It was a life saver for me when the doctor's didn't believe my chronic diarrhea was caused by a series of antibiotics that I had to take.

Mar 5, 2019 · Trying to recover from a c. diff infection (Clostridium difficile) in Digestive Health

Anyone with C. Diff or even chronic diarrhea really must try Florastor. It is a yeast Saccharomyces boulardii (S. boulardii) and I've talked to two different people with Chrohn's disease who use. I used after I had to be on several different antibiotics and could not get rid of irritable bowel in which I had painful diarrhea which would empty me out once a week. Most doctors do not know about it. FLORASTOR!

Thank you for your response. Your weight loss is a wonderful thing.

Maybe I gained weight because I do take several different medications but all at relatively low doses; Celexa, Ambien and an old drug called meprobamate. I don’t recommend the drug route if you can avoid it. I miss Ibuprofen but taking it even once would give me stomach pain for months.

It’s possible the Ambien has caused the greatest weight gain but I’m betting it was stress and hormone related. My hormone balance has always been off but I started having sugar cravings when I turned 40 among having other stress related problems.

I do know that you have to be careful about massage but very, very gentle rubdowns can help. I think gentle water therapy is great even if it’s just warm/cold in your own bathtub. I have gotten trigger point injections for back pain. It’s a constant, expensive struggle but what is the alternative?

I am about to turn 50 and I can barely maintain a regular walking schedule because my feet, legs and lower back hurt so much. I need to lose 40-50 lbs.

On one bright note, I’m walking more this summer than I have in years. I can do 1/2 mile and one section of that is a good uphill stretch but the humid weather and trigger point pain has put a “cramp” in my routine. I’m going to keep at it.

I wish I could keep to 1500 calories but I feel that I get genuinely hungry. I don’t know if it is physiological or emotional.

Whenever you are ready or just need to tell someone that your pain is bad, just send me an email.

I am looking for people who have lost weight even though they have a chronic health condition or pain. I have very sensitive digestion and stomach problems as well.
