I have been experiencing abnormal bowel movements for over a year now. At first I had diahreah on a daily basis. Then I started having pencil thin stools for several months. And here lately I have been majorly constipated. I am 21 years of age. I eat plenty of raw veggies and fruits and I drink nothing but water and I even eat flax seed. I'm so frustrated. I don't know what's going on with me. I don't have medical insurance. Does anyone know what this could be? Thanks.
Pencil thin movements can be a sign that part of the bowels are narrowed, and your constipation could mean it is getting worse. I would recommend seeing a doctor, preferably a gastroenterologist. Do you have a free care clinic in your area? Seek some care before you are facing an emergency situation.
