TTYD, Stool studies.: You should relay your symptoms to a doctor / gastroenterologist by visit or via HealthTap Prime. The urgency & stool consistency sounds like colitis (inflammation of the colon). Have you been on antibiotics recently (past 6 months)? Stool tests like checking for WBC (lactoferrin) & bacteria can help diagnose the condition, but there's not enough room here to discuss all the possibilities.Good luck
