    Burping, gurgling tummy, diarrhoea

    Hi everyone. Iíve been great with my health anxiety lately - but just had a lapse 😔

    Iíve recently had a gurgly tummy, been burping a lot and had diarrhoea. My tummy feels very unsettled and Iím worried it could be something sinister like bowel or stomach cancer.

    Iím 30 years old and in fairly good shape. Is it likely this could be an issue? Iíve been having loose stools for a while, but Iím not sure if thatís due to me moving to a more veggie diet. But the recent gurgling, burping and diarrhoea has come on over the past 4/5 days.

    Iíd be grateful for any thoughts, reassurance or anyone else whoís had similar?

    Thank you - I hope my health anxiety gets better again after this.

    Could be IBS or probably cos of the diet change.

    Too much fibre, or introducing too much fibre too quickly, will give you the shits and your colon won't know what's hit it!

    This will also create other gastro symptoms like gurgling, excessive wind, and stomach cramps- especially if you're hammering flatulence offending veggies like cauliflower, broccoli and cabbage.

    Throw in some good old health anxiety fear because of these (expected) dietary changes - and you've got IBS.
