Was diagnosed with c. diff in early October after several rounds of antibiotics. Believe it has been cleared after three rounds of medication but still have concerning GI issues that I think/hope are Pi-IBS (post infectious IBS) but my health anxiety has me panicked over IBD.
My current symptoms are alternating constipation (2-3 days) then soft but formed bowel movements (1-5 times a day). With these bowel movements, often feel I am not "finished" and may push more out later in the day. This is also accompanied by a pressure/fullness feeling in my rectum. In addition, have mild bloating, gas, belching, increased urination, and occasional mild cramps and assorted pains in different areas. Have had no blood since before my c. diff diagnosis (doctor thought it was an anal fissure), no fever, and no joint pain.
Am currently taking a fiber supplement, probiotic, drinking kefir, and trying to drink a lot of water. Also on Zoloft to try and help with my increased anxiety.
My GI wants to do a colonoscopy to rule out IBD or microscopic colitis even though she thinks this is PI-IBS. Recent blood work was normal.
