What's Wrong with Me?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Firstly I'm rushing to post this as I need to get to sleep and it's quite embarrassing. So it isn't in too much detail.

It's been a while now (weeks, maybe 2 month) I've had loose bowel movements but not runny like diarrhea. Increasingly coming common is after a meal I'll need the toilet around an hour or 2 later. I've also noticed an increase in smelly gas especially in mornings.

On top of this I've noticed that my stomach appears to have swollen especially towards the bottom. I've not been having any pain.

Any suggestions what this could be?

    I would suggest you keep a food diary along with a symptom diary. Keep this for 7 days then take the results to your GP. 

    Ive had bowel issues for over 30 years I was sent to Whitechapel hospital in London and they were most helpful.

    Well I haven't touched dairy at all today and I have felt a lot better. I'll try to avoid it for a while and see if my stomach goes down too

      Have you tried what I'm doing and avoiding dairy for a while? I haven't touched coffee or milk today and I've noticed it's improved a lot.

      I'm going to continue though just in case today was a fluke! :P If it gets better then I guess it's either the caffeine or lactose.
