Increased Frequency Of Defecation But Hard And Solid Stools?
Hello, I have had 5 bowel movements all day, usually once in the morning. But every time I chap, at first it was runny but then what came out was a bit harder and even hard to get out but my stomach was still churned. And some time after the chapter, my stomach feels full especially after eating something. Why does that really matter? I am confused, if I take diarrhea medicine, my stool will get harder and harder to pass. But if I don’t drink GET, my prut is always twisted and I am dying for a chapter. what do i need?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
An increase in the frequency of defecating along with the consistency of solid stool does not always mean diarrhea. It could be that your condition occurs only due to increased motility of the digestive tract temporarily, for example due to the following reasons:
Consuming too much food or drink that irritates the gastrointestinal tract Consuming unhygienic processed food or drink Experiencing excessive anxiety Dyspepsia (increased stomach acid) Side effects of drugs Experiencing inflammation of the digestive tract, for example due to infection, colitis, poisoning, malabsorption, intolerance , etc. The abdominal pain that is churning and feeling full that you are experiencing may occur due to increased gas production in your digestive tract which could be related to one or more of the causes above.
How long, exactly, have you had complaints like this? Is it only today?
If so, you should not rush to take drugs (including anti-diarrhea drugs). Drink more and pay attention to your diet again. Here are the recommended dietary patterns that you need to apply:
Eat small but regular portions Reduce foods that are too spicy Reduce foods that produce a lot of gas in the digestive tract, for example mustard greens, cabbage, tubers, soda Eat more vegetables, fruit Increase also eat foods that are easy to digest, for example porridge, food with soup probiotics and prebiotics to help nourish the digestive tract. Drink enough water for 10 to 12 glasses per day. In addition, you also need to balance the diet above by actively moving and exercising so that the digestive system works more stable.
However, if within 1 to 3 days your complaints do not get better, or you have loose stools more than 3 times a day, severe abdominal pain, vomiting, bloody or mucus stools, fever, and other complaints, you should get checked out immediately. You go to a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine so you can get further treatment.
I hope this helps.
