also used in traditional medicine practices in Korea, Japan, and some parts of Africa.
Although rare, human paragonimiasis from P. kellicotti has been acquired in the United States, with multiple cases from the Midwest. Several cases have been associated with ingestion of uncooked crawfish during river raft float trips in Missouri.

Relax.  Take two pepto tablets.

Were they dark, heavy crabs or light paper-shells?  Paper shells can be watery as the meat hasn't fully developed.

P.S. - Edaoud nailed the diagnosis.

  That would be my guess too
