I have been going through this on and off for 12 years. I try to think things are getting normal, then I eat any and everything and it gets worse. If I make my mind up and eat rice & chicken & rice & chicken & rice & rice, and take imodium, equalactin, and citrecil(sp)and try to decompress(for several days), it might straighten out for a while. Then Boom, usually stress brings it on full blown, like this stuff isn't stressful. It is almost like I can tolerate things I eat for a while then the scales tip and I can't get reset without the diarrhea(and usually I am finding alcohol is a real "trigger" too). Go to a wedding or party, have a few drinks or wine and i'm messed up for a while. It seems that usually this stuff goes in about two month cycles for me, good then bad, then really bad. Makes me nuts!
