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.
