I have been experiencing sporadic episodes of diarrhea over the past 4-5 years. It occurs most often after eating too much food particularly if I eat and drink too much liquid with my meal. Usually within about 30-60 minutes after eating to much I feel an extreme need to use the restroom and after excreting one or two loose stools feel fine. It doesn't happen everytime I overeat but I seem to go through periods where I'm more sensitive to it. For example, in the past month I have had about one episode a week almost always directly correlated with with an overindulgence in food either eating or drinking too much or too fast. Despite the recent increase in sensitivty over the past month I experienced no bouts of diarrhea for almost 6 months before that even with over eating. This periodic diarrhea has been occuring over the past 4-5 years in much the same manner. I am a female in my mid 20's in otherwise perfect health. I have no other symptoms, no fever, weight loss, abdominal pain, vomiting etc and after keeping tract of what I eat during these periods I cannot correlate my diarrhea to any food in particular including milk, protein, fatty meals etc. I guess I am just wondering if it is relatively normal to experience diarrhea after eating a large meal or if it sounds like something more serious. After doing some research own it seems like I might have a mild case of irritable bowl syndrome or perhaps just a sensitive digestive tract but i was wondering what other people think and if anyone else experiences these symptoms.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
