Hi, My Name is Monica, I'm from Mexico City, and I have 27 years old, and I have the exactly same problem, well actually "I was", funny but like you my mom and dad got divorce, and I got married last year, and my problem began some months before the wedding, like you I had diarrhea, well in that time, It was June from last year in the nights, I went to a doctor, and she told me that I had a bug, she prescribe me some antibiothics and some pills and I was "fine" for some months, I tried homeopathy and I was ok....
For a background when I was a kid I had two bugs escherichia coli and another one that I don´t remember and I had a looong recovery, after that I was fine, but like you I always had been nervous, I suffer anxiety, if my birthday was coming, my stomach was a mess, and things like that, but I ate of everything and I was fine, until I was in high school, my problems came back, but I was fine until last year.
So the problem became bad, when like you I ate teriyaki chicken, and after one hour, my diarrhea came back, but I thought that the dish was to greasy, but after that, every day, or almost, I got diarrhea after breakfast, I went like 3 times, and some days I had constipation, but what really worried me was the diarrhea, so first of all I went again with my Homeopath Doctor, she is really good, but the problem was that she didn´t ask me for any tests, so finally in my desperation, I went to a gastro, and like you he ask me for a colonoscopy and many tests, (for my simptoms and my background, I thought I had a bug again), but I thought that a colonoscopy was very aggressive for a bug, so finally I went to another gastro, I only made the blood tests and stool tests, and everything was fine, except that I had some anemia, (since the last year from now I lost like 5kg, I've been always skiny so imagine!, I look like an anorexic model, lol) well, this doctor, or my heroe, asked me for all my background, and he checked all my tests, and he checked my tummy, and he told me that my colon was inflamated (that was about 3 months ago), and he put me into a diet to control this, and some medication, and you know what??, from the first day I felt great!!!, He's checking me every 15 days, and I feel better and better, the diet is very restrictive, but works just fine along with the medicines.
I still have phobia for the diarrhea or to catch a bug, I clean all the food, but I feel just fine.
I totally understand you, and let me give you the name of the medicine.
I don´t know if you can get it with the brand name but also I will give you the sustance.
Espavén Alcalino TABLETS
Hidróxido de Magnesio
The medicines has no secondary reactions, there are "light" and you will see the improvment from the first day.
I found something similar to the espavén in this link, it's the first drug MagalD:
For the Espacil I did't find anything, but I will keep looking, but check this with your doctor, works just fine.
And my doctor that he also is a nutriologyst strictly prohibited me this kind of food, I suggest to do this too while you find a doctor who really takes you seriously:
Dairy (you can only drink skim milk, skim cheesse like cottage)
And that's it, if you want to contact me, send me an email to
And don´t worry, you can beat this, you will be just fine!!!
