Why does PI IBS have to be like this? Why does it have to feel exactly like having cdiff? Why does it have to act up at random and cause the same pain, the same sense of having to run to the bathroom, the same gurgling feeling in my stomach? Its been almost 2 years for me now since I stopped antibiotics and im getting tested again but I am absolutely terrified to recieve another positive back because now I dont know what im going to do and I dont know if I have it in me to go through another antibiotic treatment cycle. Thanks to everyone for listening to me vent over the years and thank you for putting up with my constant repetitive complaints. Thank you for all the reassurance youve provided but im just scared now. Wish those results could come back immediately but oh well thats life.

The problem with IBS is that it comes and goes and is unpredictable. There are medications to help symptoms and maybe your GI can prescribe you one. Hopefully, you do not have c difficile again. If you test, have them do a stool culture for other pathogens as well. Maybe it is a virus that you picked up. Everyone is under a lot of stress these days too and that can contribute to IBS symptoms. It does for me.
