Let me start off by saying that I am a worry wart. This may be contributing to my symptoms, but here is my problem...
Back in March of this year, I was diagnosed with Giardiasis. My gastroenterologist put me on powerful antibiotics for 10 days to get rid of the parasite infection. I have had intestinal problems ever since. My problems started in February when I was having a lot of abdominal pain, loss of appetite, and yellowy stools. This all was due to the Giardiasis. Another thing that started to happen was I was getting occasional lower back pain. Ever since then, my stools have returned to a normal color, but they are not completely formed, and I have pains in my lower right abdomen, as well as under my belly button. The lower right pain is not constant, and seems to be associated with gas. The pain under my belly button tends to go away after a bowel movement. My back/side pain is usually all of the time. It isn't intense, I can deal with it, but it is still there. I can press on my abdomen and feel no pain.
Let me also add that I am overweight, so I was thinking that could be possible for my back pain as well, but it is always in the same place.
