    gallstones do typically cause diarrhea..

    i think it's when you're having a flare up when they cause it the most.

    i haven't got gallstones but don't think my gallbladder is being very friendly at the moment. grumbling and feels hot like it's emptying something warm

    sounds like your gallbladder flaring up but since you mentioned ibs and gerd you are having symptoms of IBS but the diarrhea sounds like gallbladder as well

    Yes, iI too have IBS, GERD, Spastic colon, nervous stomach, a herniated umbilical cord, & other digestive diseases so its difficult to say which one causes which symptoms. Yet, dealing with these challenges for most of my life, I believe that they all interact with one another. I had to have mu gall bladder removed because of a large gall stone blockage, and this has presented more negative symptoms to add to the long list. These however are better managed with a digestive enzyme call digestive helper from a Company called Wellness Resources. I wish I would have found them sooner, & before my surgery. Best wishes Brandon.

    I feel for you.

    I would try Loperamide Hydrochloride Capsules for the diarrhoea.

    If you find they help you can get them on prescription.

    Hope this helps.
