Can U Be Constipated And Still Have Diarrhea
I suddenly have diarrhea and also constipation. I go to the restroom about every 30 min but still feel the need to go shortly after. Possible cause?
Loose stools is a symptom in which a person's stool (poop) does not hold its shape after it goes into the toilet. Instead of remaining a shaped piece of poop, the poop spreads out in the toilet bowl water. Very loose stool is called diarrhea. Loose stool can be caused by infections, certain foods or drinks, ...Read more

My stool was soft and exited fast but still had shape but little paper like pieces around it. Is this diarrhea? It only happend once, been constipated
Possibly: Diarrhea can be described in many ways. Sometimes by the stool consistency, and sometimes by the frequency. The definition is definitely relative and individual. What might be frequent for one person, does not constitute the same thing for another. What defines diarrhea is based on your own baseline. As to what caused the change in bowel habits, that is a complicated answer. ...Read more
I have celiac & low iron. I've been gluten free for a year, I don't eat out and VERY careful in what I eat. I still have diarrhea and constipation ?
Talk to your Dr: 1) Your doctor can check antibody levels as a surrogate to celiac disease activity. If they are up you may be eating gluten in hidden items (for example if something is fried in oil that also fired wheat containing food). 2) Another consideration is small bacterial overgrowth. Talk to your doctor to see if this fits. 3) Alternatively you may be in the rare group who are refractory to the diet. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

See your doctor.: The safest laxatives for the elderly population is Senna S. If it's safe for the elderly, it's safe for adults.

Been constipated. Took 2 exlax a couple of days ago. Still having diarrhea and now intense stomach cramps and pain. How much longer will this last?
No way 2 know unless: ...you indicate whether you have recent exposures, are taking antibiotics or other medications, have Irritable Bowel Syndrome, know the cause of your recent constipation, etc. As you can see, too many variables to predict your (or anyone's) particular response to the drug you chose. Live and learn, right? ...Read more

After CT scan, doc said im constipated. Ordered me to take miralax (polyethylene glycol) for 5 days, but stopped after 3 from getting diarrhea. Help! still feel constipated?
Let's define problem: Doctors define constipation as stools less frequently than once every 3-4 days. Patients feel they are "constipated" when passing hard or small volume stool, or they feel full ; bloated. We know from your x-ray you're not blocked. We don't know if your gut is sluggish or your rectum works correctly--these can be tested for (sitz marker study ; anal manometry, respectively). See a GI specialist. ...Read more

My IBS is well controlled but I still have periods of constipation where I have to take a laxative. Why does the laxative cause loose stools?
Unlikely: Yes, but usually in the elderly. It would be very unusual for someone your age to experience this. Diarrhea can be due to constipation if you become impacted (stool stuck in the colon). Watery stool can get around the impacted area but again, this is a condition associated with the elderly. Try eating foods high in fiber and drinking lots of fluids. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
