Can someone help me guess what is causing these weird stools and parasite looking things? (w/ pics)

    Hi guys, I have some GI issues and/or systemic infections as well [bartonella/lyme/protozoans?]

    Anyways my stools are always broken apart into weird shaped chunks that sink immediately. I havent had a normal formed log-shaped stool in 2 years. I also sometimes get weird swishing sensations under my left ribcage like a worm or something squirming around. I took a pic of my stool/bowel movement for reference and posted it here.

    The second pic is a weird parasite looking thingy that is often in the toilet after a bowel movement- can anyone identify that?

    Any thoughts as to what can be causing what's in these 2 pictures? Thanks!

    That is probably mucous and the sensation you are feeling is inflammation.

    I've been getting similar results lately....The thing that helps the most is getting to a beach or someplace with really good air quality, then my BM's look healthy.

    I agree with think tank looks like mucous.

    Do you have POTS, Dysmotility or IBS?

    This can all play into shape and consistency of your stool.
