I am a 73 year old, active, healthy woman. I do take medications for high blood pressure and high chlorestol and they are under control. I recently moved back to the United States from Mexico where I lived for 7 years. Upon moving back, I was able to buy my favorite candy, Black Licorice. When ever I have had this in the past, I had a little diarrhea and then it passed. But since arriving in the USA in April, and eating a few packages of the licorice, I have developed a daily, continual diarrhea. I stopped eating the licorice weeks ago and still have it. I have no other symptoms. It is confusing to find out what causes this because I don’t have any other symptoms, such as cramping, etc. Does anyone have any idea what it going on and what kind of doctor I should be seeing, or if I should just avoid some things in my diet?
