Urge to evacuate immediately after meals. What could be causing this?

Hi. Almost always I have the need to go to the bathroom (evacuate) after only about 10 min after I eat a meal. It is difficult and embarrassing especially at a restaurant or with friends because I have to excuse myself or sometimes cannot leave the restaurant (ladies room) when everyone else wants to hurry along. Is something wrong with me? Can I prevent this? Thanks for your help

Thanks for posting your query.
If this is of only recent onset, infection has to be ruled out. A stool analysis has to be done.
But if this has been for a long time and has been recurrent, then irritable bowel syndrome is a possibility.
A complete blood count, stool analysis, blood glucose and thyroid function test may be done.
Meanwhile you can consider taking probiotic supplements.
