I am new here and will try to keep this post short; would like some advice and/or peoples experiences. I am chronically severely constipated and have had a recent bad flare up for three weeks after an endoscopy. Two days ago I finally had a good BM but then about an hour later started having explosive diarrhea (graphic I know) and had that all through the night along with a lot of lower abdominal cramping and gas. Yesterday I ate a piece of toast and was very nauseous and had bad cramping... almost like period cramps that lasted throughout the night (had another loose BM in the night). I have emetophobia so it was a nightmare. It has been very hard to eat (nausea and phobia) and take my daily medicines. I have GERD and am in the middle of doing many tests and medicine trials to determine other digestive disorders but with no success. Has anything similar happened to anyone else?
