Can anxiety and worrying cause chronic abdominal pain, diarrhea, very smelly poo and lots of undigested food inside the poo?
Start it going?: Anxiety can play a big role in getting this sort of thing kicked off. It leads to a flood of chemicals that hit all your organs, esp the weaker ones. Breathing, circulation, gut symptoms are common. The chemicals are the cause, but anxiety sparks them off. See a Dr for the gut. Ask for a CBT referral to learn Anx Mgmt. You may get a short round of Anx Meds. ...Read more

It shouldn't: In theory, if you have a huge amount of mucus, that can pass through into your stool and cause diarrhea, but usually this is only seen in infants and children.

Nondiagnostic: These symptoms are nondiagnostic without a thorough history and physical examination by a physician.

I doubt that cancer is the problem,however. Further studies seem warranted. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a severely redundant colon that is also permantly distended by gas, why can stool slowly get through but the gas does not, it goes backwards?
Different processes: Passage of gas is more mechanical process than passage of stool that requires active peristalsis in your colon to pass BM.

Use OTC meds for gas and diet modification (avoid beans, cauliflower) in the meantime. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Wow...lots of issues: I don't think we can really put all these things together into a common condition.

Biggest cause of concentration and memory issues at your age is stress. Would check thyroid as under active gland could contribute to all. Work with your doctor. Good wishes:) ...Read more

I think i overdose on fiber supplement. i'm experiencing flatulence, bloating and mucoid stools. what should i do and how long will it last.
I changed my diet. Eating small meals every 3 hrs comprising complex carbs and protein. Since then suffering frm excess flatulence and stool leakage.?
Bowel flora : An inadequately-addressed problem of bowel function involves imbalance of bacterial population. Dietary changes and/or antibiotics can bring this on, and correction involves encouraging the lactobacillus and acidophilus organisms to proliferate, suppressing the methane-producing bacteria like e. Coli, proteus, pseudomonas, etc. Try a probiotic twice daily like culturelle, and yogurt twice daily. ...Read more

Probably not: If your symptoms were present before accutane - it's probably not the medicine. I would encourage you to see MD to rule out Chron's disease vs ulcerative colitis.
