Reply to Dr Amit Munjal's Post: this has been happening for weeks. It mostly happens in the morning. Upset bowels no. however fecies are broken up and not in one piece. Kind of like diarrea but no urgentness. I don't have medical insurance so I can't have it checked.
Expert:  Dr Amit Munjal replied 7 years ago.
Hi.
As such stomach gurgling and broken up stools , mild diarrhoea are classical symptom of IBS only .
As such you may try some fibre supplement like Metamucil .
It will help in releiving the symptom and help to pass well formed stools .

Drink plenty of water .

Even with these measures the symptoms persists you will need to be seen for a clinical examination for further evaluation .
