Q: About once a week, usually on my first night of my weekend shift at work, i find my self struck by a horrible case of diarrhea. i have changed my diets, cut back on caffiene drinks and such, but havent noticed a change. there seems to be no noticible connection between meals/liquids consumed prior to onset. it gets so bad that just walking a short distance is almost always garaunteed to send me to the bathroom. each bm happens more frequently with less waste expelled and leaves me with horrible cramping. this will usually last about 8 hour with about two to three trips the the bathroom each hour for the last two to three hours. i am at a loss.
