What could it mean if my stools smell fishy and are loose and mucousy? I took Flagyl for 7 days and then took Diflucan for one night. Is my flora and fauna upset. I am cramping every half hour and have loose, fishy smelling stools. (five days now) Eating normal food produces extremely painful cramps and last until all the food has passed through me (4 hours sometimes). I started on a liquid diet today. Help!

  • If you just got off antibiotics it could be c. difficile. Its a bacteria that lives normally in your intestines and can over grow after antibiotic use. It causes severe diarrhea and is easily treated and diagnosed (with a stool sample). I'd try to get one.

I was told that this kind of odor is from chlamydia (probably mispelled).Could be something like a parasite as well. After so long you should see your doctor. It's always good to take some high quality acidophilis caps daily to keep that flora and fauna healthy. :p
