Hi all, sorry to be so graphic, I'm not meaning to be crude but every day I suffer from diarrhoea. I never used to, sometimes I could go for weeks or even months without a single episode but now I never have a good day. The problem is when I eat, within an hour or so after I desperately need the loo and can't hang in and when I go, well, it's kind of explosive (think cow pat). I have pain throughout the day (though not always) in different areas of my stomach, and feel nauseous after eating or going to the loo. Also I'm tired all the time and get thirsty quite a lot so I think I may be losing too much water with the constant diarrhoea. The doctor prescribed Imodium which doesn't always work and I don't like the idea of taking this every day for what he says is IBS. Are these typical symptoms or should I insist on some tests? If so what others and what for? Also I would like to know of any natural remedies that are not only successful in treating diarrhoea ( it's kind of embarrassing in work) but would help me to absorb more vitamins and minerals. Thanks in advance
