Diarrhea (sp?) shooting stomach gas pains, stomach tightness, and wet or sneaky farts are main symptoms now 3 days in.

Not sure f I had a parasite because it couldn't be diagnosed, but I had intense stomach pain every time I ate for like 3 months straight after traveling abroad. I actually got better by taking some random Indian pills given to me by an uncle because nothing else worked... wish I had a better suggestion for you.

If you think you have one call your insurance nurse line pretty much every insurance company has one. Get a qualified person to assess you

Sorry bud. About a year ago I had c diff and knew something was wrong when I couldn't go 45 minutes without runnung to the bathroom. It's serious. If you have any doubts, you need to see a doctor.

If it gets worse, go to Mayo Clinic. They have a whole department that specializes in these kinds of things.

lol you don't need to go see a specialist in arizona and more than likely don't have c diff. go your pcp or an urgent care and shit in a cup. parasites that are endemic are just that - common and more than not easily treatable with western drugs (anthelmintics).

If you're eating enough but still losing weight, that's a symptom. That's a big tell. If you're feeling nauseous, fever, exhausted, develop a rash, abnormal gas/bloat, or have abdominal pain, that's another tell. Nothing better than going to a medical professional though. (this isnt medical advice)

Folks, any advice on applying for jobs at a previous client? As a firm we have great relationships with the senior client leadership and I am afraid that the GEP and my RL will eventually find out when I submit my job application. On the other hand, if I tell my RL prior to applying, I will probably end up towards the top of “people to be laid off” list.

My manager doesn’t seem to have any boundaries - always saying yes to additional unnecessary work from the client and always working through weekends/nights/PTO/holidays.
