Hi, Hippi. I was really hoping you would have started to feel better and be getting some relief from the diarrhea. I agree that it was just a virus, I would think it would be letting up. Please check back with your doc and don't forget to drink more water! Good luck,

Hi Hippi, sorry you are still feeling bad. I think you need to talk to the gi and get some tests like I had. I was surprised at how seriously they took it and how quickly they got me in. I did have a red patch on my duodenum which they biopsied and have no idea yet what it is but there was something there and got blood tested for celiac. That can be a very bad condition, I didn't realize that. Anyway, still struggling myself and you are in my thoughts and prayers and I hope that you get to the doc soon. Dicyclomine helped me alot (Bentyl) with diarrhea and pain. Also, rheumie says if stools float, may be pancreas and might need over the counter enzymes for me. I'm half in half, sometimes does, sometimes doesn't, but I don't think they will hurt. Take care and I hope you feel better soon and don't forget the warm baths.
Love, Marji
