Chronic diarrhea for 6 months.

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi, Im a 23 yr old male. I have been suffering from chronic diarrhea,  pale stools, and a gnawing empty feeling in my stomach that came un suddenly about 5 months ago ,right around the time I was taking a round of cipro for a uti.  Since then I have done 2 endoscopies and 1 colonoscopy, blood tests, biopsies, stool tests, cat scan, and xrays of my abdomen only to find  practically nothing. The only things found in all of these tests were high liver enzymes, high sed rate, and an unknown mass in my liver area. 

The diarrhea slowed down a little my GI prescriped me flagyl, and probiotics which I didn’t finish.  I still have some days of diarrhea on and off, lately its been getting worse again. I wake up super lightheaded with an awful gnawing in my stomach that feels like Ive been starving myself for days, and a burning sensation in my upper Gi. I’ve also been having nausea and vomiting sometimes as well.

Im still working with my doctor, but does anyone have any theories? im suffering and missing out on my life.
