I haven't been to a doc for this yet, but I'm probably going to go after I exhaust the diet/supplements I'd think.
Probably at about 21, I started noticing my "fast" digestive system. Back then, I had to go to the bathroom ONLY when I ate certain foods, specifically "Buffalo Wild Wings". Over the next 5-6 years, I could count on one hand the number of times I had an urgency attack.
Then around 5 years ago, I started noticing I was reacting to more foods than before. Basically I'd have a problem maybe 20% of the time after I ate something from a restaurant whereas basically never prior to that.
Now, I have ZERO cramping/bloating/pain with this. It's just in/out of hte bathroom and I'm good to go. If my diet is ok, I might have 1 loose stool per week.
The thing that's hard to figure is how much my anxiety about it is playing into it. We've been staying in more recently because we have an 18 month old son and I don't seem to have the problems when I'm at home. So I wonder how much of my problems are in my head? When I'm near a bathroom, no problems no matter what I eat.
The good news is if I ever NEED relief I can take immodium and it stops me up no matter what I eat. I try to limit that to Max once per weekt hough.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what to take to make my stools more bulky? My frequency isn't that bad, it's just when they are softer I feel like it's a little more urgent.
