Thanks for using health care magic for posting your query.

I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.

However I would require a couple of more details to help you in answering your query in a better justified way.

1. What is the reason that you are taking Zoton regularly
2. Do you take alcohol or.smoke
3. Have you investigated yourself until now?

Hope to hear from you at your earliest convenience.

Brief Answer:
It could be GERD

Detailed Answer:
From your description it appears that you did have an infection.
You have taken flagyl after which infection got controlled. However flagyl is harsh on the gastric PH and can cause nausea and gastro esophageal reflux disease.
You are already taking Zoton. Probably you need to shift this medicine to either pantorazole or rantac and to treat the acidity vigorously.
If the symptoms still persist then probably you need to get your stools examined under a microscope.
Hope that helps
