• Severe stomach pain / diarrhea for two years & doctors cannot figure out why it's happening or how to help me (I am struggling)

    I am at my wit's end, truly. Approximately two years ago I started having severe (and I mean SEVERE) stomach pain accompanied by diarrhea. This has impacted my life to the point where I am afraid to be outside the house because I may need the bathroom.

    Symptoms: Diarrhea, abdominal pain, frequent mouth sores, night sweats, fatigue.

    [Semi gross details: the diarrhea is watery, oily, unformed, and ranges in color from bright orange, to dark black and tarry, to pale beige. Occasionally I have seen blood in there as well.

    I've had a colonoscopy, endoscopy, and CT scan.

    Everything is normal.

    I feel awful that I am not happy about the normal test results, but I'm not. I cannot keep living like this. I cannot keep having doctors scratch their heads and say, "wow, I don't know what to do for you!"

    The only thing that helps is Zofran (a common anti-nausea given to chemo patients) but that only helps for a small amount of time.

    I don't know what to do. I've tried changing my diet, not drinking alcohol, everything I can imagine to try I've tried.

    Has anyone experienced something similar?
