Hi everyone-

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:

-Thyroid: normal
-CBC: normal
-Liver: Normal
-Parasite/Ova/blood in stool: negative

Things I've tried:

-Parasite Cleanse
-Candida Cleanse
-Supplementing with fiber (makes symptoms worse)
-B12 injections

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.

My Diet:

Is good..

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.
