Brief Answer: Need a few more test reports. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX ! Good evening. I am Dr Shareef answering your query. If I were your doctor, I would advise you for a routine test of the stool for any ova and cyst especially if you have got a habit of eating out. The treatment would depend on the report. Mucus while passing stool could as such be an association in the irritable bowel syndrome. I would consider hyoscyamineER less likely to be responsible for this which is usually prescribed for decreasing the intestinal motility. On the dietary front, I would advise you for a high roughage diet with enough of liquids.Also I would like to add a probiotic routinely for you. I hope this information would help you in discussing with your family physician/treating doctor in further management of your problem. If you have got any further doubt, please do not hesitate to ask. Thanks for choosing health care magic for clearing doubts on your health problems. Wishing you an early recovery. Dr Shareef.

Hi, I had been diagnosed with ibs over two years ago, and my stomach would hurt usually four times a week and I went through many weight changes. I lost a lot of weight at first then gradually put it back on and then lost it again, but it was never on purpose. And no this past summer I began taking probiotics and they helped with bowel movements and pain but my stomach began getting very bloated. It would not go away at all and it became very bad after I ate or drank anything. I was late on my period for about four months. And the bloating hasn t gone away at all, I stopped taking the probiotic about a week after starting cause I though it had something to do with it but I am still bloated. I literally can t eat anything because of this bloating, I have lost a lot of weight but my stomach just keeps getting bigger. It has been about five months now and there has been no change. At first I thought It was since I was constipated that I was bloated but I began taking miralax and I have gone to the restroom everyday but there has been no change in my stomach at all, could you please tell me whats going on?

Hi, I'm a female 40 yrs old. Always had a problems with constipation. I never usually have the urge to go unless its my day off and I am able to sit with my coffee in the morning to give it time to work. Other than that, I have a movement about 2 times per week. Worried as I was, I went to the Dr. a few years ago in which I had a colonoscopy which turned out being IBS. I've cut out grains, most carbs, beans, not much dairy and still the same problem. I cant see to lose any weight, I eat VERY healthy and seems like I get bigger in the mid section. Recently I tried adding Kefir yogurt to my diet, eating a serving a day of fermented foods, and taking a 15 billion probiotics about 2 weeks ago. I am now going every morning but my stool is a softer, pencil thin, yellowish brown in color stool. Do you know why this could be? Should I be worried about the pencil thin shape?? I have no gas, bloating, pain..nothing. I actually feel great!! ?????Please help with advice

I have had discomfort in my lower left abdominal quadrant for some time. It is not really painful but more like discomfort. At most it reaches, maybe, a two on a pain scale . It sort of feels like a pressure. Probiotics were recommended. Since I drank a few Kefirs, things seem better. However, after the first Kefir I had a small amount of green tinged mucus bm (mostly mucus, very little bm)...I still think I feel a little better...but what does the mucus mean?
