Aching Legs, Etc- Mystery Solved?!

5 posts in this topic

Hi all!

I've had a rough couple months!

In December, I was diagnosed with clostridium dificile (bacterial overgrowth/infection) after taking clindamycin for a tooth infection.

My recovery took about 3 weeks. I was finally off meds on Christmas day.

Since THEN, I've experienced almost daily severe anxiety attacks, and in recent weeks, the following:

Sores at corners of mouth. Would go away and re-appear.

Aching joints, mostly my right ankle/foot area. Sometimes left. And occasional soreness in calves/thighs/groin area as well. A light cramping sometimes. Sometimes aches in my wrist.

Feeling of weakness/numbness in my right leg and hand.

A few miscolored circular pinkish rash areas under each arm. Not DH. maybe 1/2 inch in diameter and barely raised. Starting to "dry" out.

Almost daily stomach aches (I can usually plan for it... around 5-6pm) and some reflux.

Whaddya all think??

I've been gluten-free since yesterday's breakfast and today has been almost without aches. A few on and off in my left leg but NOTHING in comparison! No weakness today, no stomach issues today...

If you want testing you need to be eating gluten. Post c.diff infection you need probiotics, perhaps for ever. you also sound multi vitamin def.

good luck

You might want to rule out Lyme disease...although this time of year that may not be an issue.??

I got tested for lyme last week, waiting on results. I am a hiker but I doubt that's the case

I was on probiotics for awhile. GI everything has seemed to have resolved for the most part. I know I need to eat gluten to be tested. This is just a test run to see how I'd feel. Rather see if there are results before I spend $$$$ on more testing.
