Abdominal pain, D, mucus, bloating, chills, sweats, low grade fever, fatigue, restless nights. I'm recovering from it right now. Let me know if you have any questions.
Just finished prednisone taper of 40mg in 6 weeks.  We'll see if it works.

Yes, c-diff is very hard to eradicate. You usually need strong antibiotics, and s. boulardii (a probiotic) is very good too.

doc is having me tested just to rule it out...he said it's becoming VERY common these days. i've been having a pretty bad flare for 8 months or so now...he wants to make sure he's not missing something silly before we move on to Remicade since Pred, 6-mp etc. were doing nothing this time...
