Starting Tuesday night after consuming some french fries from a local burger joint, I found myself visiting the bathroom. I had a couple episodes of diarrhea, progressing from more solid to more liquid. I also had stomach pains which I believe were a result from gas pressure. Both became infrequent, but as of 4:12am Thursday morning, I am still experiencing symptoms. Now, the diarrhea is very infrequent but still occurs. It is small amounts, not very watery, not very messy, and usually preceded by gas pressure and slight pain. Bouts of stomach pain (not very painful overal, more of a minor discomfort with relative pain) come and go, also infrequently and quickly. The symptoms all but disappear when I am lying down. They affect me most when I am standing or walking around. The other thing I ate Tuesday was a salad made of bagged lettuce (not spinach), creamy basil ranch dressing, colby jack shredded cheese, and deli-sliced honey turkey.
I have not been diagnosed with celiac's disease, but my Mom has and I have been mostly living as if I have it as well. Any suggestions would be wonderful. I would rather avoid going to the doctor if at all possible. I am not experiencing any dizziness, fever, nausea, vomiting, muscle pain, joint pain, headache, backache, rectal soreness, loss of energy, or loss of appetite. The best description of how I feel is like I haven't eaten all day, i.e. my stomach is "growling".
