    Never had thin bowel movements. If they are thin like string, with or without abdominal pain cramps you are probably best to get them checked at your doctors. Could be infection but also other things as well.

    Hi Joyce. That's good to know they are not like string. Depending on what you eat can also have this effect on your stools. I have IBS and am suffering a lot of different odd symptoms at the moment. Persistent discomfort in upper abdomen, radiates to the right side and left side then settles back above my belly button. Am due a test for HPylori. I also have a very wide variety of stools. Long, fat, thin, dark, pale, normal etc etc etc. It's a nuisance. Good luck with your investigations.

      Good luck you too
