That's interesting, I too suffered for many years with absolutely awful explosive diarrhea, which has now turned into this not quite as awful but still bad mud stuff, which strangely enough despite its soft consistency often requires pushing and feels incompletely evacuated, making me feel as though I'm in some kind of transition stage between IBS-D and IBS-C. I wonder if this is a common course with IBS? I'll look into the flavonoid and D supplements.
What I called IBS-M(ud) was a phase I went through during my recovery from 10 years of all-out D. I used a flavonoid extract with anti-inflammatory values and eventually the inflammation that was causing that retreated to the one piece tubular soft bm, with incomplete evacuation stage. That was treatable with a good fiber powder. If there is anything in your past that might link to inflammation--use Google to see if their are links--then the flavonoids would probably be worth a trial.Mark
