Also, any feed back on the product called Activia? Is there such a thing as having too much of the good bacteria in your system? Anyone use this product and have any potential side effects from using it?
Thanks for the info.
|I tried Activia, and noticed no real difference (I have IB). However, many people I talked to said they got severe stomach cramps/pain from it.|

Are we talking severe contracting pains just below the bust line in front, and on the sides??? Pain strong enough to take your breath? I'm very interested in knowing as much as I can about their pain. Did it come and go off and on often, and did they have a severe backache with it also? How long did they suffer from this? This started with me about two weeks ago, went from a soreness within, to severe contracting pains and after two weeks I'm still somewhat sore from this.
I have a doctor's appt. today because of severe contracting pains that almost sent me to the hospital a week ago. Had this pain been any higher up towards my chest I would not have been able to have tolerated the contracting pain.
This additional info is very interesting. Maybe all I've been suffering from is from eating that. I've been to the doctor, and we've been in the process of ruling out some things before we do further testing, so any additional info I can get on this will help me a lot!
| Gee Pam, your pain sounds a lot like it could be serious.
I'm glad you're going to see the doc; be sure to describe it fully to him/her.
|That does sound serious, Pam. Let us know what the doctor says.|
|Pam, you might want to have your gall bladder checked. The pain you describe can radiate from the gall bladder or bile ducts. And a small percentage of the population can STILL produce stones after having their gall bladder removed, which is what happened to a good friend of mine. Her doctors (ER, Internist, Surgeon) told her she was nuts after she explained that she was having the same pain she had before her gall bladder removal surgery. She found a different Internist who sent her for an ultrasound and bloodwork, and found that she had a flat stone in her common bile duct that was acting like a valve. When the stone was upright, there was room for bile to flow and she was fine. When the stone moved horizontally, it closed off the duct, creating a back-up, and all her pain. She had the stone removed, and has been fine ever since, but it's a good thing she got a doctor to listen to her.
Please keep us posted, and we hope you are feeling better soon.

|The gall bladder was the first thing suspected, but I lost that years ago. Think I was one of the last few unlucky ones to get the old fashioned removal! But, thanks for the heads up on stones. I had no idea you could still get those afterwards!
Today he took blood, wants me to collect fecal matter from three BM's to rule out any trace of unseen blood. Have consultation appt. set up with surgeon to have the light run down my throat (upper GI?? think that's the right word for that test). Checking out the liver as well, so we'll see.
I just wondered if anyone else had problems after ingesting that Activia.
Thanks for well wishes and info!
|My husband tried it. Didn't do anything for him but he didn't get any unusual stomach pain from it either.|
|I can't really remember the exact pain (location or duration) people told me. All I seem to remember is it being described as intense cramps.
I hope you are feeling better, soon.
