    Hey,

    There is something wrong with my digestive system. For the last few months, I always have to go to the toilet to do a No2. I don't know why this happens. Certain things trigger this, if I eat something then almost immediately I have to go and poop or if it's cold I need to go.

    What's up with me?!

    Too much fibre perhaps?

    If no solid matter is coming out, then it could be because you're eating too much eggs, baked beans, cheese or drinking too much fizzy drink :awesome:

    It could be so many things: Food intolerance, virus etc. The only way you can really sort this is going for a chat with the GP and seeing what they recommend.

    Do eggs make you poo?? I thought it was the other way round, that they make you constipated and "egg-bound"!

    OP, do you actually poo every time you feel you need to, or is there not much there when you try to go?

    It's more than likely food intolerances.
    Keep a food diary and try and connect it. Could be multiple things.

    And you need to go and get a blood test for celiac disease. I don't know if you've read about it, but it's an autoimmune disease caused by gluten. And if you carry on eating gluten - it damages your bowel causing ibs symptoms, and can make you intolerant to like everything.

    But you must get a blood test before you remove it from your diet.

    deffo see the dr first but i can relate

    it could be nerves (worrying when you're next gonna go) or that you've started eating a bit more

    it can help a lot to try and go regular every 24hours...i set aside 20mins every morning after eating a bowl of cereal, often including fibre

    hope this helps but do see a dr initially

    excess/undigested protein increases your intestinal lumen osmotic pressure leading to diarrhea because lots of h2o is dragged into the alimentary canal....

    mmmmm i always poop 30mins-1hr30mins after my meals.
    I cant even remember when it started to be like this.. but the earliest i can remember was 5-6 years ago?
    Should i be worried about this?
    I thought it's just because i have a fast metabolism...

    I agree that it sounds like IBS, I was actually diagnosed with this the other day and had the same problem as you describe. Seeing my GP helped as she gave me some tablets to stop my insides spasming which in turn slows down digestion so makes you want to poo less...but it could also be something like a food intolerence or maybe something more serious such as Crohn's disease - but this is less likely, and can be easily found out by a quick blood test. If you want short term help, things that might make you poo more could be too much fibre in your diet, caffiene, fizzy drinks, gluten and sugars like chocolate and sweets. At the moment I'm cutting out most of these and am only mainly fruit and vegetables as these tend to settle things down more but I would say a trip to the doctor is your best bet as this could be a number of things and you will thank yourself for getting it sorted out.
    I don't recommend you putting yourself on a gluten free diet.

    I have this too, I used to be bulimic and drink a lot of alcohol so I think I have parasites now. I have candida too. Going to have colonic hydrotherapy in a few weeks.
