Question: I have had a lot of bloating and pain when I touch my abdomen. It lasted three days. This morning I had a BM and it was encased in a sheath. It looked like a sausage with natural intestines. I’ve never had this before. Is it something I should worry about? By the way, the pain went away after it passed.

Brief Answer:
Sounds completely harmless

Detailed Answer:
Hi Skeltonjudy,

What you describe sounds completely harmless. Diets around the holidays may cause the symptoms you describe. It is difficult to ascribe the appearance of your stools to a certain condition, but it seems absolutely benign. If you do now feel OK. there is nothing to worry about.

Please let me know if you have further questions.
