Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Since you have the symptoms from quite some time and also weight loss , we need to take this further by a procedure called colonoscopy , this will give us an idea about the changes happening internally in the intestines and the mucosa, we can look for any growth , tissue changes , blood , and any malabsorption , tumors,etc

This is a safe test and hardly any complications ,it is surely recommended in your case and I will ask you to go ahead for it, so that we can find the exact cause for your symptoms and treat it specifically
