Can anxiety and worrying cause chronic abdominal pain, diarrhea, very smelly poo and lots of undigested food inside the poo?

Start it going?: Anxiety can play a big role in getting this sort of thing kicked off. It leads to a flood of chemicals that hit all your organs, esp the weaker ones. Breathing, circulation, gut symptoms are common. The chemicals are the cause, but anxiety sparks them off. See a Dr for the gut. Ask for a CBT referral to learn Anx Mgmt. You may get a short round of Anx Meds. ...Read more

But many viruses, such as adenovirus and enterovirus can cause runny nose (not a sinus infection) and loose stool, so something like this could account for your symptoms. ...Read more

Stomach pain,pimple rash=AB & steroids, came back =cipro and for stomach pain=Prilosec.Blk specs in stool. Stomach, colon, intest.cancer? MRSA spread?

Nondiagnostic: These symptoms are nondiagnostic without a thorough history and physical examination by a physician. It is unusual to prescribe steroids for stomach pain and a rash and then get another antibiotic prescribed. Your physician who knows all your findings is best to advise you . I doubt that cancer is the problem,however. Further studies seem warranted. ...Read more

I have a severely redundant colon that is also permantly distended by gas, why can stool slowly get through but the gas does not, it goes backwards?

Different processes: Passage of gas is more mechanical process than passage of stool that requires active peristalsis in your colon to pass BM. If you haven't done it, you should have a GI consult for an endoscopic exam for proper diagnosis and management. Use OTC meds for gas and diet modification (avoid beans, cauliflower) in the meantime. ...Read more

There are clearly some gastrointestinal issues with the gas..not that concerned about white pieces after nuts or vomiting after linseed oil.

I changed my diet. Eating small meals every 3 hrs comprising complex carbs and protein. Since then suffering frm excess flatulence and stool leakage.?

Bowel flora : An inadequately-addressed problem of bowel function involves imbalance of bacterial population. Dietary changes and/or antibiotics can bring this on, and correction involves encouraging the lactobacillus and acidophilus organisms to proliferate, suppressing the methane-producing bacteria like e. Coli, proteus, pseudomonas, etc. Try a probiotic twice daily like culturelle, and yogurt twice daily. ...Read more

Need evaluation: The optimal treatment will depend on the source of the problem, and there are many possible explanations for these symptoms, including gynecologic problems and even pregnancy. Many people with irregular bowel habits find that taking 2 tablespoons of soluble fiber (and lots of fluids) every day improves their digestive functions. If symptoms continue you should see a doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more

Probably not: If your symptoms were present before accutane - it's probably not the medicine. I would encourage you to see MD to rule out Chron's disease vs ulcerative colitis. Also if you have had anal sex may need specific STD testing. See MD soon - stool studies may be needed especially if having weight loss. http://www.medicinenet.com/colitis/article.htm ...Read more
