Irregular Bowel Movements

Lately, I seem to have irregular bowel movements mainly caused psychologically.  Whenever I think about having a bowel movement in a matter of time, regularly half an hour, I need to go to expel waste.  It makes it quite hard to deal with during school.

I am also a runner.  Anytime I go for a run over 2 miles I get diarrhea and have horrible stomach cramps.  I've had to drop off the cross country team because of this problem.  Imodium works but I can't use it everyday when I need to get miles in for running.

Have you been tested for IBS or gallbladder problems?   Be sure to check with your physician don't let something like this go on too long.  Best of luck.
