    I am having frequent unholdable diarrhea with gas. This is making it very hard to live with, since most of the time I cannot even make to the restroom in time.

    I feel for you - I have basically been a prisoner of my apartment for over a month on two separate occassions in the past year because of UC flares that had me running back and forth to the bathroom.  Have you seen a doctor about it??  I know it can be hard to GET to the doctor, but hopefully they can help!  Good luck!

    went through this for 15yrs and the doctors never had an answer, then 4-07 i ended up in a er and found i had full blown crohns so all i can say is it wouldn't hurt to get tested asap so if you do have it you can get treated and back in control of your life. because for so many years i could not eat at work or when i was away from home for the same reasons. good luck

    Hi TMB,

     

    You asked this question quite some time ago, but I was wondering if you had a diagnosis and effective treatment plan that you would like to share.  I do hope you found relief.

     

    I am not a medical doctor, but it does sound as though you could have been suffering from ulcerative colitis.  Of course only your doctor can make a diagnosis.

     

    I hope you are well!
