A call for help

Hello all I am new to this forum and made account because honestly I don't know what to do anymore.  

A little background on myself. I am a 27 year old male who has been going back and forth with health issues and mental problems for the past 2 years. Before all this I was perfectly healthy and no problems at all. Here is my story.

Back in August of 2017 I had unprotected sex with a female which I believe may be the cause of all these problems. Anyways I felt a burning sensation the next day  while going to the bathroom so a week later I went to see the doctor and it turned out I was positive for  chlamydia so I was prescribed the generic medication to cure it (I can list a full medication list later on if it will help.)

So I took the medication for the desired time but still felt a burning sensation so I went back to the doctor and was prescribed a stronger medication for longer. I took the medication as directed but still felt a burning sensation when going to the bathroom. So I ended up getting re-tested for chlamydia to make sure the meds were working and everything came back negative but i still have a burning sensation and weak urine stream and sometime hard to go number 1.

This is where it gets confusing. Somewhere between October-December of 2017 I started feeling very abnormal. I literally woke up one morning feeling extremely tired, like my eyes feeling super heavy, and I Just can't feel awake at all, and I have very very low to no energy whatsoever and my stools when I go the bathroom are very runny, sometimes green, sometimes really dark and I always have to wipe a lot. Its never just a normal poop. My stomach is constantly bloated. Please remember I literally just woke up one day feeling like this and these issues ive listed above have been going on for almost 2 years now!

Some days I feel like gouging my eyes out because the heaviness and tiredness of my eyes is just so annoying and unbearable that I don't know what to do. I just want to feel normal again. Same when i go to the bathroom. My energy level is so low I could literally sleep 12-16 hours a day.

Anyways the doctor refereed me to a urologist because of the on going problems. So a couple weeks later I went the urologist and told him my issues and he decided to run a tube up my urethra to see if he could help find out what was wrong and he ended up finding a lot of redness and inflammation around my prostate so a couple weeks later he did a biopsy of my prostate and ended up with the diagnosis of CYSTITIS GLANDULARIS so I ended up taking anti-inflammation meds for this and none of the meds ended up working as I still have the burning sensation to this day. So more about the stools and tiredness problems.

I went back to my primary care doctor and updated him all the things I have been feeling so I got my poop tested and numerous other blood tests and testosterone tests and so on. Everything came back negative. Everything.

He ended up referring me to a gastroenterologist. Please be aware from time I went to my primary care doctor to the time he referred to me a  gastroenterologist I had taken countless different types medication to help with stool problems and nothing helped.

Anyways I went to the gastroenterologist and told him my issues and we ended up doing a biopsy of my colon and stomach and came out with the diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori  so I was prescribed  meds to help the situation and nothing helped whatsoever. I still feel the exact same as day 1.

This is mainly what I feel everyday. Very very low energy. If im not at work you will find me in bed having a hard time keeping my eyes open. They feel so heavy, and burn. There is a strange heaviness in my eyes. like i cant get them feel awake ever! I am still bloated and have loose stools every single day. Nothing is working. I have no sex drive at all. Ive ruined countless of potential relationships because i literally feel croggy and like **** 24/7! I don't know how much more I can take. I don't feel alive anymore. I feel like the well being of an 80 yr old trapped in 27 year olds body.

Sorry for the rant. I just want to feel normal again! Thats it. Ive been prescribed anti-depressants and those do not help. I know I am not depressed. Just my overall mood is **** 24/7 because of the things I have mentioned above. If anyone could provide some insight or point me in the right direction I would be forever grateful!!!

Thank you
