Hard 2 say from here: Key to your answer: stools often variable, duration of distress (if any), recent evaluation, have bleeding/fever, what's your medical history & medications (any new ones?) The bowel frequency you describe is normal, but the sense of incomplete evacuation is not & if persistent deserves evaluation.
