Hey all, some things:
1) I've had loose bowel movements / diarrhea for about 5 weeks now. It started when I began an antibiotic for acne. Once I had diarrhea from it, I stopped taking it (I stopped taking it when visiting China). However, in China, the diarrhea continued. It's continued for about 5 weeks now (3 weeks after returning from China). Sometimes it's very watery, other times it's very fluffy and in loose little chunks (sorry for the gross description!). Before this, I've had pretty regular, normal bowel movements, so it's very unusual. Any ideas what it might be? Could it be a parasite?
2) Any reason my diarrhea would have chunks of food (vegetables) in it? I tend to eat a lot of veggies. Is this normal for diarrhea?
Hoping to head to the doctor this week, but figured I'd get some ideas here!
