Loose mushy stool every morning upon waking

Edited , 3 users are following.

Hi, I'm 38 year old female and for a couple of years now I've been having loose mushy stools upon waking. I only have the one bowel movement a day and have no other symptoms, no bleeding, no weight loss, and feel OK. On the odd occasion I have a bowel movement later in the day which isn't very often it is more firmer and blobs. Is this something I should be concerned about. I do recall having a terrible sickness and tummy bug which lasted 2 weeks and woke up one night soaking wet as though I had been thrown Into a bath, my pjamas were soaked. Don't remember if my stools have been like this since the bug and if it could be related in anyway?

      Hi, no I haven't had any investigations, I feel I eat healthy, I always cook from scratch with fresh ingredients. For breakfast I have toast or porridge. Then dinner I have a sandwich of ham or cheese with tomatoes. Then for my main meals through out the week I eat salmon roast potatoes and green beans, spaghetti bolognese , chicken curry and rice, steak with sweet potatoes,a Sunday cooked roast etc. I have one or two coffees a day and squash through out the day.
