Usually when you have a C-diff infection there is a very foul odor to your stool as well as the number of times you are going. I've had it twice, years ago. But a few years ago I was deathly ill from some sort of virus and my God my poo smelled awful. When I got to the hospital the odor got me a private room because they didn't want to take a chance of infecting anyone else in case it was C-diff. After they ran the tests I was clear, but I was happy to take the private room!
