Can anyone really answer this question?
« on: December 02, 2013, 12:26:15 PM »
Good afternoon everyone. I was hoping that someone can maybe answer a couple questions for me. I have very severe anxiety and I'm terrified of going to the doctor. I have recently been noticing my stool is coming out semi flat. I've looked on the Internet as many people have and can't grasp what a flat stool exactly looks like. However no one really gives a definitive answer. I'm a teacher and can honestly say this is my only bad habit.  Im a bit of a worrier.  My stools for the most part are semi round (cylindrical much like the shape of a jelly bean except larger scale). They are not perfectly circular like what we want.  I sometimes have small pieces, etc but all are around the same girth.  I now know I do not get enough fiber each day (see now that 25-30 grams are optimal) I get about 15.  Is it possible that with me having a fiber deficit that my stool is softer thus not able to be perfectly round? I do not have other symptoms, ie, blood, weight loss, fatige etc, but like for things to be normal.  And to be quite honest, I am unsure how long they have been this way, I've just recently ( last month or so) started looking.  If I had flat stool, would it be like an airhead candy or like a pencil?  As said, it is more semi ovular with normal width.  Good color etc.  please help with any info.  Thanks
