Flora off balance: Could be that your gut bacterial flora is off balance. Try taking acidophilus supplements for a few weeks to see if this restores it. If not better, see MD for some bloodwork. If the stools are hard to flush down, then they are rich in fat which can mean the pancreatic, bile system is off.
