What causes flaky and loosely formed stools?

hello doctor, ive had flakey, loosely formed stools for more than a year now. once in seven times i get close to normal stools...besides that i get vague sort of a pain now in my abdomen and cramps at feels like its getting all itchy 25 yrs old, male..offlate lower back pain has also started bothering me..i had an antibiotic course for hpylori last year. But after that things havent improved. it has only got worse. my stomach is constantly growling, feels like its full of acid or somethng. im having certain medicines before and after breakfast and dinner called colspa retard( mebeverine retard capsules) and stablon(tianeptine tablets). but nothing seems to be helping. i have already been through a colonoscopy test and it came out normal. im in need of help but the doctors just dont think its bad enough to put me through any tests of the digestive sysytem. what should i do?
