smhair  I have been diagnosed twice in the past year through colonoscopy biopsy that I have MC. I have had this condition for three years but just finally made myself see a gastro doc last year.  Doctor has tried every med that typically works for MC.  I have diahrea 4+ times per day.  My stomach is very loud but not painful or gassy feeling.  It just roars around loudly.  Within 30 min. of eating I will have a blowout as I call it.  Did I mention I am a runner.  So that presents another issue.  Yes I have had a few accidents along the way.  When it hits I must go immediately.  I  have frequented every large tree along my country route.  Only med that gave some relieve was Prednisone.  However, I will not use that again - horrible drug.  Four months later I can't get the added 7 pounds off that I gained while on Prednisone.  Now doc wants to try a mild antidepressant that is used for IBS.  I am confused, and basically it is interring with my life.  My personality is one of a worry wart with much anxiety especially when it comes to this topic.
