OK. I'm not proud to be sharing this, but this looks like a proper place so here goes.
Last week after work I went out and had quite a few beers with the guys. The next morning I got up, went to the bathroom and had a BM made up of almost entirely a yellowish liquid. It felt like crapping acid. No big deal, I thought. Just the result of a night of unusually heavy drinking. Everything will be fine by tomorrow. Well...it's 6 days later and I'm still excreting this yellowish acidic fluid. It doesn't matter what I eat or drink, it all comes out the same. (And no, I haven't had a beer ar any other alcohol since that night last week.)
I've tried Tums, Rolaids, Mylanta, Immodium A-D, and even a prescription drug designed to slow down peristalsis. NOTHING has worked so far. I've looked on the Internet for various symptoms and have deduced that I might have an infection, a fecal impaction, or a problem related to some other internal organ than my intestines.
For fear of dehydration I've been drinking lots of water and Gatorade. I feel fine other than every few hours I feel like I'm going to crap my pants and I have to drop whatever I'm doing and run to the bathroom. It's even interrupting my sleep. Every 2 or 3 hours at night, I'm awake and on the toilet for awhile.
Anybody have any ideas what could be wrong with me or have any surefire cures for diarrhea? I'm at the end of my rope here, and since I don't have any health insurance (welcome to America) a Doctor is my last resort. I'll be willing to listen to anything anyone has to say. I just want a solution. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
