so i tested positive for bacterial overgrowth, took long enough--i had the breath test in september, some of you may remember my doctor "vaguely remembered me being positive and i may need antibiotics"   well i have to go to see him today (why couldn't he call in the perscription?) and i have A TON of questions, like "why did this take so long?"  "do you realize that my job is on the line?"
oh yeah, since i missed so much work they are wondering if i can physically do my job... great more stress please...
so i am cool with the whole ibs thang-and taking care and watching my diet, but i have gotten worst during november, lots of D PLUS formed stools up to 11 times a day (yes, D in the morning then 11 formed/loose poops--all in one day!  my tushie hurts!!  yeah baby wipes!!)  plus the muscle aches, tingling pain in my limbs and exhaustion...  i talked to a P.A. friend of mine and she said that with the antibiotics i should find relief, but still have the ibs.  so does this mean i will finally have a good day?
anybody out there have an overgrowth before?
take care,
what would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?

Hi Bunny,
I'm glad you are finally getting some where with the docs....
I don't have experience with bacterial overgrowth, BUT I suggest making sure you continually use probiotics with (or after for sure!) your round of antibiotics.
Please keep us posted on how you are doing.
