Hi, been suffering with ibs for 10 months now.
Almost always constipation but sometimes diarrhea.
so anyway now to the scary part.
every now and then after being constipated when I did eventually go I sometimes saw one or two long browny/white stringy things, I always forgot about them and decided in my head that they where just mucus.
so today I went after taking some movicol last night and when I looked at the stool they were covered in what I can only describe as worm like white strands that looked like string, about 7/8 inches long and white/yellowish.
there was about 15 of them.
I suffer with daily stomach pain.
PLEASE SOMEONE TELL ME WHAT THESE COULD BE, I DO NOT THINK THEY ARE ROPE WORMS.

I had this for a while.  Do you have itching around the anus?  Are you losing a lot of weight?  If so, it's worms.  If not, probably mucus.  Scared me half to death because sometimes it does look like worms/corn silk, but usually it's just my intestines being a bit funky for a bit.

Yeah i have lost quite a lot of weight, what type of worm though? I was aware threadworms are a lot smaller. A lot smaller.

Then it could be pinworms.  I'd check with your doctor, particularly since weight loss is a symptom of parasitic infection.  It's an easy fix, though, if it is, and nothing to be embarrassed about.
