freaking out - worms in cod but I still ate it!

Now I know there was already a thread on this last week, but it didn't exactly answer the question that I have. Last night I made cod for dinner and when I was removing the fillet from the pan, remembering the thread on worms in fish, I decided to check through the fish. And I found a small red worm! Ugh, it was so disgusting and I dry heaved but I pulled it out and threw it away and then popped the fish back in the pan for a few more minutes to really cook it. And then I ate it....
My question is - am I in danger? I didn't find any other worms but I'm really freaking out that I'm going to get a tapeworm or some other vile condition, even though I definitely cooked the fish through and through. Does anyone have any sage advice?
