When I was in my 40's it was like that for me too. You didn't specify your age. I think hormones have a lot to do with it because when I entered my 50's a lot of the diarrhea stopped and now my IBS isn't as bad. I have some flare-ups but they aren't as bad and I also drink 5oz of red wine in the evening no later than 7pm and it seems to help keep me normal and it even helps my night wakes to have to go urinate also.View Thread
