Just when I thought it was safe, I decided to have a lovely meal out with family to celebrate my husbands 60th birthday. I decided to just try and be 'normal' and choose whatever I felt like and have a couple of drinks , nothing too exciting but just feel normal! Wow did that backfire , not been off the loo all day (including a few accidents too) . Feel crap and depressed, so hate this stupid DD. Thankfully no fever so just taking it very easy with food now for a few days. I do suffer with diarrhea on a constant basis together with pain and bloating etc but wow this was bad . Sorry for the rant !!!!

    I have done that a few times. But I have learnt my lesson. I don't drink but I have tried to eat out and have what I want  it doesn't work

    Totally agree with probiotic, and also the IBS.  I have suffered from that for a long time, probiotic has helped, along with diet, and I have gone the other way to frequent constipation - which is easier in the short term as far as fear of accidents, but in the long term is certainly not good for diverticulosis.  I think primarily onions and garlic and maybe tomatoes fueled my IBS-D - you know, all the things that make eating yummy!  Bad also for reflux which I have developed, so I guess I am destined to a life of bland!  On a better note, what you are experiencing probably is IBS since you have had problems before - better that than another div flare!  Best wishes.
