“Without much warning, I need to dash to the bathroom.” “The stool bursts out explosively.” “I get cramps prior to each bowel movement.”
This or a similar experience is what people report with regard to their chronic diarrhoea complaints.
In the case of chronic diarrhoea a bowel movement usually happens many times a day. It is always liquid along with some solid pieces of stool. Acute diarrhoea can be caused by food poisoning, viruses, bacteria or fungus and it can be accompanied by fever.
A definite cause can often not be made in the case of chronic diarrhoea and a high body temperature is absent. Nevertheless, the frequent and urgent running to the toilet constrains the patients in their daily lives and weakens them in the long term.
