Sep 22, 2018 · Trying to recover from a c. diff infection (Clostridium difficile) in Digestive Health

My diet before c diff was not good. I ate out a lot. Mostly fast food. I drank soda, ate cookies, snack cakes, and potato chips daily. After c diff my only liquid intake is water and kefir probiotic drink. I eat fruits, vegetables, and lean meats. I snack on sugar free candies. I have developed folliculitis on my face and scalp as well as the white patch on my tongue and c diff. I am on my last day of my first (and hopefully last) course of vanco antibiotics. I take klonopin 0.5mg for my anxiety. I'm thinking of going to an infectious disease specialist and a nutritionist to help get me back on track. I'm also going to talk with my pharmacist about additional probiotics and prebiotics to help.

Thank you for your reply. I do not know if I am immune surprised. How would I find out? I have been tested for fungal with negative results twice. I go to an oral pathologist Oct. 2 because my ENT is stumped. I'm nervous about my job because my boss is fed up with me missing time from work for doctors appointments and I am unsure of my protected rights in that regard. I am attempting to get psychological support as well as I agree I need that badly for more than just the c diff. I worry about everything. I'm scared I will spiral into a depression so deep and want to die. These antibiotics are not working I do not feel and am nervous my symptoms will intensify when I finish them. Then again, what am I not nervous about?

I was having diarrhea and mild upper left abdomen pain. Weeks before my tongue became very dry and now had a white coating in the back that will not go away. It's not bacterial or fungal. I went to a GI for my bowel problems and they gave a colonoscopy and upper endoscopy which had good normal results. I also had blood and stool testing. I got results 24 hours AFTER colonoscopy. All results fine except I have c diff. I got vanco 125mg for 14 days. I'm on day 11 and the slight pain is still there, my stool is orange with black flakes in it and slightly loose. I'm nervous that the antibiotics are not working. Is this normal? I'm also scared to infect others. If first treatment doesnt work will symptoms intensify? My anxiety is through the roof and I cry daily. I lost a relationship with my girlfriend over this, I'm scared I'm going to lose my job, and I'm scared to die. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks for listening.
