YOgurt dilemma

I'm overcoming a stomach bug that began with Greek yogurt.

Allow me to explain?

I got bored with Dannon Light & Fit that I have been eating for the last 3 years so I decided to try Chobani Greek Yogurt last week. Well. This stuff is very yummy and satisfying (although an acquired taste) and it is REAL yogurt. By real, I mean that it contains all of the healthy-like bacteria that real yogurt has. And, um, the yogurt had me more "regular" if you will. Regular turned into severe cramping and pain and that glued to the toilet phenomenon known also as a "stomach bug"... virus, whatever. I actually left work early because I couldn't deal on Saturday. This also meant that any plans I had resembling fun for Halloween were canceled because I couldn't leave my house.

The dilemma is this. I really liked the yogurt and at 3 POINTS it was very worth it. But I don't know if it caused the bug, or if the bug was coming anyways. I still have two containers left.

Oh dear, I know that phenomenon very well. It sucks (the life right of you)! Took me two full weeks to completely get rid of it.
I dunno about the yoghurt. Never heard of bugs in the yoghurt. There shouldn't be any in it, seen the way it's prepaired. But you neve rknow, I guess.
God luck! Get better soon!.

Really the only way that could have happened is if you're lactose intolerant and/or have a milk allergy - but Dannon light and fit is a dairy yogurt, so I'm not sure what to tell you.

Is that the only thing you ate? What a strange thing.

Hmmm...can you eat 1/2 the container to see if you have a reaction? Poor thing, I hate stomach issues. Did you feel sick in any other way?
