Hello. I am a 37 year old women who today had a very sudden attack of diarrhea. I've been doing some online research, and it sounds like fecal incontinence. I was outside walking, and felt like I had to use the toilet, but not urgently. I had no stomach ache or cramps, and have never been constipated. All of a sudden, I felt like I couldn't hold it in, and quickly made it to a bathroom. I thought I had made it in time, but my underwear were extremely soiled (also down my legs, etc.) with feces about the consistency of oatmeal. I had not felt this feces leak out. I have never experienced anything like this before, and had no symptoms leading up. What could have caused this, and is it likely to happen again?
Thank you for your help. This is a wonderful service!
