If I were you, I’d go to the doctor.

Do you normally have stomach issues?  This happens to me but I have IBS so it’s pretty much par for the course for my life.  Try to take some pepto bismol or immodium and drink LOTS of fluids to keep from getting dehydrated.  If over the counter medication doesn’t help at all..  I would call your doctor.

 

ETA: You answered my question.  If you have IBS I don’t think you should be very concerned, especially since you feel fine otherwise.  Just stick to a bland diet, take pepto and hydrate.

I’d head to the doctor.  Also, drink LOTS of fluids!  Diarreah can dehydrate you very quickly, so make sure you drink more water than you think you need.

I was just going to suggest to drink a ton of liquids to keep you from getting dehydrated – – @Moose1209: beat me to it Laughing

I am so sorry – it can’t be comfortable. Have you changed your diet at all? I would call your dr’s office and let one of the nurse practitioners know, they’ll have the best suggestions re: what you can do to help IMO….Good Luck Girl!

Sorry if TMI in return, but a similar thing happened to me last summer after a trip. I ended up going to the walk-in clinic (like the ER, but less serious), and they did need to give me fluid IV because I was getting dehydrated. So, I second going to your doctor, or a walk-in clinic type thing, if you have those in you area.

They also did a full blood work up on me (so be prepared for a hefty bill if you don’t have insurance) and nothing was wrong, so the doctor told me to stop taking Pepto Bismol, which I had been taking, and to take Imodium AD instead.

I never figured out the cause, but it went away shortly after I started with the Imodium, which you can get at a regular drugstore.

If you have IBS, I know it sounds counterintuitive, but I wouldn’t be worried. That’s definitely one of the way it manifests itself — I went through that for three years of college, nearly every day.

Watch your fluids and stick to the BRAT diet. Are you more stressed than usual? That was my biggest trigger, that and dorm food.

Ditto @ribbons.. It’s hard when you are planning a wedding but try to limit the stress in your life.  That’s the biggest trigger for my IBS as well.

If you do go to a doctor, see a GI, not a GP. And oh lordy, not a surgeon, that was my mistake 🙂

Fruit can definitely cause BMs (and I’m not talking about bridesmaids here).

This happened to me last summer but I had it for 2 months… Yes, two months.. Go to the doctors and get some tests ran, you may just need an antibiotic, could have picked up something somewhere.
