Patient : I have been healthy eating since the summer and have lost just over 4 stone in this time. Since the start of January my bowel movements have been very irregular (sometimes every 3days) when before they were daily. When I pump it STINKS and just before I do go to the toilet I get pains in my tummy like I am going to have diarrhea. The stools are slightly more moist that usual but they are otherwise normal. I am not constipated as I just genuinely feel I do not need to go until I get the pains. I am eating a balanced diet with oats, seeds and brown bread. I have never had this problem before. Please help?
