Diarrhoea after eating out

Posted , 6 users are following.

If I am out for a meal, I usually have to rush to the toilet within 30 minutes and suffer diarrhoea. This doesn't happen at home. I have ruled out allergies. I have also ruled out infection from food as I know I will be desperate to 'go' shortly after eating and others who have the same, don't suffer like me. I haven't got a gastric band so this doesn't seem to be 'dumping syndrome' - or is this possible without it? It's blighting my life. I even considered it may be IBS so take meds for this and charcoal and wind ease tablets before eating out but it is so random and comes on suddenly even after dosing up with meds. I don't know what to do.

    could it be psychsomatic your psyche associates eating out with diarrhoea which may have happened once for any number of reasons and now you worry it wil happen so it does. would a referral to cbt therapy to teach you to break the link mentally would help
