Re: Please help. Any advice
You can relax. It's not uncommon with people with IBS symptoms. I noticed it many years ago. I was really worried about it but I was afraid to mention it. When I finally did, my doctor reassured me that everyone has mucus in their digestive system. It's there to lubricate and move things along. You might see little bits of white or long streaks. Sometimes you see it more than others. It's also normal to see little bits of fat or undigested food from time to time.
It wouldn't hurt to get tested for parasites and all that, especially if you've been traveling or have other symptoms such as diarrhea. If you see blood or a lot of pus, tell your doctor so s/he can rule out diverticulitis or other colon problems.
