    Diarrhea

    Iíve had bouts of IBS for years, mainly constipation with both dull & cramping pain. Iíve had the odd but of diarrhea but one or two Imodium tabs always sorted that out. Since Tuesday though, Iíve had watery diarrhea several times a day which Imodium doesnít seem to touch, at least only for a few hours. No pain at all, & no blood showing, thank heavens. I did wonder if it was a tummy bug but my husband hasnít been affected, and he would be likely to catch it, wouldnít he? Iím inclined not to think itís IBS, or there would be pain. My HA is thinking of the inevitable BC, but Iím comforted by the fact that I had a clear screening test in Feb. Not asking for a diagnosis but has anyone else had anything similar? I donít want to bother my GP in the current situation.

    Re: Diarrhea

    Have you been under stress lately? Enough water, fiber, in most cases diarrhea will clear up on it's own in a week, you could also be having a bad IBS flare up and if you are still having periods every month and or going through the change, that can make your IBS worse.

    Thanks! It did clear up pretty much after a week. And I've certainly been under quite a lot of stress lately. [Luckily, I'm 8 years past the menopause. No periods - hurrah!]
