Narrow stools: The odor comes from ingesting sulfur containing foods including meats, sea food, beans,peas. Narrow stools aren't necessarily worrisome. Difficulty passing stool can be helped by inserting a glycerin rectal suppository prior to the BM. Continue drinking adequate fluids,take fiber like Metamucil daily and exercise regularly for more regular BM's.
