MBLori Posted March 1 Report Share Posted March 1 Hello. I have had episodes of diarrhea and constipation for as long as I can remember. The thing that has changed over the past few years is having diarrhea and or immediate need to have a bowel movement (that isn't diarrhea) with little to no pain or warning. A lot of these episodes have been when I've been on a lengthy walk but it's happened at home as well. Today I had only been walking for less than 10 min (previously feeling totally fine) when I had a sudden, small pain that lasted only a second (but it was "that" type of pain that sometimes indicates it's going to continue and get worse) so I headed back home. Even though I was so close to home, I couldn't hold it. So now I am researching fecal pads and feeling like this is crazy. I'm only 54 and I don't want to wear "diapers" for the rest of my life! I had a colonoscopy just about 4 months ago (unrelated - it was a screening for colon cancer due to family history) which all looked fine according to the doc. If I have IBS or ?? that is severe enough to cause these incidents, wouldn't something unusual have shown up on the colonoscopy? Thanks.
