So, I've been dealing with this long enough, but it's starting to get out of hand. Made worse by me working in a public setting.
My bowel movements are not normal anymore. On average, I hit many 1-2 a day? To top that off, the stools aren't normal. The color is off, the size is off, and they all look like they were either digested a few times over, or chewed on post-digestion. And the contents within the stool are sometimes translucent, but I'm never 100% sure on what could be composing those objects. It's like I "can't" poop anymore.
And my gas is horrendous, at least out the back end. I can burp almost relentlessly if I want to, but that doesn't seem to alleviate anything. The gas' "quality" drops significantly if I manage to actually have a substantial bowel movement, as I've understandably cleared up a good chunk of stool kept within me.
Anyone have anything similar at one point and know what's up? I haven't had any real crazy diet changes or anything. If anything, I'm now eating healthier. And the small meals throughout the day are keeping me away from being hungry, so I can't diagnose this as worms as I'm never starving.View Thread
