I think that I got glutened, or something else got me. I'm having back and forth diarrhea and constipation. The diarrhea is just like muscle spasms not full fledged runny stuff. What do I do? I had two bouts of diarrhea with constipation in between them earlier this week.  I had to take imodium for the diarrhea earlier this week because I was 45 minutes from home and had to drive myself and there wasn't anywhere to stop between where i was and home. But since then I haven't been able to go at all. This is the first time I have had this problem. Either the spasam diarheaa or problems with constipation. I think that the trouble was gluten because I have gotten all the other gluten symptoms I usually get. Any advice would be helpful.

dear Googles, spasms diarreha is my thing as well after a glutening. I mean: first the diarreha then the spasms diarreha. I took an Imodium too last week: of course it is better to stay home and let it run its course and not mess up with medication, but sometimes one has to. I have no answers other that we must wait for it to pass...

Thanks so much. This is a totally new symptom for me. I DO NOT like it. My problem is that if I don't work i don't get paid and i can't afford not to get paid.. So I usually have to deal with meds unless it is a weekend. I did not even know this was possible. I'm sorry that you get it too, but nice to know I wasn't just going totally crazy and it wasn't my imagination.

Ohhhhh diarrhea, how do I hate thee? Let me count the ways......

 

This is definitely a common problem! When necessary, go for the Imodium. Ya

gotta do what ya gotta do. Which includes copping a squat in the woods when

necessary. I find that loading up on flax meal and yogurt in the days after an

episode help prevent the constipation that can follow Imodium use.

I rely on imodium too... I have to travel a great deal for work, I never go anywhere unless my bottle is full :D  I will have to try the flax idea for afterwords so I can maybe escape the constipation.... the things we put up with LOL
