ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
For the past 5 years the diarrhea has progressed in which I spend 3 hours each morning eliminating what I ate the day before. When I eat each meal I have to go to the bathroom during and after the meal. I have bloating, gas, burping all day and night. Sometimes I go to the bathroom while I am sleeping. Nothing works to stop the diarrhea, and the doctors I have gone to aren't interested in helping me find out what it is and how to stop it. Medicines don't work. I have changed my diet to a lectin free diet and I still have diarrhea. I have to get up really early in the morning so I can eliminate everything so I can drive to work. Sometimes I don't make it to work as I end up going in my pants. I can't always make it to the bathroom. I no longer go to restaurants as I can't get to the bathroom fast enough. I don't travel anymore as I cannot control my body. I can't always tell when it is going to come out, it just releases. I do drink a fiber drink to help and it does a little, but not always I have eliminated the foods I feel that can cause the diarrhea, but I still have it. I don't know what to do anymore, nothing helps. It is stressful to go to an appointment because I am not sure if I will have an attack and have to eliminate in whatever situation I am in. I don't want to leave my house anymore because I can't trust my own body.
