Thought I had a sore back about 5-6 months ago, then I had a pinch in my side.(kidney?) It made me feel nautious, and had to lie down for a few minutes. Got the sweats and felt like throwing up, guess it wasn\\\\\\\'t my back. Since then, months later, I noticed that I have mucus in my stool that is normally clear, and very thick. It is kind of like when a chest cold is going away, and you cough out that thick mucus from your chest, almost like a rubber band. Once or twice the mucus was whitesh is cloor, but mostly it is clear or mixed in with the stool. Flush with a hot water bag, and back in a week.

Hello and welcome to e health forum.

The description of your symptoms appear to be due to various causes including - indigestion, intestinal infections, malabsorption syndromes, Irritable bowel syndrome, etc.

The best way to proceed further is to consult a doctor for conducting a stool examination, which will give an idea to know the cause of your stool changes and the proper treatment.
