I have soft BMs almost every day but only go once per day.

Posted , 4 users are following.

I don't know if I should consider this diarrhea at this point but I am having soft stools almost every day even though I only go once a day. I'm not going more than once per day or having abdominal cramping or any other diarrhea symptoms, it just comes out soft, almost mushy. I do have a normal BM every blue moon but no idea why I do sometimes and most of the time its loose. I already went through a colonoscopy, endoscopy, various stool tests (ova and parasite, c diff, h pylori, etc. ) Everything was clear and the doctor said I was healthy but I just don't feel healthy.

    I forgot to add this all started a year ago and my only diagnosis so far was mild non reactive gastritis. Not taking any medications.

    Have you tried a food diary to see if diet is the cause? Foods like rice and bananas can help to bind your stools more.

    It sounds like you are 5-6 on the Bristol stool chart, which could mean your diet is lacking fibre. If you are suffering with stress or anxiety, that could also make your stools a bit looser. Also caffeine and alcohol can affect you. It may be you have mild IBS. If it isn't painful or causing you any bad symptoms and you have been checked out, I wouldn't be too concerned.
