    This may be weird but for the past 2 years I have had diarrhoea on/off accompanied by stomach rumbles throughout the day which stop as soon as I eat for 1/2 hours then start again but can be stopped if I eat again. I have an appointment with my doctor in a few days but has anyone had this before? If so is it curable? Thx

    There are loads and loads of things that can cause stomach upsets and pain. Usually something like a food intollerance or IBS, but could also be more unusual and possibly serious things. It is difficult to know without seeing your doctor and sometimes having tests or using a food diary. They may look into the more serious things first to rule them out, but don't worry if they do, it's usually just because they are easier to test for or would be wise to find sooner.

    If it's on and off for a long time I would personally think it's some sort of sensitivity, in which case you're looking at lifestyle changes (cutting out triggers) and symptom managment. That's just what I would expect tough.

    Try not to worry yourself over what it could be before talking to your doctor cos there are so many possibilities you'd be bound to worry about the wrong thing.
    You might find it helpful to try to think of any possible pattern though- like certian foods, moods (stress can cause stomach issues) or times of day. It will just help narrow things down a bit.

    Anyway you're doing the right thing by seeing a doctor so just wait for that and see what happens. Good luck
