little ball like stools

I have been experiencing constipation and passing little ball like stools for the past couple of days now.
Is this normal?

My Dr says those "Dum Dum" poops are expelled  from the pockets of diverticilitis. I get them too, they are very hard to pass.

Don't get worried about diverticulitis.  You usually don't get that until you are over 40 and I don't think you sound like you are.  Also, here are the symptoms and common signs  of diverticulitis:

Pain that's often sudden, severe, and located in the lower left side of the abdomen. Less commonly, abdominal pain may be mild at first, and become worse over several days, possibly fluctuating in intensity
Change in bowel habits
Abdominal tenderness
Fever
Nausea and vomiting
Constipation
Diarrhea
Less common signs and symptoms of diverticulitis may include:

Bloating
Bleeding from your rectum

Do you have these?

I have been told by doctors that contipation possibly from IBS but maybe just not drinking enough water at times cause stool to be that way.  Try drinking water, juice etc.  Not sodas and see what happens.

To the person with dark stool I would have it checked if it is really dark.  Just my opinion.
Good luck!
