I think I have this. Does any one else? Seems to have gotten worse as I get older, maybe due to age. Any solutions?

Yep - I seem to have a bit of this after developing my IBS - a small leakage of "pasty" stool from time to time . Haven't got any solution though :-( .........

Do the anal manometry tests. it might reveal low resting pressure. if your sensation is intact, biofeedback can help.
A total of 183 patients(with unexplained GI symptoms) had breath tests, of whom 134 (73%) were positive for fructose malabsorption"
"80% of patients had lactose malabsorption "

I help most of my leaking symptoms with metamucil, which gives me some consistency by absorbing the fluid. This limits my time between when my brain gets the info I have to go vs when I actually HAVE to go, not good, but it is an acceptable trade off.

There are things get worse and others get better.while your body is older, your perciption, muturity and understanding improve. your skills to handle stress really become good. According to Eric the gut-brain is an essential part of understanding the IBS.mine start 13 years ago, and the food alergy progressivly got worse, while the perciption and muTurity improved.deep inside I feel that I will be cured

I have had more trouble with it since my anal fistulectomy. I just have to make sure to have wipes available for 'after' and use a little A & D ointment to protect [I think it may actually help plug up the problem!!!]
