Thin stool or Flat stool
My question is regarding the difference between flat stool and thin stool and possible causes.  Recently my stool has had a flat look to it.  I am not sure what constitutes "thin", but it is approximately the width of 2 or 2 1/2 pencils.   When one thinks of thin stool, what is the general consensus?  There are really no other causes..  
Actually, I have one other question regarding diahrea;  Is being diagnosed with diahrea the frequency you pass stool a day or is it more of a consistency of the stool?  For instance, I probably go 4-5 times a day, but my stool is "softer" sometimes ,loose other times and regualr sometimes.  Occasionally I suffer from a upset stomach, but no pain, mucus  or blood is present. Any ideas?
