I've been having a big problem with running and needing suddenly to use the bathroom RIGHT THIS SECOND. No matter what I eat or when I eat it, I get the uncontrollable urge every time and now I can't even run a mile without having to turn around and come home.
Well, someone suggested I try taking a probiotic. I tried one last night after supper. Today I have nothing left in my intestinal tract prior to lunch today.
That would normally seem like a bad thing, but on the other hand, perhaps I can run in peace now. I'm kind of undecided whether or not to keep taking the probiotic. For one thing, I don't know if, like laxatives, they create a dependency relationship with the intestines. I don't know how to determine if they will work for me or harm me.
I guess I'll try this like every other day or 3 times per week or something like that, for starters, and see what happens. It can't be worse than what I've already gone through.

    Morning bathroom issues have changed my routines too. Never thought about making probiotics a part of my food plan. I'd choose yogurt as a regular addition.
