  5. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Sometimes I feel that I can go to the bathroom, and I think my stool will just come out without me having to push so much. However, sometimes my stool comes out, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes, when my stool does come out, it may come out mushy; like apple sauce or sand. Is this still...
