For more than two years now, I have had constant loose stools with virtually every BM. These stools are not quite like diarrhea, but close. It is quite unusual to have a solid stool. I have 1-3 BMs per day. I find myself needed to return to the bathroom and re-wipe several times after a movement due to severe leakage. Also, virtually every time I eat a meal, within 5-15 minutes, I must go to the bathroom to have a BM.
I also have frequent gas.
I eat a normal diet, with at least 1-2 servings of leafy vegetables per day.
I am 47 years old, male, Caucasian.
What is wrong with me? What can I do to overcome this problem?

FrankJohnson... Harry has a valid point. He noted you should increase your soluable fiber intake. It will help bulk up your stools and keep you more regular. Maintain this for a while to see if it changes your situation. Good luck.
FrankJohnson your story was my story.It's like I wrote that 4 years ago.Went to the doc back then and he said I had too much liquids in my body and that I needed more fiber,so he recommended Metamucil.So every night I have a glass and most of my problems ara gone.I use 1/2 cup of water and 1 1/4 heaping tablespoon of powder.It really works.
