I have had NArrow Stools for about 4-5 weeks now. It started first as my stomach became very upset with Diarehha for approximately 3 days. After that passed I have loose mucussy stools for about another week and a half. The stools were thin and broken ranging in size, but never bigger in diameter then the size of a quarter. I think this might have been created by stress that was brought on by work and also going about 4 weeks all of the sudden without taking my Tricor. I am always gassy, but other then that the past 3 weeks havent had any stomach cramps and my stool has been formed, it is just it still remains narrow around the size of a quarter.Even when my stool is firm and not soft it is still that size. How long can I have these narrower stools before I should get really concerned.I am 37, through my early to mid 20's I thought I had IBS as I had issues with crampy upset stomach after eating. Took some medication and it really worked. Stopped taking the medication and I had been pretty good fro a long time with just occassional, short bouts of upset stomach (Fried foods, Dairy), but mostly dealing with constipation, due to diet most likely and also was told my Cholesterol medication could effect it the constipation also.So I recall mostly having large harder stools, so the fact that they havent been any bigger then a quarter maybe a touch bigger or smaller at times for the last 4-5 weeks has got my attention. I dont think its ever been as thin as a pencil when formed although there might have been a few pieces that thin during a 2-3 of the very loose and broken bowel movements I had during the last 4-5 weeks. When it is formed though it is as I said a quarter or so in diameter. I am now aware of it so of course I check every movement and can tell visibly that teh stools are narrower then the ones from 7,8,9 weeks ago. So what is considered narrow and how long a period of consistent narrow stools is a concern??I make a conscious effort to boost Fiber by eating Fiber one cereal and bars and other high fiber foods fro about the past 12-14 months.I have received care from a Colon Rectal Specialist for a fissure last year also. I also had an Endoscopy (STandard for taking acid reflux medicine for years) last July with no issues.Any insight is greatly appreciated.
