More info. Were you recently on antibiotics? Do you eat a well-rounded diet with lots of fiber, fruits and vegetables. Is there any blood in your stool? Have your bowel patterns changed? Try eating three major meals a day and two snack meals--yogurt or fruit-- and getting plenty of fluids, and rest. Keep a log of diet and present to your physician after 7-10 days Hope you are fine.
If I had IBS or IBD, would I have diarrhea all day/everyday? Sometime have loose stools 1-2 a day. Occasional bloating/stomach ache/gas. Lactose?
Diarrhea. If you have either of those, your stools would not necessarily have to be liquid all the time. If this has been going on for a while, you should see your doctor or a gastroenterologist to try to sort it out. Good luck. Read more...
