I had a colonoscopy 2 years ago. I ended up in ER three days later with severe pain. I was given anitbiotics for a non-existant kidney stone. That set the tone for no BMs without the assistance of a laxative for a year or more. I have found a doctor that has done tests and says I have a colonized yeast infection in my colon on the left side (he says colonoscopies are notorious for yeast infections). My heart pounds about 3-4 a.m. every morning. He says my heart is trying to get the blood supply through the affect colon area causing my heart to work harder and thus, the pounding heart. I also have extreme bottocks muscle cramps on the left hip and butt area. My hip joints are getting lose and clicking too. He is treating me for a systemic yeast infection and has me on a supplement that is suppose to clean out the heart and make it stronger. Has anyone else experience something similar after a colonoscopy? I get extremely tired, have anxiety, and feel like I have the flu. Also the sickness comes in waves. Almost always sicker in the morning and by night I feel better. This is the only doctor after seeing 30+ others that has come up with any explanation (others implied it was in my head, wanted to remove my colon, thought I was exaggerating, etc). I am giving it a try, because at least I am not worse. I did have mulitiple other symptoms like extreme bladder pain. It has all but disappeared. I still get constipation, tremors occasionally, and foggy memory, but so much better. Oh, I forgot, I also had a precancerous uterus, and ovaries removed through this 2 years period. Been a long 2 years.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
