What can I do if I have chronic diarrhea even after getting a colonoscopy?

This question was asked in Bitter Creek, Wyoming on 07/12/2012.
I have had Chronic Daily Diarrhea for about ten years now, seen many doctors and have had several million test done, and out of everything I have found that I have food allergies/intolerance to every food out there and with an upper and lower colonoscopy, there was nothing to be found, my stomach and digestive tract are in good health. I have had to result to taking Imodium like candy in order to live, and not live in my bathroom. Is taking so much Imodium over a LONG period of time harmful to my digestive system and is there anything else I can take that will help with the diarrhea?
