Frequent urge to poop

Posted , 6 users are following.

I've been having symptoms of IBS since the end of May. I'm wondering if it's normal to feel frequent urge to poop but only passing small amounts? Some days my stomach will behave and I will only go once or twice, others I feel like going all the time.

    Yes I may not go for a few days... Then I do go several times a day. Its annoying but I think common with IBS

    Sounds like IBS. Have you had a confirmed diagnosis of IBS from your doctor?

    hi layna, that sounds like ibs to me. go see your doctor, you may be able to get some laxatives which soften your bowel so it's easier to go. good luck!

    i suffer from this as well. youre desperate to get to the loo but when you do you find you are constipated and you have to strain to release it. The end of May isn't a long time though so i would speak to your doctor if you haven't already
