Hello all,

I am sick and I need help. For some time now, about four weeks, I have been sick off and on. It seems like one day I feel great and the next day or so I really feel horrible. Here are some of the symptoms I have been experiencing: nasuea, violent and constant diahrrea, upset stomach, and abdominal pain.

I have been to the doctor's office about this condition twice and both times they seemed totally stumped. I have done some research and it seems like I have all the symptoms of Giardia. I do not know much about this condition but all my symptoms match.

Now, I would also like to note that the last time I visited the doctor they put me on Flagyl and a medicine for IBS. I understand that Flagyl is the best antiobiotic for giardia. I have been on it for about three days now and I have seen no improvements. Has anyone had giardia? If you have, could you tell me some of the symptoms you have experienced? Does anyone else have any ideas of what my condition could be?

Any and all help would be appreciated. Thank you!
