Re: Increasingly getting more sick :c bloating, pain, constipation, nausea, fatigue..

Welcome to the boards. Have you seen a gastroenterologist? That is a must. Please do some research on Crohn's, an inflammatory bowel disorder that is autoimmune and affects the right lower quadrant where the swelling was seen on one of your exams. I believe you need to have some blood tests for inflammation and a small bowel follow-thru xray to check the last pasrt of small bowel, ileum, for inflammation. It would be a good idea to have a stool done for parasites as well just to be sure your previous infection is gone. The small bowel xray would show evidence of celiac disease as well if that is part of the problem. The 2 can co-exist. I hope you can locate a good gastro Dr who will take this seriously and get it figured out!
