Can anyone please help me figure out what I have? I don’t have hard stools and it’s not constipation, it’s that the poop is stuck inside me, even if it’s diarrhea. I can drink laxative and will need to have diarrhea really badly but it will NOT COME OUT. When it does it’s a little diarrhea at a time. It is like my body isn’t working. During flare ups (that often correlate with depression/anxiety), my intestines and bowel get so inflamed and my stomach looks like it’s pregnant. During that time the poop comes out super skinny like it’s coming out of too small a pathway. It is worse when I eat certain foods like coffee, chocolate, tomatoes, and I can’t have dairy. If I eat a hotdog the inflammation is at its worst. I can’t completely narrow down certain foods though, because I’m thinking it might even be a reaction to certain oils, chemicals or preservatives. I went for a food sensitivity test and it said I had none. During a non flare up, though, i can eat the same thing and not have as many symptoms. Weirdly enough if I drink alcohol all night long, I can eat anything (even a hot dog) and I will either just have regular diarrhea the next day or a perfect poop! (Thought I’d mention that because it’s so weird!) I went for a colonoscopy and they noticed the inflammation and thought I had chrohn’s or colitis but both came back negative. I’ve been to doctors, naturopaths, acupuncture, I drink water, juice veggies, take probiotics, glutamine, eat healthy, go to the gym and do everything to manage stress but I haven’t been able to fix this. Can you please let me know what you find out? I haven’t really seen other posts that are similar to what I am experiencing and it’s terrible.
