In brief: I think

Your condition is abnormal.
You should be seen by a GI specialist to exclude conditions such as ulcerative colitis or crohn's disease. I don't think it is related to stress.

In brief: Probably IBS

Ibs is characterzied by pain/cramping, altered bowel habits in the absence of specific organic disease.
Other symptoms common to ibs include bloating, gassiness, frequent/urge to have bm, early satiety, dyspepsia symptoms etc... Often = nuisances, but can be debilitating at times. Symptoms often worsen with stress. Try some probiotics/align. If not better or u r concerned, consult doc.. Good luck.
