I started to have Irritable Bowel Syndrome acting in my early 20s. I had long period with no problems but it started to act again (I am now 40). I had tests recently (colonoscopy (3 years ago), upper endoscopy (two months ago) and even a CT scan (6 months ago)). I take an antispasmodic (Trimebutine) and now my stools are less messy. Still, I most of the time leave skid marks on the toilet bowl (this started I guess 9 months ago). I talked to my gastroenterologist who told me that is nothing to worry about and that is not weird if it happens when my stool are loose and soft. Still, I am somehow convinced that I have a kind of malabsorption problem :-( I now have noticed that these skid marks happen even when the stool are not so soft.
So I ma just wondering: is it kind of normal that stool leave skid marks (when formed).
Thanks for your answers !
