What is paracetamol? Could it be mucous? Could it have been something you ate? Some foods I pass whole or the skins.

Sounds as though it could be that if you took it yesterday?
 
I wouldn't worry unless it's consistent. Could be mucus...you do have IBS as well.

Emailed by consultant just now he replied in about an hour!

Hi - Pease ignore any short term fluctuations. i am sure the whitish patches could be related to your tablets.

Thanks

Awesome doc you have. If nothing else has changed an this isn't constant...then it's a fluctuation as he mentioned.

Consistency with minor differences (depending on what we consume or how much stress, etc) is definitely the norm with IBS.

Good to take note....then flush it..
Kind if interesting when one can say...."oh yeah, that's what I ate  yesterday"..lol!

'Paracetamol' is English for Tylenol.

I found that out when I visited a 'chemist shop' there a couple of years ago!
