How worried should I be?

Ok so I have been having some problems since around June of 2007. It begin as abrupt onset of diarrhea. Leaving me no time to make it to the bathroom and causing me to soil myself. I began tracking the things I was eating to see if there was a trend. Coffee was definitely causing a problem, dairy products, fast food. So I have pretty much eliminated those things from my diet. This helped some however I continued to have these random boughts of diarrhea. If I am going on a plan or a long road trip I have to take immodium as I never know when the diarrhea will hit and when it does I have very little time to make it to the bathroom.
About three months ago I noticed the sensation of something pushing on the right side of my ribs. I thought it has stomach fat (I have gained some weight over the last 5 years) However most recently it has become more annoying. Not painful but the sensation that something is trying to push my ribs out of the way. I am also now having periods of constipation.
I have a Dr. apt in a week but was wondering if anyone has experienced similar symptoms and what would cause them. I am beginning to get worried and the diarrhea is really affecting my work and personal life.

Do you know how long your mom's symptoms went on before she got checked? I am going a week from today. Thanks
