I have had a similar exposure, but my symptom presentation and perhaps illness is different.  Thank you very much for posting your information like this about your tests.  I too am still searching for answers, but I have not had all of the same tests ran yet.

So it seems that the weight drop you had was due to the Gardia intestinalis right ?

Hello @bil1213

Not sure really. I was diagnosed with Gardia intestinalis in December 2010, took pills for it but never checked if it was gone. Then I was diagnosed again with it in August this year, treat it but also never checked if it was gone. I am going to test for it again first week of January, we will see if it's still there. Maybe that's the reason to my tongue problems? I doubt it, but I will have to check it.

Thanks for your concern.
