mucous

Posted By Richard F on August 12, 1998 at 16:34:12:







I am 44 yrs old, more or less in perfect health but I have some
GI problems. I definitely don't have irritable bowel syndrome as
I am pretty "regular" having a "normal" bowel movement almost
every AM upon arising. I do have a consistent problem, however,
that is mild to moderate discomfort, a feeling that I need to
have a bowel movement in the evening, however, I am almost always
unable to produce one. Often I go
to sleep feeling bloated and like I have to go. I almost always
wake up feeling fine. I decided to write because a couple of days
ago I felt particularly bloated almost painful lower tract. The
next day I had a bowel movement that was almost entirely mucous.
Today I had a bowel movement that was maybe 10% mucous. Would
appreciate any insight.
