I just found the info from my c-diff dx and the antibiotic was Flagyl. I was told that it kills ALL the bacteria in your gut - good and bad and I've had a longstanding candida problem so I wasn't happy about doing any antibiotics. I found a website called Women to Women that had some info about the c-diff and probiotics that could help to eliiminate it. If you don't want to do antibiotics, this may be helpful info. I'm about to request a retest for the c-diff coz some of my symptoms have resurfaced. Do you have lower ab cramping? Mine comes and goes and I also have a mysterious pain in my tailbone which doesn't show up on x-rays, mris, or ultrasounds. That comes and goes also. Do you have any of these symptoms?
I hope this helps!
