 chaziesue - Sat Aug 25, 2007 10:33 am

i am a 40 year old female.Two weeks I went out to eat at a buffet and right after I ate I had diarrhea . ever since then ,every day I have diarrhea. I don't have any pains I just know I have to go right then and there. it happens if I eat or don't eat. now I'm trying to eliminate things from my diet to see if that works. I'm, only drinking water cutting back on drinking juice. mind you I only drink juicy juice. its not as bad as a lot of the juices out there. I don't eat greasy foods. no fast food places I don't know if it could be stress or not. there is no blood in my stool. it is a brown color and i have a gassy stomach.. I do have some anxiety problems but I never had this problem...I also have acid reflux but i control it with herbs when it inflames... its just borthering me because i don't know whats going on.

User avatar There is always the possibility that you have contracted a bacteria or parasite. You can have the stool examined in a lab to determine if either of these are your situation. There are also other conditions of the stomach such as irritable bowel syndrome. At any rate, you should see a doctor if this continues.
