Get colonoscopy...: Loose stools/change in bowel habits for a month duration without logical explanation after stool analysis requires further investigation. The next best test would be a colonoscopy. In the meantime, and you may have already done this, but try taking a probiotic supplement e.g. Align, vsl#3. Good luck!
