I'm a 54 year old female and I have a rather irritating condition. I have frequent bowel movements - sometimes 4 or 5 times a day - with small, hard stool, often difficult to evacuate. Also for the past 20 years I have had a certain amount of flatulence after eating or a drink, which is very embarrrassing. I'm in good health and get plenty of exercise. I've researched extensively on the web, and wonder if anyone else has or has had this and what can be done about it.
