Normal variation: Since your child is acting well, the stools that you observe could be from a change in diet or from an increase in water as you describe and especially if there was an increase in juice or sweetened beverages. If there is fever, cramping, abdominal pain, or blood in stools, further assessment would be recommended.

When I eat eggs or waffles or drink milk products I have loose stools and the feeling of having to go all the time?

More food diary: I would suggest you keep track of a more consistent, thorough food diary to see what other foods you are reacting to. Is there pattern of dairy? gluten products? You could also try a lactose free diet for two weeks to see if that helps the situation.

If stable, wait: This presentation is almost always viral. So long as water intake is OK and your child doesn't become listless all should be well. I presume you know about the BRAT diet.

Don't drink: It sounds like you've been a rather chronic drinker. I don't know how much you drink but if you fear going into withdrawal then it would be best to sign in for detox. I don't want to see you get dehydrated from the diarrhea which he described as severe. You should definitely stop the alcohol, but only in safe setting, and regardless of what your blood test showed, you need to see a G.I. Doctor to find out the exact cause of your diarrhea. It may be the alcohol or it actually could be something else. Push fluids nonalcoholic fluids and contact your doctor at the earliest possibility. If you're getting too dehydrated and have someheadaches lightheadedness dizziness and leg cramps, you should have someone drive you to the emergency room for fluid replacement. Best wishes.

Why do I get diarrhea every time I ovulate every month?

Tricky: Cannot say in your particular case. There are several reasons for diarrhea. Gut secretion like in cholera would not be expected to be associated with ovulation. Minor gut irritation and changes in gut motility can occur from anything in the abdomen.

How come every time I eat something dairy or fast food I get diarrhea?

How come every time I eat something dairy or fast food I get diarrhea?

Intolerances: About a 1/4 of the adult population does not make the enzyme needed to breakdown lactose, the sugar in bovine milk products. If it is not, it will act as a stool losener/acidifier & you can get watery poops/cramps. You can take the enzyme in pill form that helps avoid this. You can also have selective intolerances to other food items. If you keep a diary of what to avoid you may narrow down the agents

I get diarrhea every time I eat there is no pain any where but it happens within 5 minutes of eating it has been going on for almost a year any ideas?

IBS: This is most likely an irritable bowel syndrome. Can you relate the symptoms to specific foods? Taking an antispasmodic medication like bentyl (dicyclomine) 1/2 hour before meals often prevents the gastrocolic reflex from being overactive and thus makes postprandial diarrhea less likely. A gastroenterologist is best qualified to diagnose and treat this problem.

Every time I eat, no matter what or how much I get horrible pains and diarrhea.?

Sounds like you: Need a formal evaluation by a doctor in person. There are so many gastrointestinal issues that could be responsible for this. The only way any reasonable strides will be made, in terms of getting you better, is that it starts with a formal comprehensive history and physical by your doctor! Best of luck.

How come every time I take a laxative I get diarrhea? Is this normal?

Fiber: Maybe the laxatives you're taking are too strong. Try a more natural method to maintain regularity, eating a high fiber diet, and possibly supplemented with psyllium (e.g. Metamucil).
