My pattern has been C for several days (maybe 5 - 7), followed by large BMs which only sometimes end up watery. Lately, though, I go 3 or 4 days with nothing and usually end up with D and sometimes it's very urgent. A new GI just prescribed exercise 3x/wk (for anxiety), Metamucil w/Calcium (b/c she said it's absorbed better that way), Nulev as needed but I can take Bentyl if I want to try it, and Align. Oh, and I have to keep a diet diary. She also did a thyroid test, which just came back normal, and tested for celiac disease, but I really doubt I have that. D used to only bother me sporadically and now it happens more often and I'm very anxious about it interrupting my day, which doesn't help, of course. Has anyone else experienced this same circle?
