I have to go to the bathroom like 4 to 5 times after I eat

Patient

Q: I have to go to the bathroom like 4 or 5 times after I eat it is just like water

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

It seems like you have symptoms seen in irritable bowel syndrome or an acute intestinal infection or gastroenteritis. Sometimes anxiety can also cause this. Drink plenty of water and have a bland diet. Avoid smoking and alcohol. Reduce coffee, tea and stress levels too. Consider consulting a physician to investigate and treat you accordingly.

Hope this helped.
Regards
