I have been hospitalized 3 times over the last 4 months for recurrent C.Diff colitis. I have also had multiple other infections including esophageal candida twice. Up until about a year ago, I had been a relatively normal, healthy young woman. Now I have frequent nausea w/ vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss, fevers, joint pain, abdominal pain, syncope, hypokalemia, excessive fatigue, and recurrent infections among other things. I have only been able to tolerate a liquid diet and even with that I have been vomiting. The doctors cannot seem to find why or what is causing me to be sick all the time. I am only 24, with no major medical history prior to when this began. I was tested for HIV and hepatitis already and that was negative. Does anyone know any condition that I should be getting checked for? I just want to get better!
