Too many visits to the loo after a meal
I have a problem of going to the loo to answer to nature's call everytime after a meal. After every meal I immediately have a need to go to the loo to relieve myself, is this normal or is my system acting weird. I have a feeling there is something wrong. please help me.

HI there

When you eat, there is a stimulus which sometimes makes you want to go to the loo. In some people, it is more strongly developed than others. I wouldn't worry, unless your stool is very loose, or if you have to go very often.
If not, you can regard it as normal.
Hope this helps.
