    After being sick for about 5 months, I have recently figured out the problem - I'm apparently lactose intolerant. No dairy products whatsoever.

    Anyone else suffer the same trouble? If so, what do you do? Is there meds you can take daily/before you eat dairy? Or have you had to completely reconfigure your diet?

    Over the summer, I was really bad - lost about 15 pounds, lowering my weight to about 140 lbs. And I'm 6'1". I was literally shitting 10 times a day. Blech. A series of MRIs, colonoscopys (camera up the butt) and Upper GIs (camera down the throat) all revealed nothing.

    But when I don't eat dairy for a week, I'm much better. I'm still not sure, considering it's only been 6 days that I haven't eaten dairy ... but no more mass poopies!

    Not that you asked for that info; just thought I'd share.

    poop man, you may have IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). a friend of mine had the same type of symptoms... so lactose intolerance may be only a part of the problem... a key part, but there may be more... i don't know that much about it, but just a heads up...

    Yeah. I was diagnosed with IBS about 5 years ago, but my symptoms have progressively gotten worse since then ... with a huge increase as of late.

    I take 23 pills a day in an attempt to control the IBS and resulting inflammation on my large intestine ... so lots has been done to try and combat it.

    Thanks for the heads up, though. I appreciate it.

    just a suggestion but I would consider a dairy less diet or at least a reduction of how much you eat. dairy is one of the most difficult things to give up I know but health wise you'll be a lot better off. for milk replacement try rice milk or soy milk. yes I know it doesn't sound too appetizing but give it a chance, and give enough time for your palette to adjust to the difference. remember its not dairy its an alternative so it will taste different. cheese shouldn't be that much of a problem since the majority of it is often oil and water. you don't have to become vegan but take a look at some vegan cookbooks and just switch some of your normal foods that you eat.

    if you think you're lactose intolerant cut the dairy out all together, especially the cheese - you'll adjust. Eat more fiber - veggies, whole grains, oatmeal, etc. Drink lukewarm water, and drink a glass of warm water with lemon in it when you get up - I just do that, and it works for me. DRINK LOTS OF WATER - a gallon or more a day.
    Don't eat meat (well, that one's just healthier, but isn't necessarily gonna change the runs or anything).
