Well isn't that annoying!

Until he gets it figured out, he can use the pads that have adhesive, to stick to your underwear.
Always brand has some very thin ones.
And the thick unscented babywipes are handy.
You can put a couple into a zip sandwich bag, to take to work, to "freshen up."

hi, Has he talked to a doctor about this. Here's my take...

Obtaining stool cultures to rule out infection and a colonoscopy.

Let us know how he makes out.

Sorry if this is asking for too much detail....but is it clear, or dark in color?

I would get it sometimes and it'd be kinda clear and watery. Got it after drinking coffee. It was kind of a phase that went away, but it was during Lyme.

thanks for answering this! He hasn't told his Dr. yet but will be doing so on our next visit. We will

see. I read something about it could be caused by parasites? oh lovely. Hoosiers, I don't think it is

totally clear, he usually gets it when he's been working hard. Thanks for the tips Carol, I will

have to get him set up! I just really hope there is a solution to this new aweful problem. Thanks again guys.

abbyjo,

Definitely consider parasites. Parasites and worms can play a HUGE role in Lyme disease.

Check out

www.lymephotos.com

Burgdorfer found Adult Filarial Worms in the ticks he dissected. Type parasites and Lyme into search bar here.

I have, epecially from inflammation of the rectal area. The Lyme Disease seems to cause flare-ups of my G.I. tract, and that area is also included.

I'm wondering....though not sure....if it also could be dysautonomia.

Because the autonomic nervous system regulates things that your body should automatically control.

I have had problems with swallowing, (along with the more obvious heartrate and blood pressure off) and I think it's autonomic. I'm wondering if anal leakage could be included in that, since, kind of like swallowing, it should be a "no brainer" for your body to maintain.
