Loose stools

Posted by messygirl @messygirl, Jun 29, 2019

So i have been getting loose stools since 3 years now and it all started when i travelled to and fro and eating food from the outside. I consulted doctor and took medications but it still continued. I see that the consistency and frequency has quite reduced now but i still get loose stools twice per day. Sometimes i also feel mild lower abdominal pain and rectal pain ( more like a discomfort) while taking poop. I get no stomach pains or so nor do i loose weight. I have been stressed too for quite long and this is making me feel more stressed. Can someone give the right cause please? Much appreciated

I travelled to an asian country and i know they are not the most hygienic. I started having diarrhea after i ate something from a restaurant as far as i remember and then i consulted the doctor and took meds. I got fine after medication but i started having loose stools again after 3 or 4 days. I dont remember exactly all of it as it was way back but i think it all started because of water or the food. My bowels were so normal before and i never thought i would suffer from something like this. I feel i get depressed at times and i having been very stressed since after i travelled due to some personal issues and also am scared to get myself tested as something could go wrong.But i see that my loose stools have subsided gradually and i have 2 or sometimes 3 stools per day but the urgency makes it annoying.People say i might have some parasitic infections as it is a developing country.But do they even last that long like for 2 to 3 years?

@messygirl I would like to reccomend you get checked for H -Pylori .. I caught that traveling somewhere in the world. God knows which I went to several places, China, Costa Rica, El Salvadore to mention a few.
I had severe acid reflux with it, and bouts of diarrhea along with stomach issues.
Add rice and bananas to your diet to help with your diarrhea..
Sometimes you need a double dose of medication to get rid of this bug. Its miserable..

Wishing you the best

Yes i thought of several stomach infections but then i saw i no longer had bouts of diarrhea and now i just get stools 2 times a day but the consistency is still loose and that's what bothers me but it seemed like it iss way better now than it used to be. I felt like it might be an after effect of any infection but not sure about it. Thank you for the advice
