: Hi Guys,
: I'm a new person. I've been experiencing months of cramping, bloating and diaorehhia, usually about 10-20 mins after I eat, and it doesn't matter what I eat! I could eat a salad and it does the same thing! I usually get sweaty and the pain is gone as soon as I go to the loo.
: You guys would know better than a doctor if this sounds familiar. Do I have IBS? Thanks heaps.
Sorry about your problems but it doesn't sound like IBS. The symptom of having a BM within 20min. after eating sounds like your gallbladder is putting out too much bile salts and if it is not re-absorbed by you small intestines and gets into the colon----it will produce diarrhea. This type of problem happens to some people after gallbladder surgery and some people with an overactive gallbladder.
I suggest you take a water soluble fiber supplement like psyllium seed husks. It is a bulk stool forming agent that will regulate your bowels and it's safe to take daily.You can find it in a powder or capsule form at most health food stores. Start off slow and increase it and it may cause gas when you first start but it will go away.
