Hi everybody. I'm new here and i want to mention to you to make sure your symptoms are caused by IBS and not C Diff. Many doctors will misdiagnosed the 2 specially since C Diff is less common. C Diff usually happens as a result of long term antibiotic use. If you have cramps, bloating, diarrhea and have been on antibiotics for the last month make sure you mention that to your doctor.
Just giving you a heads up because my doctor tried to diagnosed me with ibs but the cramps were so bad that i had to get a second opinion. Thank god i am not fighting c diff anymore but 1 our of 5 c diff sufferers will develop IBS and i think i am one of them, and that's why i'm here. Good luck and take care!!
