    Hi all,

    I'm on week 10 and just a bit confused. Week four and this week i have rampant persistent diarrhoea. really really nasty......

    After seeing two health care professionals one said i was consipated and that was causing the diarrhoea and one said i just had diarrhoea. this means i don't know if to take laxatives, that will make the problem worse if its just a bad bum or take imodium and make the problem worse if I am constipated!

    The bad bum is beginning to get rather out of control and I'm now house bound!!

    Not good as 1. I have visitors 2. Its me birthday. 3. I'm utterly mortified as i have just had a loo incident 'near miss'

    Kind regards

    I think that it is probably overflow resulting from constipation however without doing an abdominal palpation it is difficult to tell. I would go back to your GP as having persistent diahorrea for six weeks is not normal and needs proper investigation and attention.
