He did say I could just stop it...I don't know if it was because I was on a low dose? 25 mg.

If you just started it, yes, you can stop it but if you have been taking it for a while, you need to ramp down.

I really think you are just still pretty rocky right now, hon.

I never take anything to stop the D when I get it (which is rare now), I want whatever is giving me grief OUT :lol: , but if you need to take something, Pepto Bismal is okay.

Just don't freak when you see the black stool that results. It's just what happens from that stuff.

He has ruled out other bowel diseases, right?

Rifaxim for 10 days. I have thought about asking him to treat it again, although he has never done the breath test for it. Diagnosed based on symptoms.

Okay, so he treated it without testing for it. No follow up?

But it was an antibiotic, so now you need PRObiotics. okay?

Maybe you are having some die off?

Stay the course, hon. Drink a lot of water so you do not get dehydrated. Avoid too much sugary stuff like brownies for now and if you still have problems, go back and see him.

Hope you feel better in a day or two. Periods can wreak extra havoc for sure.

Well I had a follow up appointment and I told him I had felt better on the antibiotic. I'll give it a day or two and then contact him again I guess. Thanks for your help!

Wish I had more answers for you, but you are right in wanting to make sure you're on the right path here. Give him a call.

I hope you feel better soon!

    • Annual celiac antibody testing is, in my opinion (and based on what celiac researchers have published), is critical, especially for a 12 year old.  Life is going to get harder for her.  Peer pressure is huge (I have a 15 year old daughter), and remaining diet compliant can be tough.   In Dr. Fasano's, Gluten Freedom, he discusses a young patient who became ill in high school after being gluten free for years.  His parents were perplexed.  Dr. Fasano took the young man aside and he confessed that while on a date, he didn't want to bring up his celiac disease.  So, he ate pizza.  He was too embarrassed to tell his parents.   My daughter does not have celiac disease.  She was first tested two years ago.  Since she is symptom free, is not anemic and her other lab work is fine, we'll wait to test her in another year.  It all depends on the patient, but every few years, testing is recommended for all undiagnosed first-degree relatives.   It certainly sounds like your younger children should be screened.   I wish you both well!      
    • Perhaps you should consider asking for a GI referral.  You might just skip the blood tests and go directly to an endoscopy/biopsies while you are still consuming gluten.  It is the "gold" standard for a celiac diagnosis anyway!   Here's the deal with going gluten free.  You can do it.  It costs nothing, but you must give it six months or longer.  You'd need to think like a celiac, but it can be done!  I'll tell you my tale.  My hubby went gluten-free 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP/PCP and my allergist.  After a year of mistakes and learning, he got well.  It worked!  Thirteen years later, I was formally diagnosed.  (It was a shock as I was only anemic at the time.)  Hubby would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical.  I must say, it's nice to see those lab results.  It really helped me adhere to the diet in the beginning too.   So, you know your medical situation.  You must do what's best for you!   I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I'm sure going to have a long talk with my doctor.  Then I'll find a new one that will support me and make sure that my daughter and I both have the proper testing done yearly.  
    • also:  glutendude - i don't get it.  shouldn't it be glutenfreedude?  lolz i eat out few and far between.  most of the times i've been glutened it's been eating out.  this weekend i'm getting my bacon cheeseburger on at red robin  i always get my 'good' waitress - lucky, i guess, paula takes good care of me   and i will eat at bonefish but they have a limited 'safe' menu.  look for places that have the 'GiG'  training they know their stuff.  mellow mushroom, melting pot, california pizza kitchen, pf changs are all supposed to be trained that way.  they know to avoid cc and change their gloves, etc.  
    • I have Common variable immune deficiency (CVID) which has impaired my IgA and my IgG. I have infusions monthly for immunoglobulins. I had a blood test for celiac which showed negative however, I have nearly every celiac symptom. Everything else I have been tested for and believe me I have been tested. Kidneys, Gallbladder, emptying studies, and on and on have all been o.k.    I did go partially gluten free once a long while ago and I did feel better. I wonder if I just go gluten free if it would make a big difference.
