Question: overactive bowel movements
|asdf - Mon Aug 21, 2006 2:10 am|
i'm really concerened because for the past year, every morning i wake up and i have a bowel movements, sometimes i go twice before leaving for school just to make sure i'll survive the drive. then after i eat my 1st meal of the day, i have to go again. then after dinner, i must go again. this has become extremely frustrating and inconvinient because whenever i have to go to places that are somewhat far away, i get super paranoid when i don't know if there are restrooms near by.
i'm not sure what i can do to help my condition, or what condition i have? please help... thank you so much.

Have you had an evaluation for any gastrointestinal disorders such as, for example, IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), etc.? If you have not had a physician's evaluation I would encourage you to do so to identify the causative factor of your symptoms.
