I am a pretty healthy lady in my mid twenties
i drink only water and lots of it. I have an occasional diet coke or hot tea and I usually have a glass of red wine at night
i work on my feet all day and i go to the gym 3-4 days a week
I eat whole grain everything and always eat my veggies, mostly spinach and broccoli and supplement my diet with multivitamins (which i have to take at night otherwise they make me nauseated....i think it's the zinc)
I eat little meat, but lots of protien through beans and veggie burgers and dairy and such. healthy right?
so why is my digestive system so screwed up?
i am constantly gassy (the fiber i guess) and not the burping type.
sometimes the gas is severe (extreme lower back pain and such)
i have very frequent diarrhea...at least 3 times a week
i normally have 2-3 bowel movements a day, but they are either of the loose type or really hard pellet poop that sinks which i hear is bad.
when i have to go, i cannot hold it......at least not for more than about 10 minutes. i have extreme pain and discomfort and it makes for very unfortunate social situations especially anywhere without a bathroom nearby.
this has been a lifelong thing, but as i get older and see how other people work, i realize that mine seems to be abnormal.
is it abnormal? why can't i poop like a normal person?
