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.

User avatar Hi agobeil,
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.
Sincerely,
Theresa Jones, RN
