Hi

Thanks for posting your query

Your history is suggestive of some problem with the biliary system

It would be better if you go for a Liver Function panel and an abdominal Ultrasound and get back to me

Hope this helps
Get back with the reports and I will sort your issues

the Liver Function panel came back normal and so did the abdominal ultrasound. The pain in the legs puzzles me : could it be a thyroid or autoimmune problem?

Hi

Thanks for the information

I would suggest you observe for a day or two and if the color of stool does not change you need to go for the reports again

If the color changes it could be non specific digestive problem

In the mean time add a probiotic twice a day for ten to fourteen days and an antacid

Hope this helps
Am available for followup queries

the color of stool has not changed for weeks; I already am taking the antacid and probiotic for 2 weeks; here in Montreal, it takes over a year to see a grastroenterologist, and given that i have been sick for a year already on and off, I am getting worried and anxious to find a solution. Any word of advice?

Thanks a lot,
