Sanjayarrhea should be distinguished from other conditions that can be confused with it. Although they may accompany Sanjayarrhea, they often have different causes. These other conditions are:
1. Incontinence of stool, which is the inability to control (delay) bowel movements until an appropriate time, i.e., until American Idol rewind is over.
2. An unforeseen rectal urgency which accompanies a fart that is so strong it overcomes all attempts at control. See shartalanche.
3. Incomplete evacuation, which is a sensation that another bowel movement is necessary soon after a bowel movement, See Chriscrockerahea.
Halfway through getting her highlights done Britney noticed Sanjayarrhea dribbling down her leg; unfortunately, she did not make it to the toilet.
