If he had Giardia he wouldn't be typing away on the computer, he'd be doubled up in a ball cramping away on an ER table, or at least I was - it certainly isn't a subtle infection.

Sounds like you had it really bad. I had it for several months before Dx...uncomfortable symptoms...but nothing like you had....ick...

Didn't know you could have it and not be basically dying. Happened when I lived in Francestown, NH where the town's water supply was not what you'd call sophisticated in a place where we were surrounded by beaver ponds on all sides.

Everyone I knew who got it (like 5% chunk of the town) had more or less immediate and dire symptoms which required an ER visit. Grim.

Couch: Whoh. I'm be into supporting a "don't ask don't tell" policy on this one.

Yeah, I suspect it would be easier asking a spouse or sibling for a kidney.

I noticed you said you had it in NH...my Dad, who lives in Pa, got it a few years ago and suffered as you describe. It became very rampant around the area he lives, near Lake Erie. Others there suffered as you described. I was here in Ca when Dx. Probably got it from one of the dogs I foster. I wonder if the strain here on the west coast is more mild...who knows...I was pretty uncomfortable but nothing like what you went through.

The usefulness of probiotics explained. Don't believe the industry hype. Only 20% of the bacteria in our gut can by cultured.

You can learn a lot in these threads, I thought Candida Infection was the bass player for L7...




More on topic, lactose is one thing, but my wife is allergic to casein, one of the proteins, so there is no free pass for sheep or goat dairy. Wheat, soy, and eggs too, but all the dietary shenanigans are worth it to feel better. She'd just always assumed everyone felt awful after they ate.

I will try fecal transplant, just need to convince the wife to be the donor. She is not enthusiastic to the idea and neither am I. Needs to be done, though.


There's some kind of irreverent humor I'm thinking here. Can't believe your wife wouldn't want to give that particular gift that she could forever remind you of~!
