  1. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I swear if I poop one more time, you're all going to hear me scream - even those of you far away. Surely not everyone in this world has to have a bowel movement EVERY DAMN TIME they go to the bathroom. Does everyone in the world have to wipe their butts so much it's almost always bleeding...
  2. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I have two bowel movements every day. One in the morning and another one around 4 pm. The first one is very often soft, not very well formed. Not a diarrhea, but soft pieces. Let's say type 5 and 5 to 6 on the Bristol chart. The second bowel movement is close to the type 4. Sometimes its ideal...

    Something is wrong with my anus. I thought maybe it was what I was eating or had to do with my weight. Doesn't matter if it's solid or diarrhea. When I poop I can't just wipe, I literally have to stick a finger in my anus and clear it out. It's ruining my life, I've dealt with this for 19...

    Hi, I usually have two bowel movements a day and usually one of them is with small amount of something I think it is mucus. I learned that small amount of mucus is nothing to worry about, but on some sites they say if it is visible by naked eye then something could be wrong. So, I'm not really...

    Hi everyone! I'm new here! So just to give you a bit of a back story, I've been having stomach issues for 10 months now. I've seen a few doctors and have had many tests done, all which have come back normal. The only test I have not had done yet is a colonoscopy, and that's only because I...
  8. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Hello! Since Christmas (I know right, what a great Christmas present...) I have been having an issue with having incomplete bowel movements. Before this issue happened, I was quite sick for 4 days and was throwing up A LOT! I always have a bowel movement after I come back from school (3:30 pm...
  9. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hi, just a quick question, hope someone can give an opinion. I know many people here suffer with severe IBS-D, but can you tell me if fairly typical for IBS bowel movements to start out normally (as in shape and consistency) but then get rather runny/mushy for the last portion of the stool...

    So back in March of this year, I took a trip to very underdeveloped part of Belize. While there I contracted what i assumed to be travelers diarrhea, however in retrospect I'm not so sure. One day I began to have very bad cramps and bloating, and the next night the symptoms worsened, I began to...

  14. Young Adult's Issues
    Hello there everybody! This is my first post and I have come onto this forum because I don't know where to turn. I feel perhaps people on here can give better advice than so called 'health professionals' who it appears don't fully understand. I am currently in the 'speculative' IBS pile. I've...

  16. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    The past two months I have been super interested in enemas. In the 2 years I've had constipation, I had never heard of an enema. I started of with Fleet Enemas, then realized they are not good for daily use. After that I went to water only enemas, this worked to an extent but didn't fully fix my...

    My stomach feels like it is tight. It feels like the insides get sucked in and there is pressure in my stomach, that stays; it gives me discomfort. It also feels like i need to poop, but i know nothing will come out. I know this may be constipation, but the only reason why I think my poop wont...
  18. Gas / Flatulence / Bloating
    Every morning, I feel the urge to have a bowel movement. This morning I felt the urge and thought my stool would just come out without me having to push so much. However, my stool did not come out; all I did was pass gas. I went back to sleep. Even with me passing gas seems like a struggle...

    In the morning when I used the bathroom, my stool was formed like a lipstick tube; not mushy. Then I ate some cooked carrots, peas and one broccoli. I went to use the bathroom again. This time my stool came out mushy; as in the form of apple sauce or sand. Although it came out in the formation...
