Ok. I have had diarrhea for a month or two now. It is on and off, on and off. So, as soon as I think it is getting better it comes right back. My son also has the same problem. It is very watery and has an awful foul odor. Like something rotten. My son's doctor thought that it was "Giardia lamblia" but the nurse called after they done blood work and said everything looked fine. Has anyone ever had this problem and/or symptoms and what did your doctor prescribe and/or say??? Please contact me at juliaholt@bellsouth.net or on Yahoo messenger at seximamacita250@yahoo.com Thanks in advance if anyone knows anything or can help me out at all!

  • Your doctor should have had you do "stool" tests for Ova and parasites and a stool culture.
