20, female, healthy weight. This has been going on for a few years. I'm bloated all the time, mostly mild to moderate. 8/10 meals: Within 30 minutes after I eat--doesn't matter what--I feel crampy and rush to the bathroom. Nothing comes out. Then 1-3 hours later I have explosive diarrhea that feels like my butt is burning. Bloat goes away slightly then I'm fine until my next meal but sometimes I have really bad constipation 1-2 hours after the diarrhea.

All my doc said is "IBS, take Mirulax" I tried Mirulax for a week then stopped because I was getting worse FAST. My doc then said my bloated stomach was "just fat" Umm, no. It's like a balloon. Not like those poor starving kids in Africa but sometimes it gets pretty close. What's weird is that fruits and vegetables, cooked or raw depending on type, are worse than a hamburger.

Any ideas? I have my gallbladder and I don't smoke, drink, or do drugs.
