What’s wrong with my poop?

Many individuals experience a change in stool from time to time – what one has eaten, medications and supplements, and emotional events all may contribute to irregular “pooping” patterns.  Perhaps there is an underlying flora imbalance, perhaps there is an emotional event trigger, perhaps there are abnormalities of the anorectal musculature or sensation, and then the accumulation of factors eventually leads to the symptoms of what is often diagnosed as irritable bowel syndrome.
