Stool with undigested food, frequent bowel movements. Pain after eating. Reason?

Hello, I have had mushy stool for weeks now. After every single bowel movement , almost without exception, it takes a really long to wipe. It looks like there is even undigested food. I often have to go within 30 seconds of eating anything. I also have these pains right after eating that feel almost like hunger but they are painful, and then I feel lightheaded. Help!

Hi there,

Thanks for writing in.

You haven't mentioned how old you are? The possibilities I can think of , with this brief history, are: gastritis, peptic ulcer, irritable bowel syndrome, .

Any blood /mucus in the stools?
How many bowel movements do you have in a day?
Maintain a diary, with the name of the food consumed, the number of bowel movements etc.

I think it would really help if you could visit either your primary care provider or a gastro enterologist to thoroughly examine and evaluate you.

In the meantime, Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Drink warm water, at least 8- 10 glasses of water a day.
Regular exercise 30 minutes a day for 5 days a week, promotes digestion and regulates good bowel movements.
Destress, by doing yoga and other relaxation techniques.

Hope this helps.

Dr. Divya Kuttikrishnan
