I have a question. Has anyone else experienced the following: It starts out with a nasty tasting and smelling burp. They will last 12-24 hours with alot of bloating. You feel like you could explode and any relief from this gas is appreciated. Then you will have explosive type of diarrhea (sp). This lasts about 24 hours and then it is over. I was blaming this on my husbands diabetes until I came down with it. It doesn't seem to be anything that we eat and it is almost contageous. I will have it one day and my husband the next. This has been going on now for over a year. The doctors just scratch their heads. I have had our water tested (well water) and it is fine. Just recently my husbands sister has the same exact thing happening with her. Any input or experiences will be appreciated. We just cant figure it out.
It sort of sounds like some sort of stomach virus. I suggest you flood your system with the beneficial bacteria that is found in yogurt. Eat several teaspoons every 2 hours or so. You could also take a probiotic type of capsule that you get from a health food store. Taken at bed time!!
Your GI system bacteria seems to need re-balancing. Many things can make it get out of shape---from things you eat to a virus of some sort. You may never find out the reason but we do know there is constant WAR FARE going on in everyone's Gastro system between the good bacteria(Flora) and the bad bacteria. In-taking good bacteria is just a healthy thing to do!!!
If you are interested a Homeopathic remedy --Arsenicum Album 30X could help.
You may want to see if the doc will test for C-diff to although I would think you would have more diarrhea than you do but who knows. And yes if it is an infection you could be passing it around possibly. Follow Harry's suggestions and hopefully that will clear things up. Also there is no connection with those symptoms and diabetes.
I have had many many tests done for the same exact thing. Different Drs/specialists. The last specialist told me sometimes we have to deal with the body God gives us!! Pheewy on that!!! I believe in God, but I also believe that was a cop out on my Drs part. I'm not giving up!!! This crap is happening to me monthly now!
