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.

I am currently taking ranatidine for acid reflux and about 6 months ago got over an infection of camplobacter. I have been having at least 2 bowel movements a day which I usually just have one and now I am having a sharp stabbing pain all day that comes and goes under left breast on rib cage.

I always have a bowel movements first thing in the morning, usually within the first hour of waking up. Lately I have been getting nauseous just prior to going to the bathroom, feeling incredibly sick. I run to the bathroom and once I go, I feel fine and the nauseous feeling goes away. My body has also decided that it doesn t want to digest food very well. I am passing a lot of undigested vegetables and grain, including carrot, red peppers, black beans, beets, and whole quinoa. I get some light cramping and pains in my sides and lower abdomen, and my stool is changes consistency all the time from soft and loose, to very firm. But it is never watery or diarrhea. My doctor suspects IBS but has not done any testing yet. Are my symptoms characteristic of a more serious disease, like colon cancer or Chron s?
