Yellow diarrhea, stomach cramps & severe stomach/intestinal gurgling...

Edited , 14 users are following.

hi everyone.

for years now I have been suffering weekly with debilitating bowel problems. Ive had many tests and have been put on many medications (anti-diarrheals, antibiotics, etc) in hope of getting whatever is wrong with under control. i know i do not have Crohns or UC.

However, the past two weeks I have noticed the brown pigment of my stool disappearing more & more and now as of today my bowel movements are nothing but yellow. When I clean myself up it is florescent yellow on the toilet paper and very mucus looking. it's extremely hard to eat. as when I do, my bowels go off immediately and I can spend hours on the toilet while taking Imodium after Imodium that does nothing..the bowel gurgling & swooshing sounds are also very intense.

Anybody suffer from this and if so did you ever get a answer on what exactly could be wrong with you?

    i had violent diarrhea when i first got IBS. the one thing that helped me was seeing a herbalist. i existed on dry toast and black tea for about a fortnight. then i gradually became able to eat some well cooked food. i tried the fodmap diet a few years ago which helped me expand what i could eat, without a severe reaction. i mostly manage it by diet and now have the opposite problem of constipation plus reflux, for which i take Domperidone which is a bit dodgy. i also had problems with my gallbladder, and had that removed.

    I have suffered with similar issues for years. every time I went to the doctor they would tell me that there was nothing wrong, even the tests never showed any issues. I was put on Lexapro ironically for IBS. To my surprise, it really helped. Another drug that I tried was mold tag ready. I live in the United States and I am not sure if either of these drugs are available where you live, but they were very helpful. My issue was more constipation and diarrhea, so I have also tried Linzess, Amatiza, and Trulance. The Trulance is the most mild and, as of right now, seems to be working the best for me. I have noticed all my life it is always been trial and error, and unfortunately sometimes things work for a period of time and then all of a sudden stopped working so I am always switching up regiments. However, I feel like the doctors are only a resource, I feel like I personally am the one That is helping my situation, which is unfortunate but I guess we know our bodies better than anyone else. Hope this helps.

    Could be IBS. Do you get any pain? Have you tried the Low Fodmap Diet or a food diary? Try excluding insoluable fibre from your diet.
