Unhappy fluid in abdomen?

Hi. I'm an 18 year old girl who is worried sick. I have been having some problems for about 3 months now.
1)my stool is loose and when I'm not constipated, I have up to 5 bowel movements a day
2)When I push on my abdominal region, I can HEAR weird noises that sound like excess water/fluid just hanging around my abdomen WHAT IS THAT?!! (this is what most concerns me)
3)If I don't take at least 3 FiberCon a day, I cannot pass a bowel movement, but when I do it's loose and watery.

***I've been to my doctor 3 times now, and every time she tells me its not a big deal and its just nerves and a bad diet. I'M WORRIED SICK!!!! SOMEONE PLEASE RESPOND AND TELL ME WHAT TO DO OR WHAT THEY MIGHT SUGGEST IS GOING ON!! THANKS

I'm 24 and have the same type of problem aswell. I used to go to the loo a lot with blood in my stool, and was diagnosed with something else. For the last few weeks I have a swollen tummy with liquid in (I can hear it). My GP said there was "no gross ascites", and the gastro said I was hypo. I'm not. It's not normal to have fluid there, and knowbody takes me serious. I'm going to have a an Ultrasound Scan for my liver and stuff...... lets see what happens.
