Hello @fde11,

I can understand your concern about diarrhea with undigested food. How long have you had this problem? In looking on the internet there appear to be many different reasons for this to happen including IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). Have you had a history of IBS or other digestive problems?

Have you talked with a doctor about this problem? If not, please do so.

@fde11 Since you do have a history of digestive disorders, I would certainly recommend contacting your doctor, either by phone or through the patient portal. It is important for your medical provider to know about these symptoms.

Will you contact your doctor's office and inform them about these symptoms?

Hello @fde11,

I'm so glad that you contacted your doctor! Now you need to deal with your worry, don't you? I know that this is easier said than done. When we let worry take over our mind it is very hard to think clearly. What activities could you do to take your mind off of your health issues? Could you take a short walk a couple of times a day? What about reading or listening to music? Do you have a friend you could call and talk to (not necessarily about your health issues but just to check in and say hello)?

Connect has discussion groups on Depression/Anxiety. Here is the link to one of those discussions, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/importance-of-focusing-on-positive-with-depression-anxiety/.

Have you had worry/anxiety problems before this health issue?
