    Basically every single time before I go football training, half an hour before, I poo loads and it comes out really really loose and 4 times the amount I usually poo:confused: My poo is usually hard and Ive heard anxiety can cause more bowel movement but im not like petrified, just a little excited like everyone gets before training or a match.

    Or does no one get like this?

    Um... I've never heard of it.

    Do you do any specific warmup exercises or eat/drink anything specific before training?

    Surely it's a good thing; means you can enjoy your half-time orange slice without worrying about rushing off to the loo.

    No, its purely psychological but I don't know why, I just feel a bit anxious before training and it all comes out loose.

    yeah it doesn't bother me as its always happened before training but when I think about it its odd, why is no one else like this?

    Sounds completely normal to me. It's amazing what adrenaline can do to your bowels.

    It could be stress related, you might want to get checked out by your doctor.

    i cant believe more people havent heard of this before!
    if u go to the doctor they will most likely say its IBS. which is basically the name they give to any bowl disorder and is an unbelieveabley vague diagnosis as it can range from what u have, to constant needing the toilet, to severe constipation and everything in between.
    as long as it doesnt bother you then i wouldnt worry (and as long as it doesnt contain anything it shouldnt)

    for some people it can be food related or completely psychological. stress before an exam interview or match or whatever or sometimes even when u dont even realise ur stressed.

    I would be surprised if it actually is irritable bowle synrome, as it doesn't sound severe enough, because its normally coupled with stomach cramps etc.

    If it is just restricted to before a match, i would guess its only nerves.
    But if your worried i would just see your GP just to make sure.

    IBS is a very broad illness and doesn't just restrict itself to a couple of symptoms. I was diagnosed with IBS when I was 17 and my mum also suffers from it. We both have very different symptoms.

    I dont think its IBS, he didnt mention anything about cramps. Everybody blames any undiagnosable stomach problem on IBS.

    It is perfectly normal if you are only having this problem in the situation that you describe. If you start to get any other symptoms go and see your GP

    basically because thats what ibs is. anything to do with bowels/stomach/digestion that doctors cant diagnose so label it with ibs.
    you dont have to have stomach cramps to have ibs. just like one symptom is diarreah (sp?) while another is constipation. pretty hard to have both of them at the same time.

    My family suffers from IBS and both my mum and I get what the OP described. (Ewww.)
    Mostly I get in when I'm stressed or if I eat too many rich foods.
