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

Thanks for chatting w me about this. :-)

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!

What sort of digestive enzymes do you use? Just curious, something I was looking at.

Thanks!

    • Meredith, this is very true. A colonoscopy is for diagnosis of the lower intestine, endoscopy for the upper intestine.  How did your doctor interpret the tests? I suggest you read the link Cycling Lady gave you because it contains a lot of good information. 
    • Sorry, but this product (supplement) is not even certified gluten free.   Seems odd that a product geared to Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance would not take the extra step of getting certified.   I guess I am a Nervous Nellie, especially after the reports that several probiotics were contaminated with gluten.   https://celiac.org/blog/2015/06/probiotics-your-friend-or-foe/
    • Thank you for posting that. I've had a lot of that bloodwork done and everything is normal. At the peak of this belly bug I had blood work done and my white count was fine. I think it's just my health anxiety scaring me into thinking this is something scarier (to me) than celiac. Maybe the anxiety will subside once I go gluten-free. The anxiety is brutal.
    • I see no mention of the use of tTg tests to indicate the presence of Chrohns http://www.ccfa.org/resources/diagnosing-crohns-uc.html     
    • I guess I feel like if it is celiac that's ok. I know so many people with celiac and I feel ok about it. But anything else terrifies me. I just read online that elevated blood tests can be from crohns and not necessarily  celiac. But I don't know how elevated they mean. I also don't know how common that is. I don't have symptoms of crohns aside from the intestinal issues. No pain, no elevated white count, no bleeding or anemia, my weight is stable. I just didn't know if the ttg-iga can detect crohns rather than just celiac.  I do think that my weird hives that I get upon scratching or brushing up against something could be related to celiac, if that's what I have. My PUPPP rash was miserable. I never related it to gluten and I don't know if other women with celiac have experienced that. My anxiety started right around the same time that my dermatographism started. I have keratosis on the backs of my arms and on my thighs. They come and go. After my last pregnancy the backs of my arms felt like sandpaper. I can't help but wondering if it's all connected.
