He gave me a bunch of samples of that med you mentioned..the Xifaxan. He said it wouldn't give me the side affects, which is good. I was really dizzy on Flagyl and also had the metal taste. I didn't care much though because of how good I felt otherwise..lol.. I'd be dizzy any day to avoid that other stuff. I haven't started the Xifaxan though..am waiting until after the tests so it doesn't hide anything going on. (if there is anything)
IF it were Crohn's, what would cause the bacterial overgrowth...I mean what specific complication of Crohn's leads to that....?

Wow...that was super fast. THe actual test...I was expecting at least an hour or more. They even commented on how fast it went..does this mean anything? From the time the barium was in my stomach to the end of my small bowel was less than 15 minutes. Radiologist didn't see evidence of Crohn's (kind of thought this would be the case though) and asked me questions related to celiac....I also had a genetic blood test today for CLA something or other to test for Celiac..
Ugh...Im glad Im so "healthy" but wish I felt that way too. Instead I feel opposite...like Im dying of something horrible. (ok, maybe a tad dramatic.)
Now to wait for the next step...or the official results or whatever!
