Hi..there r many reasons for persistent loose stools...u may have a food allergy or celiacs, IBS or it can be stress related.There r many conditions that can affect ur bowel or bladder or both.

U sound like u have a GI dr since u had a colonoscopy so do speak with him in regards to this situation.

make sure u r re hydrating....as having loose stools like this deplete ur electrolytes.Drink Gator aid type drinks and plenty of water as well.

I hope u get to the root of the problem soon

Hi there,

Do not accept a diagnoses of IBS before you have had some tests to eliminate other causes.  You definitely need a colonoscopy as you may have Crohn's disease.

As Selma said, you need to rehydrate yourself and you can get OTC sachets with meds in to replace the electrolytes that you lose while having constant diarrhee.

Please keep us updated and I hope you find a diagnoses and treatment soon.
