Yes, I have experienced the same thing. It's pretty scary, isn't it?

I'm trying to figure this thing out day by day. I used to just think my body was just weird and that there was nothing I could do about it. Now, "it" has a name and I'm making it my job to figure out how to make things better for myself.

So far, I'm finding that taking Colace and Phazyme at each meal is helping. And I'm cutting down on sodas and caffeine. Trying to drink more water, but I really don't like water at all!

I just realized today that my doctor recently put me on a diuretic also . . . wonder if that is contributing to the problem, making it particularly bad now . . . h'mmmm . . . . gotta think some more on that one.
