I AM A 36 YEAR OLD FEMALE AND HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH THIS PROBLEM FOR OVER 10
YEARS NOW. I FIGURED OUT ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO THAT I WAS LACTOSE INTOLERANT SO
I KNOW TO AVOID MY "TRIGGER FOODS". BUT IN THE LAST 2 YEARS MY DIARRHEA HAS
BECOME TOTALLY OUT OF CONTROL. I CAN'T GO OUT TO EAT WITH OTHER PEOPLE BECAUSE
OFTEN WITHIN MINUTES OF EATING I'M RUNNING TO THE BATHROOM. IF I EAT VERY SMALL
AMOUNTS I DON'T SEEM TO HAVE AS MUCH DIFFICULTY, BUT IF I EAT ANYWHERE NEAR TO
BEING FULL I'M EXPLODING FOR HOURS. I AM ABOUT 15 POUNDS UNDERWEIGHT, SO IT'S NOT
FROM OVEREATING. I HAD A COLONOSCOPY A YEAR AGO AND THE DOCTOR SAID EVERYTHING
WAS JUST FINE, "IT'S JUST STRESS". HE PRESCRIBED 1 TBLS. OF CITURCIL BEFORE BED, AND
8 TABLETS OF EQUALACTIN DAILY. I AM JUST GOING TO START ON THESE, BUT AM
CONCERNED BECAUSE THE EQUALACTIN BOX SAYS TO ONLY TAKE THIS DOSAGE FOR 2 DAYS?
THE DOCTOR MADE ME FEEL LIKE IT'S "ALL IN MY HEAD", IS IT OR IS THIS IBS? ANY ADVICE
WOULD BE APPRECIATED. I'M DESPERATE FOR HELP! (P.S.I'VE TRIED TRACKING THE VARIOUS
FOODS I EAT AND CAN'T SEEM TO FIND ANY CORALATION TO WHAT I EAT AND THE DIARRHEA).
THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
