I was going through a period of great anxiety. Then I started noticing that my stools were soft, but my bowel movements were almost normal - about once day and the odd second, sometimes. Anyway I went to the Doc who loaded me with all kinds of medications from Flagyl to Analgesics for 2 weeks. From the day I started medication my very soft stools became almost normal. My stomach rumbled all day long. After the medication I was ok for about three days, then had soft stools for a couple of days and now my stools go from hard to - i think - normal soft. Only problem is went I clean up - no matter how hard the stool, there are traces of water. Do I still have diarrhea, is that why my face still looks gaunt, or is my doc right when he says I looked gaunt because of worry. And yes my stomach rumble intermitently, but stops when I eat something. Please anyone who can help?
