Any change of bowel habits for a prolonged time needs to be investigated.
The sooner the better. X x

If you get change in bowel habits that lasts for more than 3 weeks, you should go and see your GP.

There are various conditions that need to be ruled in or out straight away.

any change in bowel habits should be discussed with your GP. Better safe than sorry

Look up bile acid malabsorption - one of the leading causes of loose stools

Eating a healthy diet could be what's causing it, I have IBD and ate some salad for 3 days in a row, yesterday I pooed myself! I should be embarrassed but it's happened before and luckily I was at home. It's life now, healthy food is in fact not healthy at all for me anymore!

I think I may have an intolerance or something. (Evidenced by people almost throwing up if they venture near the toilet after me) blush

I'm too lazy to try keeping a food diary.

I used to have normal poo. Then around 9 months ago got a strange virus. High temp for 24hours, felt a bit grim, slight loose poo a couple of times and gone. Then had really loose poos. Didn't connect it with the odd virus and it wasn't a d&v bug, but saw gp and had hideous tests, which all normal and worked out it was this virus which had caused it. Gp said 6 months to recover and it pretty much did. Bowels still easily upset if I have lots of fruit, but no where near the urgency of before.

Why have you not been to see your GP?

Certain foods do this to me. I eliminated certain foods and am mostly ok except after lots of booze and forget I can't eat toast

Following with interest.
I'm a martyr to my bowels!

Get yourself to the doctors!
It might be IBS and a change of diet needed but it could also be inflammatory bowel disease (Crohns or Ulcerative colitis)..or even bowel cancer... probably not but it's possible.
You'll need a blood test, possibly a poo sample and preferably a colonoscopy.

My DS2 has Ulcerative colitis and that's how his first presented.

It could be anything from IBS to an infection. If I were you I'd go to the Drs and say you want a sample taken for tests.They will find out hopefully whats wrong with you.

This will obviously be tmi!
As the thread title suggests, I can’t remember the last time I had a solid poo. Every time I go it is diarrhoea and often I feel it coming over me like a wave, almost like contraction pain.

I’m not super healthy but also don’t eat rubbish all the time. I did used to have healthier poos and my diet hasn’t really changed from that time.

What could be causing this? I looked at ibs symptoms but I don’t feel lots of cramping, or lose sleep over it etc. How can I get healthier poos? It’s embarrasing if I feel it coming after eating at someone’s house.
