Advise eval: Hi, Sorry to hear you've been suffering from continued symptoms. Parasitic infections in the US (unless you recently traveled outside the country) are incredibly rare to see. That said, your symptoms are a little unusual if it was just "food poisoning". It may be reasonable at this point to get some stool testing but advise that you have a more thorough initial eval before testing. Hope this helps
