I have been suffering with super sudden onsets of diarrhea for 20 years now (I’m 30). I basically need to go with no warning and I have to find a loo within minutes.
Having seen many doctors over the years, not one of them told me it’s IBS but they can rule out any other issues (i.e. Chron’s disease).
The sudden onsets of diarrhea are quite random. Sometimes I am good for several months, sometimes it’s multiple times a day for a week. There is no correlation between the foods I eat and when it happens – sometimes I eat loads of dairy, wheat and fruit with no issues, sometimes a cup of tea with milk sets me off.
I am not taking any medication or supplements at this stage.
I work at weddings for a living so most weekends I need to know that I won’t have a sudden onset of diarrhea in the middle of a wedding ceremony!
I would love to hear from others, maybe someone can help me! Thanks so much in advance for any insights, shared experiences or advice!
