Tummy trouble

hello anyone who has any suggestions, I have been going from doctor to doctor for the last 2 month's with stomach issues with no results, so if any one can help me I am in getting desperate. Since the beginning of January 2014, I have had extreme diarrhea it has been so bad that I have to stay very close to a toilet it hits within minutes of eating and it does not matter what I eat, I have just had a colonoscopy that came back all good and so far my blood work looks good so I am clueless and it seems my doctors are to, I don't know what to do next.

Is there anyone in your family with food intolerances or a history of celiac disease? Check to find out because both conditions can have hereditary components and might be the cause of your discomfort.

Did your doc take biopsies during the colonoscopy? Did you personally read the results of the doc's reports and the pathologist's report? If not, get a copy and read it. Sometimes there are small comments in those reports that may suggest something should be followed up on that doctor's may overlook.

Have you tried probiotics? They're not hype, and they possibly might help, so try them. There are a number of good brands on the market that might give you a hand until the underlying cause of the malady is found.
