I quit smoking 8 months ago. About 4 weeks after I quit smoking it felt like I was getting the flu. These symptoms have persisted since. Extreme fatigue that varies.. I could wake up and feel 70%, I could wake up and feel 30% and this will continue through the day.
Tests I've had:
-Parasite/Ova/blood in stool: negative
Things I've tried:
-Supplementing with fiber (makes symptoms worse)
I've tried eliminating gluten from my diet.. attempted to look for trends (what makes my symptoms worse or better).. can't find a trend.
No processed foods or sugars, rather I stick to whole foods- fruits, veggies, juicing. I drink plenty of water.
Weird thing.. I just purchased some imodium, and it made my stools halfway/nearly normal.. The reason I purchased the imodium, is that I've noticed the foods I eat are passing 8 hours after I ingest them..
My stools like odd. sometimes whole pieces of food, stringy pieces, weird black and white things, no blood.
I hate to be gross, but I have attached a somewhat blurry : ) picture of my stools for you to view.
Please help. I am in dire need of a diagnoses, this fatigue, brain fog, weird stools, and sore neck are killing me.
Thanks for your help.
