    Question citrobacter fruendii

    I tested positive for this bug. Its the only thing to show up positive in all my testing. I had the test called a Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis done from Great Smokies lab. This citrobacter fruendii tested at level 4+ and is listed as a possible pathogen. I guess they are normally occurring in the GI tract but can overgrow and cause problems.

    My problems are diarrhea, foamy, mucus-like stools, abdominal pain, massive nausea, and lately vomiting and fevers too.

    I went to the ER with a 104 fever and they found nothing in the stool tests or blood tests and sent me home saying it was a VIRUS. Slept for 2 days because they gave me compazine and phenergan(both did nothing), still feel like hell, and now the fever is back 101 and have to keep pounding the tylenol. Have not eaten solid food in one week. Total liquid diet and jello and gatorade.

    My doc who ordered the great smokies test put me on Septra (antibiotic) for 10 days for this. I am two days into it.

    I have been nauseated and gaving GI problems for months...could this bug be doing it? Anyone with any experience please let me know. Thanks.

    Re: citrobacter fruendii

    Yes, it could be doing it. You really need to get on some probiotics to follow up with after you finish the drugs.

    My dd had it, you can get past it.
