C diff hurts, bad. I had it after taking antibiotics. They tried me on just taking probiotics thinking it was just "out of balance". After two more weeks of pain, I had to go back and really make them them listen and understand my pain and then they finally tested a sample. Unbelievably embarrassing, but the only way to know. They finally prescribed Flagyl. In just a couple days I felt normal again.
The pain is abrupt and excruciating. It felt like I was being stabbed in my gut. It would come on suddenly and just disappear. I really thought I was going crazy. Don't let you baby suffer if the doc isn't helping, you may have to push for help. GL
