We just found out that my wife tested positive for C. Difficile. Her original diagnosis was post-infectious IBS. She has been suffering for 4 months. Her symptoms were uncontrollable diarhea, abdominal cramping, fever and flu like symptoms. Finally we went to the doctor and told him we wanted tested for bacteria, etc. He did not check the box for C. Diff. When my wife took the stool sample in to the hospital, she explained what was going on with her and the lab technician said you need to be tested for everything including C. Diff. Thank GOD for someone who was willing to go the extra mile.She is on FLagyl, 500mg, 2x/day for 10 days. We don't know if this was the problem all along but we can't worry about that. We are looking to the future. I know we have a rough road ahead for the next 10 days, but it beats the hell out of the last 6 months. We also found out that you need to test for C. Diff at least 2-3x's because it is like Lymes Disease, it doesn't always show up in the first test. We consider this our Christmas miracle. We are looking forward to Christmas! I hope this may help someone else. Whatever you do, NEVER give up!
