Hi Stacey
It could be caused by a chronic infection (parasite) or irritable bowel or malabsorbtion. Rather let your doctor send away a stool sample to the lab for testing and if needed, refer you to a gastroenterologist for a full examination.
Taking probiotics three times a day and Fybogel once daily may help for the watery consistency.
