@jensgrdnce @peggyella @airey2 @hgarm and others may have some thoughts for you.
kidprodigy (interesting username, are you a child prodigy?) You ask about infectious agents. Have your doctors considered H. Pylori?

I will review the discussion thread you mentioned as it seems quite relevant to my situation!
"KidProdigy" was a nickname originally meant as a joke among my Texas Hold 'Em poker buddies and me. I was much younger than many of the other guys, but still cleaned house in charity poker tournaments we all competed in.
Yes, I tested negative for H. Pylori via the stool Ag EIA. My GI doctor still treated me with the quadruple therapy (i.e. Amoxicillin, Tetracycline, Pepto Bismol and Omeprazole) anyway, but it didn't bring me any relief.
