It is so bad at times, that I can't leave the house. The farthest I have been able to travel is 20 minutes before I start searching frantically for a restroom, and pray that it is somewhat clean. I tried metamucil to bulk up the stools, but then I would start bloating to the 6 months pregnant size, so much trapped gas that would take DAYS to get rid of. No diarrhea, but instead I wanted to throw up all the time even though most of the time there was nothing in my stomach. Couldn't eat, couldn't drink. Stopped taking the metamucil and the bloating went away after a week, but then the diarrhea came right back. I only take pain meds when the pain doesn't go away with sitz baths and salves and starts escalating. It is causing problems with my work since my manager seems to think that the problems stopped when the treatments stopped.
