4 months of inexplicable diarrhea...

Hi team,

Any help or ideas appreciated! I'm going on 4 months of constant, persistant diarrhea (10x/day, every day & night). This began 10 days after returning from Thailand and Indonesia. I've had 4 rounds of stool, breath, and blood tests for parasites & bacteria, (including specific tests) all of which have been negative. I've been tested for celiac (negative) gall bladder hormone disorders (negative) and had a colonoscopy & endoscopy to check for IBS, Crohn's, and Colitis (all normal). I've also tried 3 rounds of different antibiotics (Metronidizole, Xifaxan, and something stronger that I can't remember), tried a diet of only rice and steamed veggies, and been taking a plethora of probiotics, none of which have had any effect.

Does anyone have any other ideas? I will do anything!! I've been to three doctors, pooped in more cups that imaginable, and am so so sick of waking up at night every night with this :( Please help!!
