Hi guys, it's been a while.

I took everyone's suggestions about Activia, and it worked wonders. I can eat normally again, and constipation is much better. However, a new problem has arised. Close to 2 weeks into taking the Activia, I have been tired and swear I could sleep the day away if I really had to. Do you guys know what is going on by any chance? Thanks!

Check for low grad infection. Maybe you were just feeling so good you wore yourself out. LOL.

I know it sounds stupid, lol. For the last three weeks, my hearing has been worse; my eyesight normal, and red ears on top of that. It's not fatigue- I don't go through the day feeling overtly tired, just constantly sluggish, and my cognitive responses are lower. Just wanted to know if the Activia could have anything to do with it, but now I'm starting to think it's something more serious...

Sounds like you should see an ENT Dr. and check out the ears. Are you sensitive to milk products?

As Canyon mentioned, you might have a milk allergy (separate from lactose intolerance). Of course, this is also the season for colds and junk, so you may just be trying to fight off some sort of cold. I'm bad about coming down partway with a cold and just have it linger for weeks. At one point in time, I couldn't fiugre out why I was tired, couldn't focus, was making a lot of mistakes at work, etc., until I look my temperature and realized that I had a low-grade fever. I kept checking it and I kept having a fever. Apparently I had had a fever for three weeks; it was low enough that I didn't notice at first, but it was draining me. I finally went to see a doctor and got some antibiotics and that cleared it up right away. The doctor said that since I had had this for so long, it almost certainly wasn't a viral cold, but a bacterial one, because they're harder to get rid of.

Yeah, but I'm still confused. I took Activia for three weeks and was fine, so shouldn't that cover the bacterial issue? For the life of me I can't think of what to do next.

No, it does not take care of a bacterial infection. It just puts good bacteria into your intestines. It doesn't treat an infection in your sinuses or ear canal, or tonsils or anywhere else you can set up an infection.

Just go see a regular doctor and tell him you're feeling lathargic, your ears seem stopped up (because you can't hear as well), etc. A lot of times colds and other things going around have a certain "look" to them. You may not understand what your symtpoms are, but your doctor may very well say, oh, yes, this is something that's going around because everyone's having the same thing; here take this for it because it seems to work.

I got viral arthritis last year, which even my mother, a nurse, had never heard of. But then my husband got it, and when we were on a re-enacting vaction and he was complaining about it to someone else, that man said he'd had the same thing earlier in the winter. So weird stuff gets around, but your doctor should have already seen it and have a pretty good idea of how to treat it.
