For the past few months my stools have been quite pale in colour, almost like a mixed peanut butter / mustard colour, plus they come out in a consistency that resembles toothpaste. On top of that there seems to be a slight white, slimy film that sits on top of the toilet bowl water. My bowel movements are also inconsistent in regularity. I have changed my diet recently and am eating less fibre and cut out dairy foods, which seems to have helped ease my symptoms slightly. Does anyone have any ideas why my stool colour and consistency are like this?
I do have a history of health problems and recently been diagnosed with IBS, CFS and Fibromyalgia. About 2 to 3 years ago I had an upper abdominal ultrasound, faecal elastase and faecal blood test, endoscopy and colonoscopy and all the results were good, no problems detected, even colonoscopy biopsies were fine. However I never feel 100%, always a slight feeling of sickness and nausea that can get quite bad a points, I also feel quite lightheaded and unsteady at times, usually when I'm feeling more sick than normal.
I'd be grateful if anyone can share their views and thoughts on this, I'm putting it down to IBS, but any other suggestions would be appreciated.
Many thanks in advance.
