I have had stomach problems for a few years now. I used to wake up in the middle of the night with diarrhea. Sometimes I would turn cold and sweat really bad, and twice I passed out in the bathroom floor. This was before I had children and after my son (4yrs) was born the frequency and severity seemed to slow down. More recently I have been having problems, which stopped completely while I was pregnant with my second son, only to return again after he was born.
I usually notice it when we have eaten out in town, but it also happens at home too. Sometimes within 5 minutes of finishing a meal I have a very strong, sudden urge to have a BM. I have to find a restroom very fast, then I usually end up going back and forth from the bathroom for a half hour. Sometimes it starts as diarrhea, but other times that is not until the second or third visit to the restroom.
I am visiting a new primary care physician tomorrow for a regular wellness checkup, and am wondering how to bring this issue up. Also wondering if anyone here has a similar situation.
Thank you so much!
