For the past week or so I have had quite a few occasions where I've had cramps and diarrhoea right after eating a meal. Like literally having to dash to the bathroom within 5 minutes of eating a meal. I can't identify any trigger foods and it hasn't been after every meal but has happened at least 3-4 times over the past week or two. should I be worried or should I see if it calms down? I don't want to rush to the doctors over this as they can be very dismissive of generalised bowel issues (everything always gets fobbed onto ibs).

But I'm going abroad on holiday in a few weeks and I don't want this problem then :/

Wow are you me? I'm exaxtly same and going on holiday in a few weeks.

I feel really drained from it. No one else in the house has it so im assuming not a bug

Sorry no help but you aren't alone

@flippyflapper Yeah I'm pretty sure this isn't a bug either. It worries me because there is probably an underlying cause but I don't know what. Have you sought any medical advice? Usually I'd take an immodium and get on with my day but I've run out sad

No u haven't, although my mum had similar and had camera down she had h-pylori and gastritis.
I tend to get it sometimes every few months.
I forgot I used to take milk of magnesium which helped I may pop to shop and get some, if I can find the energy.

I've just eaten some toast and the noise my stomach is making sounds like it won't stay put for long
