You seem to be suffering from an extreme case of Irritable Bowel Syndrome or IBS. You have not mentioned anything about visiting a doctor, have you seen one yet? Some times this could be indicating the presence of some other infection or disease. You need to get a through medical check up done to rule out the possibilities of some other infection. This will also help you to get a better diagnosis and treatment of your problem. Irritable Bowel Syndrome or IBS occurs when your digestive system does not function properly. When the food moves too quickly or too slowly through your intestines it leads to Irritable Bowel Syndrome or IBS. This could lead to loose motions or constipation. Consuming things like rye, wheat, barley, milk products, chocolate, certain strong medicines, eating large meals or excessive alcohol and consuming drinks that have caffeine like tea, coffee or colas may cause IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
