Helppppppp what is wrong with me

I was in the hospital last night. Diarrhea blacking out probable from dehydration and 102 temp. This has been going on for 2 weeks. Cant keep any food down dizzy and just feel really icky. They did a cat scan came out ok but they said sometimes the disease can change has any one else had theirs change? I use to be constipated now I can barley make it to the restroom going 12 times a day. They also mentioned cdiff they put me on antibotics flagyl cipro and 40mg pred. I wont get the results back from the c diff till tomorrow what do you think is wrong? Could the disease changed and I have to live with this horrible diarrhea??? Advice would be great I feel like im dying here

Oh hon, I'm so sorry you seem to really be going through it! Yes, sometimes us crohnies go from constipation to the big D. You could have a stricture that is causing this, and I certainly hope you get those results first thing!

Meanwhile, I hope you get some rest and relief!

I did not switch from constipation to D until after my blockage and resection... That was two years ago and I have had D ever since 10-20 times daily. There are many medications to help with this. You should talk to a GI doc for some more advice. I also know C-Diff will also do this to you. Just keep very hydrated as the D will make you very very dehydrated. But lastly it could be some sort of stomach virus as well. I am so sorry and I hope you get some info soon. Good Luck.
