Does anyone else have diarrhea after every meal?  (Or just about every meal?)  If I do not have Imodiums in my belly before I eat, it is coming out within minutes of finishing eating (sometimes even after a few bites).  I am going back to doctors on Thursday to look for some other answers.  I need to find something that I can take to help me be able to eat more.  I feel like an outcast when family/friends want to go out to dinner & I have to make up some excuse because I don't want the embarrasment of having to excuse myself every 10 minutes.  I don't mind taking the Imodiums, but sometimes even taking them I am VERY limited to what I can eat (plain chicken sandwiches, or turkey sandwiches, nothing very tasty!) sad

What your describing is actually quite common. A lot of people with IBS have intestines that are very sensitive. Even before putting something in your mouth, your body will react to the sense of smell in food. You will salivate, and everything will "wake up". Same thing when you eat, its like an assembly line turning on. When you chew on food, your body is getting ready for the digestive process. When you have IBS, your digestive process is either too fast or too slow. Your system wants to get the job done however its not at the pace as a normal person. Certain senses respond differently which may be why you can't tolerate certain foods which is very common in IBS.

I am very relieved to hear that.  Most of the topics I have read have been people having attacks after certain foods, I was hoping I wasn't the only one who had it all the time.  I sometimes can feel my stomach starting to rumble just thinking about eating!  I just started taking a probiotic and am hoping that may help me out some.  I am also going to go on an anti-anxiety, anti-depression med hoping that may give me some help also.

Did you have your gall bladder removed you are describing what happens to a lot of people who have had it removed and the bile acid is always flowing and causes this to happen.

Calcium carbonate taken with each meal may help you get control of this. You must start with `1/2 tablet with each meal and increase to a full tablet if needed. If you want all the info email me and I will forward to your.

No, I haven't had my gallbladder removed.  The Calcium Carbonate-is this only for those who have had it removed?  If it can help me, I am definitly wanting to give it a try!

The calcium can help even if you have not had the gall bladder removed. Do you have the info on it. How you should take it and when to take it. Email me and I will send it to you. Or you can find it on this message board also.
