Ok I have had an ill feeling for about 6 years. When I eat certain food sometimes I feel great. I have been taking nexium 40mg and Echinacea for about 2 years. The Echinacea would make me feel better. When I get a sinus infection the doctor would put me on antibiotics and after about 3 days I would feel better. The problem is now I have gas every time I eat and diarrhea is bright yellow and joint and flank pain he put me on Align probiotics and lately it feels like my stomach is shaking. I’m worried.
This Sounds Like Small Bowel Bacterial Overgrowth
Your symptoms could be due to small bowel bacterial overgrowth. This can occur for many different reasons including antibiotic usage, surgery, low immunity, diabetes, drugs and many more. The fact that your symptoms are improved with antibiotics would support this possibility. I would suggest that you discuss this with your doctor or gastroenterologist. The diagnosis is usually made by a performing a glucose-hydrogen breath test and is treated with courses of antibiotics pulsed with probiotics usually.
