does anyone know what could be wrong with me? i submitted a stool sample to my gi yesterday morning, but heard nothing back all day so i guess i will have to struggle through the weekend. i have already missed three days of work & can't keep missing time like this.
tuesday night i came down with a fever & started having liquid yellow diarrhea (literally, i am peeing out my bum right now...). i've been going to the bathroom once every 1 - 2 hours & i've also been a little nauseous from time to time. my pee was also a very dark yellow color (not normal for me). this continued until thursday morning. friday afternoon my poop switched to a liquid green color. it is still that way now. although my fever finally went away friday morning & my pee has switched back to mostly clear, or a very light yellow color which is more normal for me.
i am not seeing blood or anything, but these are definitely not normal bowel movements.
tried a cortiform enema on wednesday night & it did nothing. i am only on asacol right now. i did take a vsl #3 packet on thursday & friday night so i'm not sure if this is causing the change in poo color?
does anyone know what could be wrong with me or what i should be doing? all i had to eat yesterday was half a banana, some dry cheerios, a piece of toast with unpasteurized honey on it, and a couple spoonfuls of white rice. i've also been drinking a bit of diet ginger ale here & there to help with the nausea.so i have no idea where all the bathroom trips are coming from. the nurse at my gi's office suggested i could take imodium if i wanted some relief but i'm not so sure thats a good idea? i just came off pred so i don't know if i'm flaring, if i just have a really bad flu as i sat beside someone who was sick on monday night, if i have c diff, or some kind of food poisoning. i have never been like this before.
asacol - 6x 800mg every morning
cortifoam enemas / pentasa enemas - i try to use them semi-regularly.
calcium & vitamin d supplements daily.
