My name is ana, im 25 years old. And heres my story so far:
Sorry if my english is not perfect, is not my first language*
So a month ago i had a mild fever and felt sick so i thought i had gotten covid and started with medication for it, that night i had a watery bowel movemebt (which is not normal for me), few days later my throat was swollen i noticed i had a lot of aphtous ulcers (thats not really abnormal for me, i had got them since i was a kid as well as some family members, sometimes when i get sick or stressed i get 4 or 5 at the same time but never in my throat)
And some days later i started with a severe diarrhea (9-10 times a day) very yellowish, loss of appetite and nauseas, i finished my meds for covid and i felt a little better ( i was on a LOT OF MEDS, including antibiotics) the loss of appetite and nauseas went away, and the diarrhea was a little better too ( less frequency like 4 or 5 times a day, and less urgency but still watery and yellowish)
They thought i had parasytes and put me on flagyl and felt i little better but after i finished that i was still having diarrhea
I went to a GI last week and he said one of the meds i was on for covid causes a lot of adiarrhea as well and nauseas(colchicine) and along with all the antibiotics i took, destroyed my good bacteria and that was why i was having diarrhea.
He put me on some medication, for the diarrhea and some probiotics but my stools are still really soft (2-3 a day i guess because of the medication) and still yellowish
I feel that im not getting better, i havent had a normal stool since a month ago.
Another than that, i have never had tummy troubles except for two time like year when i experience contipation, but with some changes in diet/hydration clear up.
