Another Poop Question

Recommended Posts

Okay...so when I was camping the other day (and shortly after eating a huge amount of bacon fat), I had to run to the lovely pit toilet and deposit some terrible poop, that I can only assume was fluffy, like the last time I had a bacon reaction -- based on the smell and the feel (you can't really look into a pit toilet to gauge the damage).

So today (3 days later?), my poop is like that again, only slightly less vigorously so. Fluffy looking. Amazingly smelly. Floating - to the point where it is hard to flush down. Not really formed, more like blobbed loosely together.

It's unlikely, though not impossible that I was glutened. I'd had rice chips mustard flavor on the way to the camp (the day previous to the poop), and tonight I had tortilla chips I'm not sure about...it almost seems more fat related or something, though today I did not eat much fat (well, some coconut oil maybe).

Any ideas?

p.s. was a C celiac sufferer, not D, so it's all new to me.

p.p.s. the water where I was camping was questionable, but I don't think I drank any of it until after the episode at the camp.

Sometimes I get reactions like that to severe stress. I have not had any possible gluten contamination, but my stress load is extremely high right now, and my bowels are a mess to put it mildly. Every day, foul smelly, floating, or pure liquid diarrhea. Amazing how your body reacts sometimes. Check your foods again just in case.

Same bacon as always: beelers gluten free. The one possible gluten source was the day before: Lundberg Rice Chips, which are supposed to be gluten free, but I've heard on here otherwise.

Gluten would explain the extreme fatigue and weird brains...I just wonder what the difference is between pancreas related problems/D, and gluten ones. Could it be the fat/bacon? Or did I get glutened?

THe sad thing you could have been CC'd or something esle!!! It's hard to figure out sometimes...which is super frustrating!!!

I also get D when I'm stressed!!! Right now I'm super frustrated b/c I got CC'd 2x a resturant where I have had No problems and it's the only one in my town where I can/could eat safely!!! Jeez

I have the EXACT same problem right now, its been going on for 5 days.

Mine is also coupled with a lot of water/slime, as frequently as 6x a day.

I cannot seem to find the cause nor a solution.

The latest doctor just put me on a new antispasmatic med to help deal with the pain that is accompanying it all.

I am doing my darnedest to stay hydrated through it and hoping it is on its way out.

My fingers are crossed for you too!

The "fluffy" sounds like the "classic" celiac symptoms to me. They say you don't absorb the fat real well when you eat gluten therefore causing the floaty fluffy looking bad smelling poo. I have always been the "classic" sufferer and not a C sufferer.

Yeah. Based on the fact that I still feel terrible (sleepy, stupid, stomach, bowels), I'm thinking it must've been gluten. I'm going with the salmon burger dinner or the Lundberg Rice chips - both of which claimed to be gluten-free, but who knows for sure.

It's just extra irritating because eating seems to exacerbate my feeling icky, and I'm wasting away, and hungry. So what to eat for dinner? I'm thinking of going with something I'm just stone cold used to, like eggs and hash browns. I don't have any good "fall back" foods, even rice seems to bug me sometimes.

meimak - good luck to you.

I wonder why we have to pee so much when we have D -- doesn't that seem backward?

Bully4You - Thank you so much for posting this, I thought I was going crazy. I have been so careful and thought that this was something "new" or another problem... not that I ever want to be "wooo hooo, yes, gluten is kicking around my guts" but it is nice to know that its most likely the reasons for this current symptom.

I have been peeing much more frequently as well. And the noises from my abdomen have been loud and interesting.

I don't know how you or others feel about The Water Cure, but I have found it helpful to stay hydrated.

(The condensed verision: Take your body weight, divide by 2, drink that many ounces minimum, of warm, celtic salted water each day.)

My doc told me I was "urinating frequently" because my bowels were so swollen/enlarged that it was actually pushing against my bladder constantly, therefore no room for the urine. Made sense to me after I went gluten-free & now I can go 1/2 the day without peeing

Bully4you, were you sharing a grill that could have been contaminated? I can get sick if someone uses a plastic spatula that's been used on gluten foods and then washed & used on my food. (the BF won't do that again!)

the rare times I do get glutened, I find eating something completely gluten-free settles my stomach. ie.tapioca bread toasted (I even toast in the oven on a piece of foil.)
