I too have many of these issues but they became much more acute 4 weeks ago. I had been eating a lot of fruits and vegetables and salads, particularly romaine lettuce at salad bars. I also seemed to get pretty serious diarrhea that I had never seen before. There is an unresolved 16 state cyclospora outbreak going on that is being traced to lettuce in two states. It is unresolved in the other 14 as far as I know. Prior outbreaks have been traced to herbs, strawberries, and other produce. Anyway, I went to the doc twice and had two different stool samples done and they did not test for cyclospora either time. I was very mad b/c I asked for them to do that. Not sure how long your diarreah lasted, but if it lasts for more than a day it is possible it is a food-related issue. Until you figure this out, maybe don’t eat salad from delis. I am staying away from all produce that I don’t personally wash myself until they figure out the source of the cyclospora outbreak.
