    KT47...first of all are you a female?  I assume you are, because I wanted to ask if you are going through the menopause?  This happens to a lot  with a change with our hormones..but it soon rights itself...hope this helps but if your a male...I;m sure you have been screened to show IBS, which it sounds like to me.

    Just like to know what test do they have to do to check for IBS they did coeliac test came negative, did gastro said mild gastritis , but doctors say IBS what other test did you do to confirm IBS, Bloating, distended stomach take colfax when I need it and constipation try to go at least once a day. With IBS you can get diarrohea and go through constipation too it alternates.

    Hi KT47

    As you only get diahorrea periodically perhaps you are eating something that doesn't agree with you. Keeping a food diary of what you eat and drink and

    noting when you get diahorrea, it may coincide with something you are eating or drinking. I would try this for a couple of months and see what emerges, you may be suprised!!....Best wishes...
