I think it is some form of malabsorption but may not due to disease process. intolerance to certain food may cause it .if it is more following fatty food intake? avoid the that may precipitate it.it will go on its way after a couples of weeks but consider some signs that will signal you to contact a physician.they are as follows
1.continued diarrhoea
2. loss of appetite,weakness,fatigue,wt loss
3. large, offensive, pale, greasy stools
4.Blood or excessive mucous in the stool.
5.cramping, bloating, chronic
this type of flatulence may occur in gall stone disease,so have USG of abdomen to exclude it.

Hi Doctor,

I have been suffering from severe loose motion for last 15 years. It is diagnosed as IBS- diarrhoea from last 2 years. And I am continuing with the medication for IBS, but no improvement yet. Everyday I have loose motion 8-10 times. Usually it happens in the morning very frequently.

The stool is watery with mucus. I have gastritis also.

Please guid me in this regard.Please suggest some medicine or specialist.

I am currently being tested for IBS, as I have had severe bouts of constipation and diarrhea for well over a year. I have occasional blood, pencil thin, loose stools and external hemorrhoids. I am also experiencing a constant pain in my upper abdomen, coupled with severe nausea and a feeling that I am going to get sick. I had to submit a stool sample today, and I noticed that there were a lot of dark green, leafy looking substances in the stool. They were tough to the touch but tore apart when pulled. I haven't eaten any sort of green vegetable in well over a week. Any thoughts?

I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome with diarrhea. Zoloft is the only thing that has seemed to help with the painful symptoms. I am pregnant now & cant take my zoloft. The first few months i still had my IBS symptoms like normal, but now in the 8th month.. my symptoms have completely cleared up! I am wondering if this could help determine what causes my IBS since it seems to be gone right now?

I have been diagnosed with IBS, had gallbladder and appendix removed, had igunal hernia repaired twice, and now have to have the mesh removed and the surgeon said he will suture site closed. Now i have pus in my stools. I have either constipation and have to use otc drugs to get movement, or I have diarrhea. There has to be an answer. Any suggestions?
