Hello, I used to have diarrhea just in the mornings and now I have it all throughout the day. Believe it or not, water makes it worse. In fact, the only way to control it is to drink very little water, which I realize is not healthy.
My blood tests are normal. A colonoscopy has been scheduled but the doctor admits he does not expect to find anything abnormal.
First line treatments have done nothing-- calcium, probiotics, immodium, pepto bismol, hyoscamine, fiber, etc.
Any ideas what this could be?

Hi vanzant: Sorry to read about all of the uncomfortable problems you've had recently with diarrhea. You mentioned in your post that had tried a number of things, including a probiotic. Before you give up on probiotics, let me suggest that you try one that contains multiple strains of bacteria. Studies have shown how probiotics help to boost the balance of beneficial bacteria that may curtail or prevent diarrhea. http://www.endomune.com/blog/2013/06/10-reasons-everyone-should-take-a-probiotic/

Please keep me posted on your health, or if you have any other questions about probiotics.
