Had diarrhea. Negative stool sample. Pain in right side. Any other tests to be done?

Hello- I m 58 year old woman in good health. I have had diarrhea for over 3 weeks now. I went to my doctor, I gave them a stool sample came back negative and that s all that was done. I have slight pain on my right side especially when I eat and the diarrhea continues. I have never had this before. Are there other tests I should have done? Thank for your reply.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Diarrhoea lasting nearly a month needs several investigations.
The most important will be to have Colonoscopy (Lower Gastro Intestinal Endoscopy)
You will also need a few blood tests.
See a specialist - Gastro Enterologist.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
