Doctor

A:   Thank you for contacting ask the doctor. There is a possibility of a parasitic infestation or a bacterial infection. A stool examination, blood smear , CBC are some recommended test. I recommened a visit to the physician and discussion of your condition. Treatment would depend on the cause and may include antibiotics or anti protozoals. Avoid the meat for a while till you feel healthy again. Hope this information was useful.
