Ok, this is somewhat of a graphic post; I apologize.

I have recently added onto my treatment regimen the following: Cryptolepis and Detox- 2. This is on top of numerous antibiotics/ anti-malarials.

I am taking good quality probiotics. Since starting these new supplements, and possibly before (I can't remember), I have had alternating diarrhea and constipation with normal BM's. I don't necessarily 'go' that many times per day when I am having the first of the two.

I have no fever or anything like that, but I don't understand why I am having the diarrhea. It's pretty frothy and yellow, which scares me because that is kind of what it was like when I had liver problems.

Help!! Is this C.Diff?

I just had C diff, and I don't think this is the description of it at all. I would not worry about C diff if I were you, to tell you the truth.

C diff generally will cause a lot of mucous in the stool. And, the odor can be terrible. If you get blood in the stool, it is time for the ER. I only had about 5 seconds to make a run to the bathroom. That was the most horrible part. Day or night.

Frothy and yellow is not at all what I had--not at all.

Orange yellow stool was my first symptom of c diff. If you look it up orangy yellow stool is pretty common with c diff. I would get it checked, better to be safe then sorry. The color of my stool preceded the diarrhea by 3 weeks.

Your symptoms sound like mine when I am having candida issues- both flare and die off can cause constipation/diarrhea alternating. In fact I'm dealing with it again now.

I take probiotics daily too but when the bowel issues flare for me I start upping Candex to help things calm back down. Don't know if that's something you could try too? Feel better!
