odd health issue
I am a 21 year old college student. I don't know for sure if I have a medical issue but I do have a problem I want to find out about. The first thing is that I eat an unusually large amount. This is not some emotional thing, I eat because I am hungry. It is enough that all my friend notice it. The main, and somewhat related thing, is that for some reason I seem to have unusually large bowel movements. Sometimes it is even enough to plug up a toilet. They are typically 20-25 inches long and 1.5 to 2 inches in diameter. It is very hard to find information about this but this seems to be a lot bigger than average. My B/Ms are not hard like constipation at all. I go once every 2 to 3 days. I did have a couple of periods of constipation when I was 5 or 6 years old but I don't feel like that is related to this. The first time I noticed this problem was when I was 12. I would like to know what the normal size is and if there could be any medical problem here and also if anything can be done. I did talk to our doctor about this in high school but he didn't think there was a problem. This week end I was on a long road trip and I plugged up the toilet at a gas station. There were people in line and it was very embarrassing. This sort of thing makes me wonder if there is a medical issue or not.
