  1. 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.
  2. I got tested for lyme last week, waiting on results. I am a hiker but I doubt that's the case
  3. 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...
