I was talking to a friend about this and she said that perhaps I have IBS which never actually occurred to me.
So it's a bit gross but it has got me wondering. If I eat particularly fatty foods (especially if I've been on a low fat diet for a while) or if I eat too much, I sometimes get such bad stomach cramps and need the loo. I will go and it will start off normal (sorry I don't want to get too graphic) but then go into diarrhoea and sometimes I have what seems like almost a clear fatty discharge. Sometimes the stomach ache will continue for a shortwhile after.
It made me just think that my body doesn't cope with digesting fat too well but, for instance, if I have a doner kebab (I know, most people think these are disgusting but I do absolutely love them - but don't have them often), I will go through this. Really bad stomach aches, passing wind and then I'll have a serious need to go to the toilet which will sometimes pass but it'll always come back until I go.
Do you think this could be IBS? I only ever get it when I eat particulalry fatty foods - which is why I often avoid them - or is it just a simple case of certain things not agreeing with me?
