How do IBSers deal with the mucus that the condition brings? Is this a common symptom? Is it very much food related or stress related?
I find that when my IBS is bad and when I go to have a BM movement my colon seems to be very tense so when I "squeeze" to pass stool the motility isn't there and rather I just produce mucus. Do other people notice this too?
(I should add that I eventually will pass the stool. I suffer from IBS-D rather than C)
