    C-Diff Symptoms ???

    Question ... I am wondering if I have C-Diff. Does it sound possible?
    First I had severe C-Diff about 12 years ago. Never again, until now.
    Around July 5th ... I had one episode of severe diarrhea. And a lot of gas. About 2 weeks later, I had another episode of large amount of loose stools. Since then I have had foul smelling gas and a lot of intestinal rumbling. Prior to all of this, I never had gas.

    I was also on Doxycycline. for about 3 months at 100 mg a day.
    And my mother is in a skilled nursing facility and I visited her for a weekend 2 weeks prior to all of this happening.

    Now that I only have intestinal rumbling and passing gas ... is it possible that I had C-Diff and am still carrying the bacteria causing the gas?
