In Topic: Dia. . . . For 5 Days

As i figured they would tell me at emergent care, it's a "virus."  grrrrrr  It seems that is the standard medical answer for everything.  This just doesn't feel like a "virus." So I'll wait a few more days and if not better, I'll go back.

Now day 6 :(  I thought I was better, I felt better and did  lot of gardening this morning, then came in to eat lunch and suddenly felt sick and the di came back. Very distressed over this.


The thought of some food carrying germ has come to my mind many times but I am super ocd about washing my fruits and veggies before eating, always worrying about getting listeria or e-coli or any of those things.  I even wash pre-washed stuff, I even wash oranges!!  And I won't nibble on a grape in the store to see how sweet or sour it is because I know they aren't washed.  So I've  kind of put the idea of of anything along this line aside, not to mention I haven't heard of any recent food borne illnesses.


I know my diet can be rough on the intestines but for 5 weeks I had no problem at all, it wasn't until week 6 that I started to feel unwell.  That is what is so confusing about it.  If there was even the possibility of having cross contamination I would consider that but with a diet consisting mostly of veggies and fruits I don't know where the problem could be.  I have a gluten test kit and tested my pumpkin seeds and Planter's mixed nuts and they both turned up negative.  I have one more test left and I'd try it on something but I have no idea what to try it on.  Orange juice??


I think I'll head over to the emergent care, hopefully they won't just brush my symptoms aside.

I  think  this  may sound weird  but  I got  this  when a  prescription  did not  agree  with  me.  SO  it  could be   a food  or  drug  issue....

It doesn't sound weird at all, but unfortunately I don't think I've had any new foods or prescriptions though it is hard to say cause it's been going on a couple years now and I can't remember what if anything changed two years ago.  My two prescriptions haven't unless the inactive ingredients have changed.

There are many possible reasons you have this including Candida Yeast Infections, excessive saliva etc.  Look for other things and not just vitamin b as the cause.


Good Luck,  Colleen

I kind of assumed it was a vitamin B issue and probably B6, but now after researching some more I see it can  be yeast or bacterial.  I have used bacitracin, cortisol and a couple of other things with no improvement.  I decided to pick up some anti-fungal medication at the store yesterday but all they had was stuff to stop jock-itch.  The only thing that went through my mind when I thought of putting that on my lips was ewwww. :huh:


I read somewhere else that a couple people found relief with Vicks Vap-O-Rub so I tried that and I do think it is getting better.

What kind of vitamin B complex are you taking? Is it already methylated? From what I read, some folks are not good at this process. For example, the best Vitamin B-12 is methycobalamin instead of the more common colbalamin that is found in vitamins and added to processed foods.

I have no idea if my vitamin B complex is methylated or not, and I honestly never even heard of this.  It is a CVS brand, buy one, get one free, so I would assume it probably is the more common kind.  I don't see anything on the label that has either of these words (but it is gluten-free).  Vitamin B12 isn't even part of this pill.  But I did buy another separate B12 pill when I realized this one didn't have it.  However I stopped taking the B12 because I found it had mannitol and I am very sensitive to that.
