I have suffered with this for god knows how many years, 15 maybe? Obviously having ibs means that you have bowels that dont work correctly. But i have always suffered from having small very frequent bowel movements throughout the day with lots of gas and urgency. By the end of the day i must be in and out of the bathroom 15 times. I dont know why i cant go 1 - 2x a day with normal amounts of stool at once rather than a little here, a little there. it takes over my whole day, and i get sore from going over and over again. Ive tried fiber and liked some of the affects of it. I seemed more cleaned out than usual. Tried calcium a few long periods and it totally F'ed up my system and was way to much to think about taking a pill with each meal. Ive done yogert (activa) and pro biotics and they seemed to upset my stomach because i slightly lactose intollerant. Is there anything else out there to help with such frequent bowel movements?
