Cindygal--It's possible that you may have picked up a parasite if your drinking water wasn't treated or boiled. They will probably take a stool sample and look for evidence. If the sample is positive, they will probably treat you with Flagyl or something similar. Glad you made an appointment with your doctor. Good luck. Hope you feel better soon.

The first thing they do when you go in for nonstop D is a Stool analysis. I had to take in a stool sample once. I had to catch it in a platic container and drop it off at the lab. I think they checked for O&P (ova and parasites). Then I think they do a culture to see if any bacteria grows. They do a culture if they suspect C. Diff. (a bacterial overgrowth usually caused by antibiotics).By the way, mine was negative. Just IBS.
