: I finally got my GI doc to say "yes" that's what it is. It only took about 7 or 8 months from the time I told my family doc about my symptoms. I still have to take a 10 day corse(can't spell worth beans) of Flagyl. He and I both know that it won't help, but that way we can say we tried everything. I start it tomarrow. I've postponed it for as long as I can. Has anyone else had to take Flagyl? I heard that it will kill anything and averything in your GI tract. Ergo, serious D for the whole 10 days.

I've never heard of it. Is it supposed to kill bacteria, amoebas and other creepy crawlies? Is it an antibiotic? 10 days? Drink apple juice. A nurse told me once to drink lots of apple juice and that it will help the stinging hiney if you have lots of diarrhea. Don't know if it will work. I tried it and it didn't do much for me...
Good Luck! I'm having to go through all the "official diagnosis" crap (no pun intended)as well.
