Oh my god you poor thing, i know exactly what you're going through. Every now and again i get paranoid that it must be bowel cancer that i have and that it's not just Crohns. I'm still not convinced and am waiting on a colonoscopy to put my mind at ease. I'm in Ireland so will be waiting a pretty long time unfortunately. ANYWAY to get to your point, i'm definitely no expert but the white stuff is most probably mucous which is extremely common in those with Crohns. So as the other posts were saying, this most definitely sounds like Crohns symptoms. And the only way to put your mind at ease is by having all the necessary tests. Seriously, try and enjoy the holiday period as best you can. It took my doctor almost 10 yrs to diagnose me and as i knew nothing of any website like this, i was convinced all those yrs that i was dying. I was actually relieved when i received a diagnosis. Now i'm just fed up with the disease (as is everybody who has it!!!).
But keep your head up and try to stop worrying, because for me anyway and alot of others, stress makes all the symptoms much worse. Viscious Circle isn't it!!
Happy Christmas anyway and don't worry too much............
