White Flakes in stool

Hi, so, I've noticed some small white flakes in my stool. They are flat and kinda look like miniature pumpkin seeds. The coloring hasnt changed at all either (light brown, cardboard color...), no blood or ribbon like stools but a little constipated lately.

In addition to that, I have had abdominal pains under both left and right rib cages (in addition to lower), flank pains, what feels like kidney pains (ive had kindey stones before), which prompted me to goto the doctor and he ran a blood panel and blood sugar panel (which came back as OK - I originally thought it was my liver due to alcohol abuse of over 7 years <I'm recovering now). Doctor didnt give me a diagnosis.

I am a bit of a hypochondriach and am an extremely anxious person - worried all the time...

I dont want to keep going back to the doctor... but think it may be gall stones or as Dr. G**GLE suggests at times (at worst) problems with my colon.

Any help and/or input would be appreciated.

Re: White Flakes in stool

you'd know if it were gall stones, Gall bladder pain is excruciating. It's worse than childbirth, and I'm not joking. If you had gall stones, every time you ate something with a high fat content you would be doubled over in serious unrelenting pain.

So you can cross that off your list of "whatisits".
