Question Brown mucus after bowel movement - Concerned!

Hi everyone,

I'm a little bit worried at the moment because I have been experiencing this for a few months, and it just hasnt seemed to get any better.
I have had constipation for about a year now, and my tummy makes terrible (really loud and also painful) noises ALOT of the time. About 8 months ago I started noticing everytime i wiped with a tissue (after a bowel movement) there was brown mucus (stretchy stuff). I told my doctor and he didnt seem all that worried (but I felt he didnt really take me seriously)
should I be worried?
Also, my stools NEVER float. they are always very small and dark. Is that normal?
Any help would be appreciated. thanks

EDIT: I'm 22 if that helps...
