  1. Also, it seems like my symptoms really bother me at night. It has been waking me about almost nightly for the past month or two. A lot of nauseous and churning of the stomach. It last about an hour. If I pass gas or burp it tends to make it better, but I also feel very weak during this. Has anyone else had these symptoms?
  2. Thanks for the response. Cdiff was no fun at ALL! I honestly thought I was going to die the first time I had it. I was in the hospital for a few days pretty much knocked out on morphine. It seems since that, I havent felt right. Not fun for an active male in his mid 20s. I have a few more questions. Sometimes I do feel alright and can eat fine. But Im always rushing to the bathroom. Also my hips and knees always feel stiff. Is joint stiffness a symptom? I really hope in part of my mind I'm positive for celiac. It would give me some resolution! I just want answers....
  3. I'm a 26 year old male, who in the past few years have had some major stomach problems. About four years ago I had a nasty parasite that caused me to lose about 65lbs. After healing from that, they found that the parasite had attacked my gall bladder, causing me to have that removed. For a year or so I started feeling better, then what I thought was the flu hit me. Instead it was cdiff, which I had 4 times in one year. After getting over that I started gaining weight, but never felt all there. Had a lot of bloating and gas. Well for the last 2 months it has picked up alot. I get very very bloated and gassy. This seems to be hitting me at night more than the day. But its also making me very nauseous. It wakes me up in the middle of the night and I can here my stomach churning and making noises. I have a lot of gas and burp a lot. I also have been really tired and get kind of stiff or sore in the muscles. The only reason I suspect it could be celiac is because my grandpa has it. I havent been tested for food allergies, but will here in the next few days. Also another thing is , when these symptoms started it seemed like I was very stressed. The bloated and gassy feeling I have comes and goes, but these last few months have been terrible. Sometimes I cant make it ten mntures after eating to rush to the bathroom. Then sometimes I wont go for a day or two, then when I do go , I will have to go several times. If anyone has any opinions please respond. I just wont to feel better and know its not all in my head! Thanks!
