I came down with a bad, bad case of strep throat and after a trip to the clinic and the ER, I had to go on a round of omnicef and then another, stronger antibiotic. Even though the second drug is making me sick (headache, nausea, dizzy), I have noticed over the course of this that my upper mid-abdomen bloating is greatly reduced. The pain in my lower right side it also diminished a bit.
I have repreatedly asked my doctor about the use of antibiotics to treat CD and he has basically laughed at me each time, saying it doesn't help. Has anyone else had good luck with the use of antibiotics to control or diminish CD symptoms?
