Chronic Diarrhea, what could it be?

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hi guys. Ive had diarrhea every day multiple times a day for the past 6 years (since i started recovery from my earing disorder, which is completely better now). Sometimes its better, sometimes its worse. Right now for the past week or so i've been having diarrhea every hour or two. I am dizzy and weak and dehydrated. It seems like no matter what i eat i still have diarrhea. Sometimes i have to go during my meal. I get repremanded at work for taking too many bathroom breaks. I cant keep going like this. Does anyone know whats wrong with me?

    Yeah guys I'm not stupid I'm not looking for a diagnosis here I'm just nervous about seeing a GI doctor so I figured I'd see if anyone had a similar experience and knew what it might be. You guys don't have to be so condescending.

    You may have Gardia a stomach bacteria which causes the symptoms you are experiencing. Ask your doctor if you can be testedimage.

    Kaylajoy, I have never experienced this, but I believe you have intestinal infection that has remained with you for far too long. Have you tried antibiotics? For a quick relief from diarrhea try chewing 3 small guava leaves. It's bitter, dries your saliva but it works. Please see a doctor. Wishing you a speedy recovery! Much love 😗

    You have had such a terrible condition for 6 years and never saw a doctor but continue to live with it. You ask if anyone has had it and what is it. There could be many reasons and only a doctor could tell you after running some tests.

    What disorder did you say you were recovering from? Hearing? Eating? Try a food diary to see if any foods are causing diarrhoea. Food diaries can help to pinpoint a pattern that you may not be aware of. However, you should see your doctor for tests and diagnosis. We cannot tell you what is wrong with you because very few of us are doctors on this site. Only your doctor can give you an accurate answer.

    I know how you feel as It makes you not want to eat. As previously suggested start keeping a food diary and maybe go on a bland food diet, as well as drinking lots of water

    hello. dear. your symptoms are not common ones. it would be very difficult for this forum to help you. i think eating different foods low in fats might help. But as the comments here are about food mapping. You need to see a GI and a nutritionist. They will help you more than just guessing on how to help you here. I would seek medical help. please seek help . You are a strong person. For dealing with this that long. Happy healthy days for you. Bless You.
