Soft stools that come out in 1 piece or a few smaller pieces, look like number 4 on stool chart, sometimes fecal urgency, no blood, no pain, several years now, go avg 3 times a day. 22 yr old male?

Not a big problem: Most people have been on antibiotics within tue past 2 or 3 years and don't have the optimal balance of "friendly" bacteria in their intestines. Sometimes this can cause mild to moderate GI distress, and sometimes more significant symptoms. A good probiotic, kambucha, or other foods that restore balance in friendly bacteria is very important. ...Read more

I had a recent urgency to open my bowels and I passed a lot of clay coloured stool. It was formed and wasn't hard to pass. ?

No age or context...: ...so IBS is on the list but is a diagnosis of exclusion. The key to your answer: what are your symptoms, duration of distress, age/comorbid conditions, medications, and what did you eat last night? If stool urgency is a recurrent issue, what recent evaluation have you undergone? Especially if you are up in age, further evaluation is warranted to identify & correct the many possible causes. ...Read more

Been passing small strings of mucus for 4 days. No stool was present for 3 days. Lots of urgency but just mucus. Diet is clean & LUQ pain. Why?

Been passing small strings of mucus for 4 days. No stool was present for 3 days. Lots of urgency but just mucus. Diet is clean & LUQ pain. Why?

If no better soon>Dr: Assuming you haven't had any previous chronic bowl problems it's possible you may have a mild viral gastroenteritis. But that might not explain your LUQ pain. If the problem doesn't resolve over the next few days (I hope it does), or if the pain is significant, you need to be seen by a physician for proper diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Lower ab pain-urgency to pass stool and feeling relieve, few min after again and again, having loose stool in the last one and finally symptoms stops.

Irritable bowel: is one thing that can explain some of your symptoms, especially if it has been going on for quite some time. Treatment is focusing on treating the main symptom, in this case loose stool or diarrhea. If started happening recently, have think about infection, especially if there is blood and/or mucus in the stool. See your doc for further evaluation and treatment, which may consist of antibiotics ...Read more

What is normal transit time from food to stool? Sometimes mine is as little as 10 hours. Fatty stool mucus urgency. Normal flex sig,and fc elastase

Check gallbladder: there are many causes for fatty stools which usually will come out loose. 10 hrs is actually not bad, some people have to go right after each meal. But, RUQ pain can indicate GB problem, which in turn can cause poor digestion of fat. So, avoid fatty foods, oily foods and ask a doctor to get a test for GB function. (It's a start). ...Read more

Possible infection: I don't know your age, but your symptoms suggest urinary tract infection, which may or may not be due to a prostate condition. It is important to get this evaluated and treated as soon as possible to prevent long-term damage to your bladder, prostate and kidneys, or worse. ...Read more

62 yo female w/ stge 4 colon ca has frequent urgency to release stool or pee.  She had colon surgery a yr ago.  Why the freq bathroom trips?

Depends: What portion of the colon was removed at surgery? Removing the lower colon & rectum can result in more frequent bowel movements. I do not know if there are medications that she is taking that may affect her, or history of radiation treatments. Review with her doctor. Colonoscopy may be indicated. ...Read more

Many possibilities: There is no clear cause of IBS.

Had urine culture and e.Coli was found. Having UTI and had different meds to treat it. Pain in pelvic, testis after peeing&passing stool. Urine urgency?

Prostatitis?: Your meds show ciproflox and levoflox. Need only one of the two, they are similar. Your symptoms suggest prostatitis rather than simple uti. It needs longer duration of therapy & has slower resolution of symptoms. If you were treated with more than a week and no better, let your doc know to reevaluate the plan of treatment including possible re culture and antibiotic adjustment. ...Read more

Crp result 10.2 blood mucus in stool . Loose frequent stools up to 10 times a day. I have definite bowel cancer? Urgency to go. Pains in stomach bad.

Await test results: Obviously, you are seeing a doctor about this. While your described symptoms MAY be due to cancer, that's not the first diagnosis that leaps to my mind. Inflammatory bowel disease is. But no online doc can substitute for one who actually examines you. Be prayerful and patient. You'll know soon. Good luck. ...Read more

Can Overactive Bladder cause: constant feeling of urgency doesnt go away? occasional split stream urination?

Can Overactive Bladder cause: constant feeling of urgency doesnt go away? occasional split stream urination?

Yes - see comments: Urgency suggests overactive bladder(OAB). However split stream suggest bladder outlet obstruction(BOO). Causes of BOO include BPH, urethral stricture, primary bladder neck obstruction, bladder neck contracture. It is common for BOO to cause OAB. BPH is present in only 8% of 30-40 year old men, so it's quite possible you don't have BOO, or have one of the other causes see http://bit.ly/1wHjHAy ...Read more

I've had intermittent pain in my bladder & right side with occasional urgency to urinate lasting days. Now pain in bladder area when I change position?

Sounds like UTI, but: The symptoms suggest urinary tract infection (UTI), but UTI is rare in men except for those who have other problems, such as enlarged prostate. So other possibilities, such as prostatitis, prostate cancer, pelvic mass, bladder cancer, etc., have to be considered. This problem is unlikely to just go away. See either a primary care physician or urologist soon. ...Read more

I have question with my bladder. I have frequency, urgency, and occasional incontinence. No uti, no bladder or pelvic floor prolapse. ?

Diet?: I agree with dr. Klauber. Additionally for women, aging, diet and hormones have an effect of urgency on the bladder. The more acidic foods such as carbonated drinks and citrus fruits, tomatoes, and, caffeine, can cause urgency symptoms with occasional urge incontinence. Low vaginal estrogen makes women more sensitive to the urgency symptoms. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Severe urinary urgency and frequency, lasting only a few hours and recurring every few weeks. Occasional incontinence and hematuria. Urine tests/culture are normal, no pain/burning. What could it be?

Need to see urolo: Gist. Your symptoms are in many ways consistent with overactive bladder syndrome. It's possible that you always have microscopic hematuria. At any rate, you do need a full urological evaluation to determine the exact diagnosis. www.nafc.org/bladder-bowel-health/types-of-incontinence/...
