Hello from JA

Great question

Right now you need stool samples tested for parasites.

It sounds like you are over any acute illness, but you might have chronic parasite infection, such as from Giardia.

This would be easily treatable with the correct antibiotics.

OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.
Otherwise please choose a positive rating . But, still come back if you need to…think of something later, etc. Bonuses are appreciated.
