Ok...I don't know if this is a stupid question, and I know it is sort of gross, but what color are your stools? I am D type, and I was taking imodium daily to help control it, so I would have D about every other day, with no bm on the odd days. It would usually start out with a somewhat hard bm...of regular color(brown), then the color and hardness would change to an orange color and I would soon be going to the bathroom 3-8 or more times in 5-15 min. intervals. It is almost like my stomach is producing too much acid or it just isn't getting neutralized. I have been on prevacid before with no help. I was just wondering if everyone is this way, or if my sour stomach is what is causing my D. I have had no tests done, except stool samples, so I don't know. Just curious, sorry about the yucky details...hehe.

Not gross at all to us hon, actually VERY normal. I always can tell what color the toilet water will be by consistency. Liquid is always very yellow.
