    I've said all along that my ME/CFS started three days after I started on a course of Penicillin. It wouldn't surprise me if in the future they discover that several diseases/conditions will have a connection to unbalanced gut bacteria.

    Dear KerryK,

    I had IBS every since contracting CFIDS/ME until I took a 2 1/2 year course of doxycycline for the mycoplasma which triggered it full blown. In addition, years ago I started taking probiotics which also helped with it. I no longer suffer from the severe IBS.

    Thank you for the helpful info you have posted.

    Love, Mikie
