Chunky Stool Question

A few weeks ago, I woke up with a spasm to my lower intestine. I thought it was food, and it went away after about 30 minutes. About the same time, I started having "chunky stools." I have a BM every day, but the stools are like marbles. I've tried fiber, stool softeners, extra water, but it's still the same. Any ideas? I occasionally have the spasms, but not nearly as bad.

Hi there,
You will need a clinical check up and workup for your symptoms. Constipation, Irritable bowel syndrome, malaborption syndromes, celiac disease all can lead to such stools. Adopt lifestyle changes like indulge in exercise, drink more fluids and eat a high fiber diet. All these may help. You may need to follow-up with your personal physician. He may further refer you to a gastroenterologist.
Best luck and regards!
