My guess would be IBS, but again, that's just a guess.

It could be a virus, parasite or an unbalance of the friendly bacteria in your Gastro system caused by food poisoning, a bacteria or yeast infection, or a round of taking an antibiotic??

But --These symptoms indicate that you are intolerant to something that you are eating or probably drinking with every meal. All people that have IBS are intolerant to one or more foods.

The real culprits are coffee, dairy products like milk or wheat products but it could be anything that is common to every meal??

You should start keeping a log of what you eat & drink all the time to try to ID something??

Diarrhea every day is really not good since it washes alot of the important nutrients out of your system before they get absorbed--- they are needed for good health!!

You are doing the right thing by going to see a Doctor!!

I certainly wish you well--
God Bless---Harry

I had the same thing and my doc said to lay off the dairy to see if that was the problem. Sure enough! I'm better. I drink Soy Milk with my cereal and limit my cheese intake. No yogurt, cottage cheese, ice cream etc. It's also helped with my weight loss. go figure! I thought it was because either I was getting older (35) or had sometype of disease! My doc just laughed at me....

I hope that's all it is for you, but make sure you visit your doc to make sure! Good luck!

If you are intolerant to dairy products--- it is usually the milk sugar(lactose) that causes problems and yogurt uses up 99% of the milk sugar in the fermentation process. So, it should be OK to eat.
