Diagnosis HELP

I have been having stomach problems since 2007 (upper left side pain, green stools, night sweats, restless leg, insomnia, nausea, fatigue). In 2011, after 4 different doctors, I was diagnosed with a Blastocystis Hominis parasite. This doctor sent me to see a gastrologist, who proceeded to tell me that everyone has this parasite. I went to another gastrologist, who put me on Flagyl and then Alinia. After several cycles of the antibiotics, my left side pain went away; however, I started having severe food sensitivities.

In 2014, I am experiencing all the same problems again except now I am not thinking clearly, not speaking correctly (difficult finding the right words or how to keep on topic when asked questions) not able to focus, decreased libido, low stress tolerance, and a weird sore throat (almost like the lump in your throat feeling one got in childhood when your feelings got hurt). The gastrologist isn't taking me serious because my blood did not diagnose me with Crohns or Colitis. and I am already in the poor house from all unnecessary and pricey tests with no diagnosis.

Due to my years of not feeling well, I am always sad/depressed, tired, and lack ambition. I do not want to socialize -- I am just barely making it to work.

Please help. I've changed everything within my power, but it is not doing me much good.
