Re: My digestive system has been completely messed up ever since visiting China while on antibiotics and getting diarrhea there (7 months ago).
thanks for the advice
i hope you can fix yours soon as well
what is the possibility that it's in fact not any pathogenic organism or parasite
affecting me still
although the gut dysbiosis and bacteria imbalance is still probable i guess since i was on all those Antibiotics
and this happened directly after them
and i realize IBS is a bullshit diagnosis and it seems like GIs don't even know anything about it since they pretty much give up on researching once they become doctors unless it's in their specific field, but they usually focus on things like chrohn's and like diseases that are already established
but anyway, what do you think the possibility is it's just like an impared nerve response in my gut or something liek that that wouldn't show up on any test. Or some very obscure nutrient or hormonal deficiency or something.
I also (prior to this happened) I was consuming huge amounts of caffeine for a while (like 800mg+ a day) as it was making me feel great mentally as well as making me look good (since it stimulated my bowels like crazy and also its diuretic properties, so I was basically eliminating waste/urine right all day long and was feeling very light, holding no water, etc.)
i wonder if those amounts of caffeine somehow impaired my gut or something
this sucks, i really hope it is something detectable in one of these private lab stool tests so that I can have an answer at least and start my path to healing, but if not, this may never get better
