Red face drank fountain water in Rome.. HELP!!

To cut a long story short I went on holiday to Rome with a complete tool in 2006, during which he was topping up water bottles from the FOUNTAINS (not drinking fountains, just to be clear- the likes of the Trevi and smaller, the kind likely to be filled with urine, vomit and pigeon excrement..)

Not long after this I was diagnosed with 'CFS' and have since gone on to develop Crohn's disease. I am still having trouble shifting the weakness and fatigue, and the diarrhoea, despite treatment.

It occurred to me that at some point I could have drank from his bottle, or he could have filled mine with this filthy water. The NHS have been useless when it comes to testing, so I'm wondering.. What, if anything, might I have picked up from drinking this? I'm convinced something, possibly parasitic, remains untreated. What sort of things should I be tested for?
