Alright, I've been putting this off for a while, and I guess it's time I finally ask some people about it. I don't think I have to tell anyone here to please be serious. Although it's not a huge problem, I'd still really like some actual input.

For the past month or so, I've been getting what I can describe as frequent bouts of Diarrhea (the D-bomb.) It makes no sense. The first time it happend (unfortunately at work - let's just say I had to abandon my post and run to the bathroom fairly quickly,) I figured I must be getting the stomach flu. I was worried. Fortunately, it was gone in a matter of hours. From that point on, I've been getting it almost every day, and it usually lasts about the same amount of time. I can control it (if you know what I mean.) so it's not a huge problem, but it is very uncomfortable. I've done research online about foods to eat, foods not to eat, etc., and it has helped a little bit. At first, I figured it must be caffein. I do work at a coffee place (Starbucks) so I drink a lot of caffein. I stopped doing that, and it still happened. I started eating apples and bananas more often. Helped a little bit, but it still happens. I'm not an unhealthy person, either. I'm in good physical shape, and although I'm not the most healthy eater, I'm pretty aware of what I eat and I make sure I keep my weight down, etc. The strangest thing is that this past weekedn, I went camping and had absolutely no "incidents." I figured this was the chance to find out what I've been doing wrong and maybe replicate the kinds of foods I was eating on the trip versus what I normally eat, but alas...another incident...

If it helps, here's what I ate before the last "incident": Woke up, had some pancakes, a cup of coffe, and a small bowl of special K cereal (My mom buys the stuff...) Went to school, and about 3 hours later, had a turkey sandwich on wheat bread with mayo and mustard.

Any advise, suggestions, websites, etc? It will be greatly appreciated.

Could be that you have irritable bowel syndrome. Might want to check it out with a doctor. Stress can also do that to you. Are you under any stress?

I do get stressed pretty easily, and I forgot to mention that it frequently starts right before I have to go to work... It happens quiet often when I'm not under stress too, though.

Traveled anywhere lately? Parasite?

Perhaps it's a cope-out answer, but you should probably go to your doctor.
