Re: Weird bowel issue!!

Hi Robbo,

I have had this for over 15 years on and off. It is when the stool is very dry and also sometimes when you eat very 'heaty' foods like vinegar, tomatoes, pineapple etc. Provided it is just the scarring when passing the stool, it doesn't necessarily lead to anything beyond that. However, it doesn't stop by itself either unless you introduce a diet change. Drinking ample amounts of water helps.

Also, you might find it REALLY helpful to eat pitted prunes. They make the stool passing a whole lot easier.

Other than that, eating foods that are high in fiber and taking some fruits to your diet may help you out :-)
