I had serious diarrhoea and was diagnosed with diverticulosis. All information seems to say eat more fibre - surely this cannot be right in the case of diarrhoea. I have at the moment cut out all fruit. I am diabetic, so already on a restricted diet.
We all know what a good fart sounds like, but if it’s accompanied by abdominal pain, recurring diarrhoea having seen tonight's show I suffer from the above symptoms but no longer have the diarrhoea but I still get uncomfortable stomach cramps and my weight keeps fluctuating what can this mean
Hello I am 16 years old and I have had trouble with my bowels for the past 2 years, I always have a stomach ache, feeling bloated and cramps and it makes me scared to go out as every time I do go out my stomach feels as if I need diarrhoea and sometimes do, it has no given me anxiety as I get scared to leave the house, if I eat I've creams, sweets chocolate and dairy products I find my stomach will not agree with these foods, however I will not have diarrhoea straight away it is normally the morning after, I have been to the doctor many times and have had blood tests and they tell me nothing is wrong, one minute I'm constipated the next I have diarrhoea and I have a stomach ache everyday, do you have any idea what this could be? I'm starting to feel like its all in my head
To whom this may concern, Ever since I had my appendix removed in 2002 due to appendicitis, every time I eat something greasy I get severe abdominal upset and diarrhoea. Bear in mind that I have not had any fatty food or greasy food since the start of the year. I avoid fast food places like they are the plague and yet 2 days ago my godson came home with KFC and gave me a piece and for the last two days I have been experiencing diarrhoea and stomach cramps whenever I lay down but when I'm sitting up I am perfectly fine. Please help me with any advice that you can offer and it will be greatly appreciated. Regards Matt
I have had diarrhoea for a almost 6 months and the only time I do not is when Im on my period. Why is that?
Im now 30 years old and i've suffered with cystitis on and off for many years, although i have periods were i can go without having a bout of it for a year or so it always comes back to get me! I also suffer from Chrons disease which i got when i was 16 and i am wondering if were i get alot of diarrhoea the bacteria from my bowl could set it off? The doctors give me antibiotics to clear the cystitis but were i have chrons it gives me very bad diarrhoea and makes me feel really poorly, so i have to stop taking it so the cysitis does not go.i've had blood tests and sent in many urine samples to the doctors but sometimes they come back with no infection showing so im at my wits end i've had it on and off since january and sometimes i suffer for 2 weeks at a time. Me and my partner are also now trying for a baby but sex does not seem to be my trigger, as im getting alot of cystitis for no reason and it wakes me in the night which is when it seems to start, we have now been trying for a baby for arround six months and still nothing, and due to the cystitis sex is most of the time off the cards. Im worried there is something wrong with me and im going to struggle getting pregnant, so if you can help with how i can get rid of this problem as i cant take antibiotics i would be much appreciative.

I think I have IBS. Sometimes I get diarrhoea real bad and bad wind. I have tried to eat different foods but it does'nt make a difference. I don't want to be on the show, just want to talk to someone about my condition. Can anyone help?
hi joe,everyone who has IBS has different symptoms and i'd reccomend you see your GP to confirm if this is the case. depending on your age and when the symptoms started will tell them if it is IBS or something else like food intolerance/allergy, etc. mine gets triggered by stress, certain foods (usually yummy ones i like best!) and i control mine with diet,medication and eating small meals regularly. it doesn't cure it but i find it helps control the worst symptoms so i can get on with life. don't suffer and worry and get it checked out.there are loads of info sites about digestive stuff that can help whatever yours is,and it will help you control it. P.S. i find eating dried fruit gives me room-clearing BAD eggy wind as the sulphites upset your gut! not nice...! good luck. x
My son is nearly 6 and has just had 3 days off school due to diarrhoea his stools now are very soft smelly and mustard colour.Is this a concearn still not eating much? Have spoken to gp.
I don't experience any pain or itching after sex so I'm probably not allergic - but if I swallow semen, I will have a bout of diarrhoea not long afterwards. Has anyone else had this problem or found a way to prevent it (besides not swallowing!)?
