Dr. David Drewitz answered:

White stringy mucus in stool have gallstones also have fibromyalgia?

No association...

Feces
There is no association between white stringy mucous in the stools and gallstones or fibromyalgia. The lining of the rectum and colon contains goblet cells that secret mucous providing lubrication to the digestive tract. The presence of mucous in the stool is not pathologic, rather associated with some conditions like IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).

7 weeks pregnant & with normal bowel movements (1/day), sometimes with cramping. Noticed white stringy mucus in stool for past 7 days.Normal or worms?

Hmmm

Feces
Unlikely worms unless you live in a tropical area where worm infection is high. Most likely this is temporary. A stool study may be helpful if persists.

Unusually enough....I've seen quite a bit of this in my HIV practice in the males predominantly. It turns out in my practice the overwhelming cause is rectal gonorrhea. It is not as obvious to culture out as one would think. Blood sometimes follows. Pain may or my not be present.

Does hemrroids cause blood and mucus in stool?

Blood yes

Blood
Hemorrhoids can bleed - as many internal hemorrhoids to. Internal hemorrhoids are inside and only sometimes come outside. These usually don't hurt but can bleed. Most people with painful hemorrhoids are external hemorrhoids. If you are having mucus, however, there could be something more going on and a rectal exam and possible colonoscopy are critical to further evaluate for other diseases

Diarrhea
Diarrhea can occur from inflammation of the bowel due to a number of irritants. Causes can include virus, bacteria and even toxins produced by microorganisms. Since the bowel is lined with a mucous membrane irritation/inflammation can lead to increased mucous that will show up with diarrhea. About half of thoes with irritable bowel syndrome have mucous with diarrhea.
