update:
I was doing better after I stopped metronidazol (Monday). by Thursday I felt hunger and ate my bland diet with pleasure.
Friday: knew something was wrong. felt cold inside throughout the day, the temp being low. my left eye hurt like I was getting a migraine.
Saturday: fever up to 101F, very bad shivers. migraine.


Sunday: fever, migraine, diarrhea, and vomiting. I was vomiting by the clock, even pure water. of course I threw up any fever-reducing meds. I suspect the vomiting had a lot to do with the migraine because my mom had the same spasm-like vomiting after her head trauma.

I took anti-nausea suppositories left from when my mom was ill. those helped the nausea. the tylenol suppositories did not help with the fever at all. norco is the only thing that really reduces the fever.

today: diarrhea. my abdomen is very bloated and it always hurts, like there's too much pressure in it. I feel the fever going up as I type.

any ideas at all? could it candida or still c diff?

Candida does not do this. You better get on some protocol gal. Or you could end up in big trouble. This is nothing to play with.

what about GSE in capsules, you seem to be saying it's ok? after throwing up so much, I doubt I can handle the bitterness.

I'm seeing a diff dr tomorrow, hoping to get in a stool sample. is there anything else I should ask him? I'll be asking for more anti-nausea suppositories. what if he wants to start me on vancomycin?

Even though it would be better to swallow it--c diff can be in the entire alimentary canal, better to at least get it to your intestines so if you really can't handle the bitterness, I would take capsules. You could even put the drops of GSE and oregano oil into an empty capsule--I do this sometimes for other uses. The Betaine HCL you could just get in tablet form. My protocol (a protocol is just a name for your plan or procedure that you have in place and follow as opposed to just trying things higglety-pigglety or not following your plan carefully) was the grapefruit seed extract, oregano oil and betaine HCL.

I keep reiterating it because it cured me and it's easy (other than the bitterness and making sure you follow it 3x a day every day) and relatively cheap. It would be best to see a naturopath but since you said you can't afford it, this is what my naturopath told me to take and it worked so I'm passing it on. I was able to catch my c.diff early and everyone's different but I think this is a straightforward remedy that would probably work for most people. It would certainly help kill some if not all of the c.diff if you follow it and stay on it. Like Arrowind said, this is serious and antibiotics will just weaken you more.

I was on a c.diff board and I was heart-rending to see all the sick people, most of them on the antibiotic rollercoaster, their doctors would give them one antibiotic after another hoping one would somehow work. Several people were having diarrhea 20 or 30 or even 50 times a day and were so sick and miserable and hopeless. I posted this on the board but unfortunately no one posted that they tried it or if it worked for them. There were less posts after that but that could have been for any reason.

I've been taking GSE drops and doing much better. I am pretty much back to normal--just a bit weak.

I also got VSL#3 as suggested in another thread.

Great to hear! Just don't make the mistake of stopping because you feel better. Make sure it's COMPLETELY gone. You don't want to be left with a harder to get rid of strain which is what could happen if you stop treatment too early.

Regular full body NONBURNING sun exposure between 10am ~ 3pm (when UVB levels highest) would speed up Vitamin D acquisition.
sorry, I'm still afraid of overdosing... should I buy this and take one every day for a week and then once a week? http://www.amazon.com/Vitamin-D3-50-.../dp/B000A0F2B2

you can take 50,000 IU daily for a week then reduce to 5,000 IU daily.. Some people take 50,000 IU every 10 days which is OK probably. I just find that I do better on a daily 5,000 IU, and if I should get sick then I take 50,000 IU 3 x day for 3 days. Dont worry about over dosing .... all those ideas have been blown. ... granted you would not want to take 50,000 IU daily forever though.

Glad you are doing better. I suggest that you take that GSE for at least 2 months... three wont hurt.

That sounds like a good plan to me.
7X50,000iu=350,000iu over the week, and that is a sensible amount to take to try to deal with the current deficiency status.
50,000/7=just over 7000iu daily and that is a reasonable amount to take daily to keep levels above 60ng/ml for most people. However a 25(OH)D test after 3months or so would be an idea to see if you are under/over target.

I think backing up with UVB/sun exposure whenever possible is also a good idea.
The body has a way of adjusting the amount absorbed (from skin and orally) so the higher your 25(OH)D the less is absorbed and the opposite is also true, people who are deficient have bodies hungry for vitamin d that will absorb more D3 when available than people with adequate or high status.

as far as bad timing goes, i need to have a tooth extracted next week. the physician told me to ask for penicillin to minimize the risk of another c-diff bout. any other ideas?

Antibiotics cause C-Diff, so don't use them.

Use colloidal silver instead, and a GOOD PROBIOTIC.

Colloidal silver is a natural antibiotic, but without the side effects.

You could also use MMS to kill the infection.
