GP put me on 7 days of amoxicillin for this sinus/chest cold that has hung around for over 4 weeks.  He wanted me on probiotics, but I told him how those made me feel worse (past threads I talked about it).  He asked if I would at least eat some Greek yogurt.

 

I hadn’t tried it because I thought the consistency would gross me out….I really liked it.  But, I had limited brand/flavor choices in the cafeteria today.  Strawberry-banana was the only flavor I liked.  Problem is it had very small pieces of the fruit in it.  I always had yogurt without whole fruit or it at least had large pieces I could avoid.  Anyone know of a brand that has strawberry or blueberry or cherry with large or no whole fruit in it?

 

Also, had complained of a burning tongue in the past during the early part of my flare up.  It had mostly gone away.  But it is back in flames after the yogurt (I was eating regular yogurt during flare).  I am wondering if my tongue does not like the cultures?  It stings like crazy right now!

Doc says most of my problems are side effects of my resection ('90) and my disease is doing GREAT and no sign of a repeat fistula. Meds now to control the lack of TI and gallbladder....happy to be out and about. OOOpppps...first big flare up in 11 years (10/2012) - but still trying to get back to "my normal".

I think you can get plain yogurt in big tubs and add what you want to it. I'm glad you like it! It doesn't make my tongue burn, but it makes my stomach hurt really bad.

There are a lot of different brands of Greek style yogurt available in grocery stores these days. You should try a few and see what you like. I prefer the unsweetened ones and use it in place of sour cream a lot.

Thanks Wendy...I had my dentist check for thrush a while ago and he said none. I really think the burning is related to the yogurt now---it burnt yesterday and this morning. It didn;t burn for quite some time and burnt a lot November through Jaunary. That all coincides with when I was eating yogurt as it was soft food.
Found a lemon yogurt I will try this weekend when the tongue stops burning as a test.

Habs, it makes my mouth burn too and my daughter says it bothers hers also. I also can't do probiotics as they make things worse. I think my body thinks the good bacteria is baaad.

I've found the Chobani (or is it Ghobani?) at Walmart that's plain.

Greek yogurt makes me flare like no ones business. I wish I could eat it because I love the taste of it but no way Jose! If you are looking for a plain greek yogurt, check out Whole Foods.
