abnormal feces

Hi, this is a strange thing to talk about, but here it goes.

Lately ive discovered that my feces are small balls rather than one mass. They come on it drop form, all of which are no wider than a couple cm's.

Is there a reason for this?

Re: abnormal feces

Usually it means you are not drinking enough water or fluid !!
You may also make sure you eat enough water soluble fiber that absorbs fluid and bulks up your stool. Your stool is suppose to be tubular shaped and about a quarter in diameter.

Take care---Harry

Re: abnormal feces

Hi, ditto to Harry. Also, are you taking any pain meds, iron in vitamins or supplements, recent back injury, drinking lots of tea?

What are your bm's like on a normal basis? Have you had problems in the past?

Hope things improve soon,
It's all a matter of perspective!

It is also one of the symptoms for diverticulosis.
