Here's the deal.
About 9 months ago, doctors told me I had mono. I had been very lethargic and somewhat depressed. About 3 months ago I was diagnosed with MRSA when I was living in Ecuador and had to have some surgeries. I was given clindamycin in order to get rid of the infection. When I came back to the states, the doctors told me the clindamycin gave me C. Diff -- they found this after I'd told them that I was very lethargic, had bloody diarrhea, loss of appetite, abdominal pains, and nausea. They also found that I have a D, B12, albumin and protein deficiency. They started me on medicine called Flagyl which only made me worse. The blood got brighter and I was much more tired; in addition, I had severe nausea and stomach pains, along with intestinal pains that weren't as severe before. Since, I've been noted as clinically depressed and the medicine still didn't get rid of the C. Diff. Now doctors are questioning different things such as Crohn's disease, Ciliac's disease, irritable bowel syndrome, colitis, endometriosis, or even colon cancer. I leave in January for Africa and need to figure all of this out before I go! Does anyone have any ideas? Can anyone even test positive for C. Diff if they actually have something else? Why would I have had bloody stools and such even before starting my clindamycin if that is what gave me the C. Diff anyways? Answers, anyone!?
