Hello, Lately my stool has been small tiny pieces that sink

Customer Question

Hello,

Lately my stool has been small tiny pieces that sink to the bottom of the toliet. Often when I go to wipe it is very clean. What could this be?

Hi,
Are you constipated?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
No it comes out easy.
Expert:  RK replied 3 years ago.
It depends on diet you take.
Stool floats when there is excess fat or increased gas.
If these two are less stool may sink.
Sinking stool does not indicate any serious disease if your bowel movements are regular.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I have had inconsistent stool for over a month now. Most of the time it is small pieces. Very rarely have I had snake like stool. I had a CBC test done by my doctor because he said my intestines were spazing. The CBC was normal. I don't see any blood in my toliet.
Expert:  RK replied 3 years ago.
Take high fiber diet and fiber supplements like metamucil. This will help you pass well formed stool.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
i been eating rice cakes for the past day hoping it would work.
Expert:  RK replied 3 years ago.
Include more vegetables and fruits.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
i also have had sharp back pain in my upper back for two months could they be related. My doctor said its muscle, but i think it could be spinal. I can touch my spine though the whole way down.
Expert:  RK replied 3 years ago.
No it is not related to it.
the pain you have could be most be most probably musculoskeletal.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
if i had a disc problem or even a small tumor would i have problems like walking
Expert:  RK replied 3 years ago.
Yes , if you have disc problem or small tumor you may have problem in walking.
I think I have already answered your original question regarding sinking stool.
