I've noticed that every morning I get diariah(sorry I can't spell). Then by the mid morning I become constipated. Then After I eat lunch or dinner I get more diariah. It's getting really annoying. I am not sure but I think it's irratible bowel :x

Maybe you could get yourself tested for Celiac Disease (or gluten sensitivity). It is a condition that is commonly misdiagnosed as IBS because of its classic symptoms of diarrhea and constipation.

Ditto about testing for gluten intolerance, whether classic celiac disease or the till recently not well recognised non-celiac type of gluten sensitivity, but which is increasingly common.

Around 1% of the population have some form of celiac disease, ( various symptoms including peripheral neuropathy and skin disorders, with or without enteropathy/GI issues ), and the Maryland Institute recently put the number of people suffering from the more diffuse form of gluten intolerance at 7% of the population, so they are no longer rare at all.

And another very common cause of gastrointestinal problems is fructose malabsorption ( and the related FODMAP intolerance, to fructans in wheat, onions, etc, and to fructose in honey, apples, pears, aswell as various complex sugars ), which affects up to 40% of the population to some extent, and can be diagnosed with a hydrogen breath test.

Both of these disorders can have very very serious long-term effects on both physical and mental health, so the sooner they are diagnosed the better.
