Hello all, I will start by saying this is all completely new to me and typically I am not overly comfortable talking about this. With that being said, I am 25 years old and have had stomach issues for the last few years but always tossed it up as a weak stomach, it is what it is. Fast forward to this last April things got bad. Crippling pain, severe weight loss, achy joints, some blood in stool (minor), severe nausea, and fatigued on the “bad days” and even had a few fits between then and now of constipation for days (some of the worst pain I have ever felt) all while having 5-12 bathroom visits a day. I being as hard headed as I am, I still put it off and tossed it up as I have a bug and it will go away until about a month and a half ago. My best friend, who has had severe Crohns for a decade, realized what was happening and forced to make a GI appointment to understand what is going on as our symptoms are in line. At this point, I can say the Diagnoses has become almost as stressful as living with what is actually going on. I have had blood work, stool tests, colonoscopy, endoscopy, biopsies, and an ultra sound over the last month. All of which came back normal with the exception of finding that I “had” C Diff but it is no longer active and I must have beat it without treatment. The GI went ahead and stated that the symptoms are the same as I was having and as IBD and immediately started treatment for the C Diff even though it’s no longer “active”. I am getting the impression that they are chalking it up as that and now that I have actually committed to getting help I am being brushed off. If I “had” C Diff why am I still so sick even after showing not active? I feel like I am a crazy person that wants to be diagnosed with something that I do not have but I legitimately feel something is not right. I do not have another appointment for another two weeks after I finish the antibiotic treatment and just do not understand what is next after this as far as testing and diagnosing. What should I expect, what should I say at the next appointment, and most importantly am I crazy? This has all been a bit much for me as I am otherwise very active, until recently, and over all healthy. Just looking for thoughts and advice on what I should expect next. Thanks in Advance.
