I know I've been complaining lately about all sorts of pains (in addition to the normal ones) so I hope you guys can tolerate one more. Ever since I had the flu a couple of weeks ago, I've had bad tummy problems. I have also had unusually light stools. I know, I know. I'm going to go to the doc next week or whenever I get back from taking my son back to college. I've got a form of collitis and IBS but this is a new one. The only time I see much color is when I have diahhrea. I the old IBS cycle - hard to go, diahhrea, and then the light colored stuff (blood - bright red too). It used to go in cycles of weeks but now it is days. I'm sick of being sick. I hope I have not just formed some allergy to wheat and gluten - I googled light stools.
