After years of off and on abdominal pain and tons of testing...I finally found a doctor who did what should have been done years ago.....an extensive stool test! Found out I have a bacterial infection and a parasite (Dientamoeba fragilis) infection as well. She started me on 2 crazy antibiotics: Cipro & Metronidazole. HORRIBLE side effects! Stopped taking them on 2nd day. I am totally against antibiotics but I was so desperate to get rid of this once and for all. Anyone have any alternative ways to get rid of parasite and and bacterial infections??!!
