Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 month ago):
watery brown stools approximately 2 hours after eating; no abdominal cramping or nausea; active bowel sounds start in right upper quadrant; no blood noticed in stool
From this study (3 months ago):
I believe alot of my symptoms are related but after seeing 7 different specialists and them running many different tests I still don't have a diagnosis. Many of the tests are abnormal but nothing seems to fit completely together. My gastroenterologist is referring me to a surgeon for severe gastro reflux that can't be controlled with medication. I can't take the ferrous sulfate because of nausea.

I'm not sure what state you live in but I have researched this same issue and THC the active ingredient in Marijuana and a few other active chemicals will calm the stomach and increase appetite. I'm not a user but I am considering it under medical advice.
