IBS Diarrhoea

Posted , 6 users are following.

I suffer from daily morning diarrheoa.  After breakfast most days and then again after lunch (especially if I eat out). Its getting worse and I am shortly going on holiday and need to try and control it a bit, given I will be out of trips most days straight after breakfast and probably won't have ready access to a toilet.

Has anyone has this problem and what did they do ?  My only thoughts are NOT to eat if I am on a trip or take loads of anti diarrhoea tablets

    hI, Does your doctor know you have daily diarrea? have you had any tests?  How long has this been going on for?  Have you tried the low fodmap diet?

    I would see a doctor and ask his advice.

    I've not had a normal BM in 8 months after semonella poisioning and have been diagnosed with post infectious SIBO which is most likely causing my bowel problems?

    It's not great to not be normal and so I feel for you.  I know that imodium or gastro stop helps with diarrea but not sure if this would be an ongoing thing you'd want to take.  Maybe even ask the pharmasist.  I know some people in here take certain products to help with it, but I'm not sure what.

    Could you be fructose intolerant or gluten? (celiac)? do you have energy or lack of appetite or under stress? All those things might be a reason for your diarrea?

    Goodluck.

    You could talk to a pharmacist about this if you don't have the opportunity to see your doctor. An alternative to anti-diarrhoea tablets is probiotics in capsule form, which have worked well for me. I assume you have had IBS confirmed? If not it's definitely time to see your doc.

    Try taking an Imodium before bed.

    If you have had your gallbladder out, you could have IBS or BAM which are complications of this surgery.  Ask for a SECHAT scan to check for BAM which is often missed by doctors an put down to IBS D because symptoms are similar. Try a food diary or The Low Fodmap diet to see if you have a food intolerance.  You could try Imodium while on holiday to control your bowel.
