Re: Sandy coloured stools........

Hi, I have the same exact symptoms as you. I was diagnosed with IBS last year. My stools used to be a dark brown also (when I was normal) and then became a yellow-ish sandy color with a horrible stench. My stomah also fills up with gas and it is uncomfortable to live like this. The only thing that has helped me is I am taking Citrucel three times a day which solidifies my stools and makes them a darker color. I also drink a lot of water during the day and drink peppermint tea for the gas. Is the gas very bad for you too? Do you know what caused you to get IBS? Try the remidies I'm suggesting and let me know if they help you. You can also try taking some digestive enzymes to help you digest the food you are eating. Take care and feel better and know that I know exactly what you are going through........Lisa
