For a few years now, I have been having issues with my bowels... do you think it's IBS?You see, I hardly ever have a "normal" bowel movement. My bowel movements are always liquidy diarrhea (a lot of it, too!) and come without warning. When I have a BM, it comes all of a sudden. Suddenly, my stomach will cramp up and feel, for lack of a better term... bubbly. I get very gassy and it is almost impossible to keep the flatulence in. When I pass this gass a little diarrhea will sometimes come out. When this happens, I have to RUN to the bathroom. My gassy tummy only lasts about a minute before the real show happens. The diarrhea associated with these episodes is the worst I've ever experienced, and I'm sure you people know about diarrhea unfortunately. :(This is horrible, because I have these BMs at many inconvenient, emabarassing times. Once I was stuck in a traffic jam for 2 hours. I tried to hold it in, but I couldn't, and was forced to sit in my own waste for the whole car ride. Once I was at a wedding, and I tried to hold it in, but experienced very loud flatulence (much to everyone's annoyance.) Sevreal times have have defacated in bed! My explosive BMs happen at restraunts, in the car with people, at parties, the office... wherever! One of the worst parts is being in a public restroom (when I get to one in time), and having people look at me in disgust when I get out. They can here the nasty squelching/farting/plopping noises I make that are so loud. Sometimes the diarrhea will last for about an hour. It is always accomponied by loud gas. If I try to hold my diarrhea in, I have loud gas. This has been going on about 3 years. I have at least a bowel movement everyday like normal, but they are always very greasy and diarrhea-like. I only have these unexpected bowel movements every 2 or 3 days (and when I get them I often get 2 or more in one day. The most was 8 ). I just had one of these episodes about five minutes ago. Right now, my tummy feels very gassy and cramped. I keep passing gas, and I can feel a bowel movement coming on. What is wrong with me? Thanks for reading!
