Hey everyone, been to see a gastroenterologist, had colonoscopy, been to dietician(FODMAP), taken riflaxamin, tried probiotics and nobody knows what's wrong with me yet.... In fact my dietician doesn't think it's IBS. Wondering if anyone here has any similar experiences....
Essentially every morning, about 5-10 minutes after I wake up I have to make a sudden and urgent rush to the bathroom, this might happen another 3-4 times during the day up until lunch time where it may happen once more but my stomach is always in a similar unsettled mood so it's very hard for me to make any plans or do anything because I can never be sure. Loperamide helps but never stops the morning rush (even If I've taken 8+ the day before) and also messes up my system, causing the next few days to be all over the place.
Sorry to go too graphic but my stool looks nothing like anything on the Bristol stool chart. It can mostly be described as solid but undigested I guess, definitely on the more watery end of the scale. It looks like some of the work to solidify it is taking place and then it's just rushed through.
I have another visit to my Gastroenterologist next month but if anyone has experience or knowledge of any of this id love to hear your opinion.
Thanks so much
