Explosive is an understatement! My problem is at home or at a restaurant. When I eat it's like the food goes thru me immediately! My stomach begins to cramp or is it gas? Whichever, I have to use the bathroom immediately!! I was diagnosed (hope I spelled that correctly) with diverticulitis ( that may be spelled incorrectly also) which is an inflamed colon. I was told to incorporate more fiber into my diet. I think I eat pretty healthy, I'm 48, 112lbs...not so uncommon, but this problem makes me very uncomfortable and embarassing. I'm afraid to go out to dinner or to anyone's house for dinner due to the fact of my need to urgently release!!! This condition has really disabled my lifestyle and I hate it. Any suggestions?

Any suggestions?I feel your pain! I have lost a considerable amount of weight, first bite in my mouth I immediately hear it in my intestines or stomach, grumbling gurgling, then out it comes, however, sometimes I have the urge to go but then can't!! I feel really full also! I am so hungry and love cooking, love watching the cooking channel, I just can't eat!!! If you find help, please share with me!! I'm going to a doctor 2 hours from home Thursday, I'll let you know what they say. And no, it's not in my head, I don't need a CT of my head as suggested by someone else!!
