Constipation: If you have seen your doctor and he has determined that your constipation is not due to a process of concern, than the most common cause, seen more in young women, is a sluggish colon. Recommendations to treat this are : increase fiber, hydrate well. If this does not work, or if you feel worse than stop fiber and replace with Miralax (polyethylene glycol). Make sure your MD is following you ...Read more
Itaking antibiotics2weeks for pyelonephritis. ive just had horrendous cramps and urgency to pass stool. Mucus loose stool and some solid with nausea.
I began antibiotics for a skin infection. A few days in had green soft stools. Now have light brown formed stools. With abdominal cramping. Cdiff?
Not C diff yet: To have soft stools only a few days into the course of antibiotics and then to have those stools regress back to formed stool, I do not suspect C. diff yet. I would expect C. diff to start a bit later, perhaps 5-7 days or more into the course of medication. My guess is that you are having a direct antibiotic side effect. Of course, if symptoms continue or worsen, check with your doctor. ...Read more

Stomach cramps: Sounds like it is constipation which is very common in 8 y/o rather than IBS. Use peaches, pears, and prunes, eating the fruit and drinking the juice. Plenty of water and perhaps Miralax (polyethylene glycol). If you child has not been seen for this then get a check up first. ...Read more
Is having one or two single loose stools (not diarrhea) a week IBS? I treated myself with loperamide. Now constipated and I have mucus? IBS?
IBS more complex: While loose stools and constipation can be part of the picture of IBS- simply based upon those 2 symptoms one cannot make a diagnosis of IBS. It is more complex so I recommend you see a physician so that an full history with blood tests, stool tests, and other diagnostics can be run so that a complete workup can be performed. www.healthtap.com/drsaghafi Key Code: PDXFNR ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
