My husband has bad cramps, diarrhea \u0026 sometimes constipation everyday after he eats something every day. Does this sound like irritable bowel syndrome?

Not likely: The bad cramps you describe make the syndrome more worrisome than irritable bowel which is more annoying than disabling. I would be concerned about inflammatory bowel disease or pancreatic disease. This is the sort of problem that will require consulting with a gastroenterologist, some testing and procedures. ...Read more

Stool test detected d.fragilis but doctor ignored it. Hyperactive bowel sounds are scaring me and I have acid reflux and nausea, no vomiting or diarea?

Right choice: You need to get a relationship with a physician who takes time to explain and who you trust. Managing reflux is tricky. Finding a cause for nausea may be a challenge. Gluten enteropathy, Whipple's, and Crohn's are concerns but I'd ignore "pop" claims about that amoeba. ...Read more

Saw a dr say you can't have diarrhea and constipation at the same time on a question I saw... But can't you have both with a bowel obstruction?

Diarrhea/Constipatio: If you have bowel movement and without having abdominal pain, unlikely you have bowel obstruction. You can have severe constipation that leads to obstipation/stool impaction. Stool becomes hard at the distal end, but soft/liquid at the proximal colon. The liquid portion will leak, which resulted in diarrhea. ...Read more
