    You may have irritable bowel syndrome ("IBS"). There is a board on here for that and it might help you to read many of the posts to see other people like you. By the way, IBS can be very impacted by stress.

    Have you seen a doctor? Do you take any anti-diarrheal meds? You may need to see a gastro doc. I had diarrhea all the time when I had active IBS. Are you losing weight? With IBS-D, you don't usually lose weight.
    I'd try some of the OTC meds if see if they help at all. I would also consult your doctor.

    Hi,
    I've has serious IBS since I was 18, I'm 56 now. A few yrs. ago I went on a gluten free diet and it literally cleared up completely in a week. Plus, you lose weight on GF diet! That was a bonus for me.

    Take care,
