bloating can be a sign of irritable bowel syndrome, poor diet, drinking soda, intolerance to gluten, wheat protein, milk intolerance

sensitive stomach can be from excessive stomach acid, poor diet, soda, gluten or milk intolerance

I have had loose bowel movements/diarrhea for as long as I can remember, 2 to 3 times daily.
I drink alcohol daily to help w joint pain. I’m awaken every morning to use the stool and deal w anxiety before going to work as I do not like to use public restrooms to poop. Is it possible that this is not IBS-D?
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

drinking alcohol daily will cause loose bowel movements and diarrhea.

you need to talk to your doctor about other medications or medical marijuana to help you with your joint pains

and not this alcohol which can cause other bad effects on your body.

severe anxiety symptoms can cause you to not want to poo in public.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
