I have a cycle going on with imodium. I get the runs take imodium, get stopped up and then get the runs again and then take imodium again. I really want to break the cycle and need help. I get so much pain from the imodium or from I don't know what from. What else can I do when I get the runs other than imodium? My dh says sometimes people get d when your body pushes the poop around hard stool. I just feel so frustrated and am getting discouraged. I am eating gluten-free. Should I stop dairy? I really don't know where to turn. Thanks for listening. I have to do a lot of driving this week and really don't want to have to take imodium. I don't want to have an accident either.

Have you looked into "dumping syndrome"? Do you have a gallbladder? (I do mean your own gallbladder)

Keep a food journal to track down another food intolerance.

I would say yes to dropping dairy and soy for a bit to see if it helps. If you do get some relief after dropping them wait for at least a couple weeks and then add them back in one at a time and see if the D starts again.
It is not uncommon at all for us to be intolerant of other things and dairy and soy top the list.
Also is your house gluten free or just you? If others in the home are not gluten free are you doing all we need to do to prevent CC?

I second the gallbladder idea. When i still had mine, after i went free, it would act up then dump the acid :ph34r: -shiver- bad memories.
