Are the symptoms always diarrhea? i did a short course of rifaximin and have been bloated ever since despite heavy probiotic supplementation. can c.diff cause bloating and gas w/o diarrhea or is that unlikely?

thanks

In my experience with cdiff (as a nursing student) its always been accompanied by horribly foul smelling diarrhea. If you're still concerned about having cdiff definitely go see the doctor as its passable to others. Hope you feel better!
