I can appreciate your frustration. Focusing on your gastrointestinal system,
1) are you having abdominal cramping?
2) are you having rectal pain?
3) are you experiencing changes in bowel habits, such as diarrhea or blood in your stool?
4) are you experiencing a decreased appetite or weight loss?
Focusing on diagnostic testing:
1) have you had any type of blood test to check for an infection or anemia?
2) have you had a colonoscopy?
3) have you had any diagnostic imaging of the abdominal area such as an x-ray, CT scan, MRI or small bowel imaging?
I realize that my questions regarding diagnostic testing are based on U.S. protocol and may not be the standard in Canada. I don't know if I have been of any help, but I hope the cause of your problems can be found and fixed.
