Oddly shaped stools-lumpy rope like appearance
I am 24 and have had stomach aches of some form for as long as i can remember and am quite used to being incredibly bloated, gassy, and alternate between being constipated and suffering from diarrhea.  Lately however the shape of my stools concerns me.

They appear like a lumpy rope or like nodules on a string and are often in a twisted curly patten.  They often dangle (without breaking usually) and I find I also am not able to completely evacuate myself.

My mother has Celiac's and I was tested for it through a blood test and it came up negative.  My GP has said I have IBS and possibly lactose intolerance.  I assume I take enough fibre as I use metamucil 2x/day, but perhaps I should try more?  Are my stool symptoms consistent with IBS or should I be more concerned?  

Thank you.
