Should frequently having loose stool be checked out? Sometimes it is having loose stool 2/3 times for a day maybe like once a month, sometimes it is loose stool for a period of time (for 1-2 weeks) and sometimes it is like a 1-4 times a month. Basically, different interval and different frequency. I do feel bloated more easily, eat quite little but feel full quite easily, and feel like I have a lot of gas in my belly ~ burped a lot. [Been going on for a while with different severity in frequency]
I have spoken to the GP about my concerns, but they don't seem to care or concern, they asked me whether I have traveled to other countries (no), change diet (no), lost excessive weight (no), blood in stool (no) or belly pain(no) so they think it is just irritable bowel syndrome, didn't let me come in or do any tests.
Is this normal? Is it fine? Should I get it checked out elsewhere? What could be the cause of this? What could this be a symptom of?
I was just wondering should this type of occurrence be checked out, do some scans/tests and what kind of scans/tests? Who I should see for it?
