Yes, I had a colonoscopy in April of 2006 (about 2 months after my chronic diarrhea started). This is month 19 with chronic diarrhea. Seriously, 19 months straight with diarrhea everyday. The GI specialist said that it was unremarkable...No problems found with the colonoscopy. Yet, I still have this huge overload of mucus in stools. That is what the Dr. can't figure out. I am just so tired of having to live like this. Sometimes I just want to give up because I think I've tried everything I can imagine. I've had TONS of tests, blood tests, stool colutres, upper/lower GI x-rays, EGD, colonoscopy, hida scan, ultrasounds, CT scan, etc.
How do you test for bacterial overgrowth? I have been reading about it and maybe it has something to do with my mpouth symptoms....bad taste, always thirsty, dry, tongue feels "thick", etc.
