long time lurker (help!)..
Last August I went to Europe, about a month later I came back feeling tired, short of breath, stomach cramps, nausia, chills and anxiety with lower abdominal aches below belly button)
found white blood cells in the urine (uti?), and after a round of sulfazole/trimethrope (bactim I think it's called) I had to stop after only 3 days because of severe side effects (almost felt like bladder was twitching non-stop, joint pain, MAJOR NAUSEA)
8 days of tequil
14 days of avelox
white blood cells disapeared but I ended up with severe diarerra which ended me in the ER room in jan, the doctor listened to my story and gave me Flagyl because he "put his money on c. difficle" even though later on my stool test came up negative for c. difficle./giardia, pain shifted to lower left quad.
On the 8th day of flagyl my symptoms other than the terrible side effects of flagyl left me (I was so happy :) ) but then entire upper abdomen swelled with pressure/discomfort.
Fast fowarding,my pain and moved up to now the bottom left rib and front upper left rib stomach area.
current symptoms are: Fatique, anxiety, upper left pain (2out of 10 I'd say) small upper right that comes and goes (colicky) and minor nausea, can't sleep, i sleep on the right side (less pain). Fatty foods doesn't bother me but I get full easily. nausea is less now. slight discomfort below belly button and small parts of stool float. No diareerea. Sometimes mid gastric discomfort. Soda seems to irritate stomach bad.
