For the past few months, I've been experiencing "rage" events. They usually happen a few times a month, last about an hour and include crying and trying not to scream or throw/hit/punch inanimate objects.
I think there's a blood sugar component, because it sometimes happens after consuming excess sugar/carbs. Like last night I ate a sweet potato with dinner AND a big bowl of blueberries and coconut milk after. Right before bedtime I started getting furious for no reason, and this morning I had an extreme rage episode...
...and afterward I had a HUGE poop and now I feel fine again. (Bristol type 3/4 healthy poop).
It seems like maybe this is a detox issue for me. Anybody else have a poop/rage connection?

its your liver....what is your regular diet like? if i were you i would cut out all vegetable based fats for a while as well as caffiene if you drink it. see if you cant start eating more animal fats from fatty cuts or fatty fish, egg yolks, liver and seaweeds. i would also recommend apple cider vinegar with meals, cut down on your carbs too, they will feed any bad bacteria in your gut and your gut and liver have a huge connection.
you might want to take some herbal remedies, milk thistle seed is great for the liver, as well as dandelion root or oregon grape root in a tea form.

I had major rage issues one year over Christmas break (thought I was hitting menopause) until a friend explained candida to me.As it turned out, I had been eating massive amounts of sugar over the holidays and was feeding my candida infection. I used apple cider vinegar to get a strangle hold on the candida and then started cutting white sugars out of my diet. The apple cider vinegar yielded results in the area of focus and clarity almost immediately. Then after the die off phase (which took me about two weeks it was so bad), things started to improve dramatically and I became my normal calm self again. Over the last year, I have eliminated sugar from my diet and it's AWESOME!! No more mood swings/rage issues. I'm a new (technically, the old) person!

Any thyroid issues? Screaming rages drain the thyroid, maybe an imbalance there? Congrats on the good poop, not much news of those here.

It could be involving your Vagus Nerve. I used to take care of a guy who's BMs could sometimes trigger his seizures due to Vagus stim.
