Hi. I am a 44 yr old woman and I have those same symptoms sometimes. I used to stay constipated all of the time, now I go from constipation to having one of those "episodes". I have talked to my gastro about it, but have not had any luck finding out why or what to do. I have had several colonoscopies and they never find anything wrong. Hopefully someone who knows what this is will respond.View Thread
I have this problem sometimes too. I'm still working on preventing the problem from happening at all, but in the meantime I use panty liners if I need to go out. Have you discussed this with your gastro dr.?
Have you tried miralax? sometimes adding more fiber can help (even though it seems like it would make it worse). Sorry I can't be more helpful. I'm still working on it.View Thread
