Welcome at HCM
I am Dr Saad Sultan and will be answering your query. I have read and understood your health concerns.
Loose stools with mucus in it needs to be investigated. The important thing here is to rule out any absorption problem .
Endoscopy is a good option and will give real time image of the organs as well as opportunity to take the biopsy of the intestine to rule out any pathology.
It also tells us about the any ulcer or inflammation if present there.
You may need to use Omeprazole 40mg daily before breakfast to relieve your Heart burn. You may also get relief from antacid syrup like mucaine ...avoid black pepper.
Stay calm and follow your doctor advise and strictly follow the pre requisites of endoscopy.
Do share me the endoscopy results.
Feel free to ask any time.
Hope it helps

Detailed Answer:

I appreciate your follow up...
Continue using lamsoprazole and fluxetine. It is not mandatory that inflammation of the inside lining of the gut always comes in blood tests.
Proceed with endoscopy and share me details.
