    Question Sudden onset diarrhea :(

    I have IBS, which has been under control ever since I started taking Caltrate back in September.

    About a week and a half ago, I started getting a sudden onset of severe diarrhea. It lasted for three days, went away and came back. Now it comes and goes in the blink of an eye. One moment, I'll be feeling fine; the next, I'll be feeling awful. The longest it lasted this week was a day-and-a-half; now it lasts about anywhere from five minutes to a half an hour.

    The stools are explosive and watery. I had extreme nausea during the day-and-a-half long episode; so intense that the doc put me on an anti-nausea pill that they give to cancer patients.

    Today I had three episodes...

    I turned in my stool samples Thursday morning but have not heard back.

    Has anybody experienced this before? Does anybody have any idea what could be causing this sudden onset diarrhea?

    Is this typical of IBS? I posted over in the IBS board when I first got sick, but got no response.

    Thanks a bunch!
