I'm new to this site and I have a question for those of you dealing with PI IBS.Last year I somehow came down with C Diff, I had a nasty strain of it and needless to say it really messed me up. A few months ago all my PI IBS symptoms went away only to show up about a week prior to my periods and then the symptoms would go away when my period was over. My PI IBS was with D always. This past month about a week prior to my period I started to get stabbing pain on my right side which is somewhat normal although not to the extent I was experiencing it. Well after my period the pain has just gotten worse. I am again having cramping down my back and sides which very much feels like it did when I had C Diff but no D is sowing up. I'm actually experiencing pretty bad constipation. I also feel very tired and dizzy and my face keeps getting flush. I also am having pain from time to time on my left side with gurgling sounds. I went into the ER over the weekend because the stomach and back cramping was so bad and I thought for sure C Diff was back just not with the D yet. I was told it's possibly it could be rearing it's ugly head again but it could also be a bad flare up of IBS or something else altogether. I really thought I was on the mend so I'm confused and really don't know much about PI IBS other then it should go away.I was wondering if anyone dealing with IBS or PI IBS specifically has had flare ups that last like this? We're talking about over 2 weeks now with bowel movements not easing the pain at all. really my back pain is the major issue I am having. It's cramping around my lower back and hip area.I'm trying to keep a level headed mind about this whole thing but the thought of C Diff returning makes me want to curl up in a ball and cry. I see my Gi doctor this week but I was hoping any of you could give me some insight in the meantime.
