Diarreha for 5 months
For the past five months, I have had diarreha almost every single day. It usually only happens in the morning, and usually I only go once a day but the stools are loose and watery. I have also had occassions where just mucous comes out. I have been to my family dr. and he said it may be IBS but symptoms usually come and go, not stay for five months straight. He thought maybe LI, but I have been on Lactaid and although for a week I thought my symptoms were getting better, now they are back to "normal" I think my next step is to see a specialist....my question is....can you have IBS if you have diarreha every day? After reading some of your posts, I am going to try Metamucil. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this.
Forgot to mention I have tons of gas at night and in the morning!! It rumbles around my stomach and then explodes out of me in the morning.
