I had C-Diff twice, that is one nasty infection! I was in the hospital for 5 days the first time, and of course being stubborn, refused the hospitalization the 2nd time. Once you've had this, you never ever forget it. And, of course, had a reaction to Flagyl, so I had to use Vancomyacin. Thank goodness it worked!

Thanks once again, pf4.

Yikes. No wonder they call it C "difficile". I know I just had a stool sample taken for this which came back negative. But from this article it sounds like if I had it I sure would have known!
36 year old mother of a fabulous toddler named Mara. Symptoms began after Mara's birth, with widespread pain/stiffness and mucus in stool. Had seen blood in stool for years prior but believe (and still suspect) hemorrhoids and/or fissures for this particular manifestation.

STARTED LOW DOSE NALTREXONE SEPT. 26TH www.lowdosenaltrexone.org. Also see: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez?db=pubmed&cmd=Retrieve&list_uids=17222320

Diagnosed with Crohn's July 2007. The only visible areas of inflammation via scope were my stomach, rectum, and somewhere else in my colon (was too out of it to hear where, exactly). Pill cam, SBFT, CT Scan all were normal.

TRYING MY BEST TO PRECLUDE FUTURE COMPLICATIONS.

On Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) since late July and seeing improvement in "output" quality and hopefully therefore absorption. Taking SCD legal supplements: B vitamins, Folonic Acid 800mg, EnZym Complete DPP IV Aid by Kirkman, and Saccaromyces Boulardii (a probiotic yeast).

Current biggest complaints: LRQ fullness and burning now gone. Gastritis symptoms are also quiet now. What was horrible right hip and low back pain has subsided about 60%. I'm pretty much feeling normal since the SCD/Supplements/Naltrexone but the fatigue still occurs and I in no way think I do not have more symptoms in my future.
