Hello all,

Since i was about 17 (i'm 24 now) I've had this problem which has actually gotten MUCH better over time. I used to get diarrhea every day all day unless i took immodium to relieve it. But for the past few months it has gotten much better. My problem is this, I randomly get SEVERE gas that causes me to pass gas all night and it smells like rotten eggs and feels very hot when i pass it. This will happen usually in the afternoon and continue all night and i will still have gas in the morning, and when i get up to try and have a morning bowel movement, nothing happens. After i've been up for a while i will be suddenly hit by an overwhelming urge to use the bathroom, where i go and have diarrhea. I usually have to go 2 or 3 (sometimes more) times in the morning but afterwards the gas is gone and so is the diarrhea. I think i'm right in assuming that its the effect that red meat has on my body, the past two days i ate fast food and then last night i made hamburgers at home, and the past two days it flared up.

Does anyone have any idea?
