Long story short, I became ill with diarrhea for several weeks after visiting Egypt. Ever since I have had chronic fatigue, bloated gut and a soreness beneath the right side of my ribcage.
I have gone to my GP and asked to be tested for giardiasis. She wasnt keen but said she would do an O&P test as it would relieve my stress/anxiety over the issue. She has given me 3 stool tests but they say routine C&S, not O&P. So I dont think Giardiasis (a parasite) is going to befound or even looked for. I think the doctor has fobbed me off with a cheaper test to get me out the door. This is the UK NHS btw. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Have I been decieved or is the C&S stool test the right way to go about it?
