Possible parasite?

Healthy male 66.  6 weeks ago, had no energy.  Developed cough, severe diarrhea, vomiting, loss of appetite, headache, pain in lower back.  In the last 3 weeks, I have been in and out of the ER three times.  Hundreds of blood tests and stool specimins and all come back negative.  Right now have fever of 102 and rigor.  Vomiting has subsided, but still have diarrhea and back pain.  I was in Costa Rica in February for 3 weeks but my last blood smear rules out malaria.  
Can anyone help?  Should I see an infectious disease specialist?

Sounds to me like all the symptoms of a parasite so go see a specialist and maybe try a dose of worm syrup?
