Re: Pencil thin stools
According to your previous posts, you have been asking about pencil thin stools for a few months now. If you are so concerned about them, I would suggest going to the doctor and having some tests run to rule out anything serious and put your mind at ease. I occassionally have thinner stools than normal, and sometimes very normal stools. After talking to the doctor about this, I had various tests done and eliminated any "serious" causes. He thinks that I have IBS and that my colon sometimes "spasms" causing the thinner stools. Being stressed and thinking about my bowel movements often causes the spasms.
