Don't say I didn't warn you...Usually I have normal looking stools, my main IBS symptoms are bloating, gas, and discomfort. However, today I noticed something very odd - if I didn't know better, I'd swear I swallowed several multi-inch long pieces of twine. There was something, wrapped in and around the stool, that looked for all the world like white string. Never seen anything like it before. Seems too formed and cohesive to be mucus. Any thoughts on what it might be? Parasites? Even though I've never had D once in my life? Kind of freaking me out.
