I am having the same problem at the moment but I am probably worse. Meals almost always give me to urge to go (and if not immediately, about 30 minutes after they will). I also feel bloated shortly after eating and continually pass smelly burning gas (the type of gas you have when you have an imminent onset of diarrhea).
My stools are mostly loose (rarely nicely formed, rarely completely diarrhea). They float and are yellow in colour. I've been through a plethora of examinations (colonoscopy, faecal calproctectin, stool tests, urea breath test, SIBO breath test, blood test) and all have shown nothing.
I've tried numerous things (antibiotics, immodium, antispasmodics, anti-depressants, chinese medicines, supplements, anti-fungals, herbs, diet changes) all of which have had little to no help. I am not sure what to do.
I've ordered a bottle of Nexabiotics, which I hope to try. I am also thinking I might try Xifaxan (Rifaximin), an antibiotic known to help (and cure) IBS, to see the effect.
