I am 22 years old female and never had any issues with my bowel movements or anything else basically. I used to have occasional morning diarrhea maybe twice a month but then it stops and it's as if nothing happened.


On 31st March I went to eat out (a pizza which had some sausages and goat's cheese on) and the day after I was having bad diarrhea. My doctor ordered Siprox since he thought it would be Salmonella and the diarrhea stopped for a bit. Then it started again and lasted for two weeks. I was admitted to hospital, they gave me Siprox and Flagyll, stool tests and blood tests were all perfect. Diarrhea then stopped and I was discharged.


I was fine for two weeks but then I started getting bouts of morning diarrhea and gas everyday. This is now my third week. I went to a gastroenterologist and did some more blood tests which are ok and will be doing more stool tests soon. He prescribed No-Spa for three weeks and Bioflor for 10 days. These last 3 days I was getting more than morning, like around 5 times per day. My period is due in 3 days so don't know if it matters?


Anyone of you had similar issues to mine? How long does IBS-PI last usually?


Any kind of feedback is appreciated. Thank you.
