I have had diarrhea for over a year, watery. I have had a series of bad things happen in the past two years -- lost big job, mom died, divorced -- and have had go be put on antidepression drugs. The doctor has done several complete blood tests, endoscopy, colonoscopy and two those complete xrays (including drinking the nuclear stuff) of the colon, stomach, pancreas, etc. He says that he's convinced my diarrhea is stress related and he wants me to get out more, try to forget it, take my medcine and just take some over the counter stuff for diarrhea. I have found that eating a certain cookie has provided bulk and apparently helped my diarrhea for the first time in over a year. I wake up at night, can't sleep well and have general insomia to go with this, sometimes dreaming, talking in my sleep and sweating. My question to you guys is: does it sound reasonable that this is stress related? And problem severe IBS to go with the stress? What do you think?
