What exactly will a GI specialist do? Are there tests and procedures I should expect?

Posted by keldean6

I am being referred to a GI specialist.  I have not been feeling well for over a month and a half now now after returning from a trip to China and South Korea in early July.  I was sick over there, taking immodium, pepto bismol.  Upon returning I went to the doctor who prescribed ciprofloxacin and suggested pepcid and melatonin.  However, after all of my test came back (bloodwork, stool sample), she said that I did not have any type of infection - everything is healthy.  What will the GI specialist do or be able to tell me?  Is it worth going?  I'm just tired of my stomach hurting and feeling nausceous at times.   Thanks in advance
