I’m a little embarrassed about this. It seems that recently, I am constantly going to the bathroom. Regardless what I have to eat, the next day, I’m afraid to leave the house for fear of needing a toilet, immediately. No blood in my stool, and no D, just stomach cramps than running to use the bathroom. Fortunately, this only lasts a few hours; however, I feel like a prisoner in my own home and I’m always fearful to venture out. After these episodes, my body feels so drained and listless, I usually lay down and sleep for a few hours.
There have bee no major changes in my diet and family life is good.
Has anyone else experienced anything similar to this? What’s causing this? It’s getting so I’m afraid to eat because I know what is coming later.

Don't walk behind me, I may not lead ...
Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow ...
Just walk beside me and be my friend.
