: 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.

Hi twa,
Flagyl is a very strong antibiotic. I have taken it on several and have yet to get though 10 days because of the side-effects.It made me nauseated and dizzy.
It is given for amebic dysentery in your case and it will do in most bad as well as good bacteria and things like trichomonas, liver abcesses and other infections.
There are 2 serious adverse reactions that can happen---convulsive seizures and peripheral neropathy.But, the most common is: about 12% get nauseaed and you can expect vaginal candida infection and it can cause D&C--but as with any potent medication BE alert and if you have anything outside of your normal Miseries--- contact your Doctor --the possible adverse effects are many.
I hope this does not scare you too much --just be alert as always!!!WE CARE †
God Bless---Harry
