I tested positive for C. Diff twice since November and have been on antibiotic medication called Flagyl for it. Now the doctor says according to my latest stool sample, the colon infection is gone. Yet I still have diarrhea. I still have cramps. I still get nauseated. What’s wrong with me? Do I have never-ending irritable bowel syndrome that’s never gotten better?
I am just as active as before and eating the same, yet in the past month and a half I’ve gained 20 pounds, 5 of them within about a week. How am I gaining so much weight? Why am I bloated and constantly feeling fat? Is it all because of stressdrop sheet?
How can I have diarrhea and weight gain at the same time? The symptoms contradict each other. Most people with chronic diarrhea and infections like C. Diff lose weight, not pack it on suddenlypublic relationship.
I am so discouraged. Sick of seeing my gasteroenterologist who barely speaks English. Sick of literally crapping my pants because there’s nothing I can do to stop it. Sick of feeling tired all the time. Sick of being so moody and emotional. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?
So many months of my life are going down the drain, lost to this stupid sickness. Why can't they just put me in the hospital until they can diagnose what the problem is, because it's interfering with my daily life! I can't try a medication for two weeks, then check back in with the doctor every two months! Two months is too long when you're living the way I am. They need to figure this out ASAP, not keep putting me on the back burner or using me as a guinea pig for drugshome storage!
