I am a 17 year old highschool student who has been having ongoing stomach cramps and when I have bowel movements, I am not constipated but it's extremely sticky. It has gotten so bad that after every bowel movement I am forced to cleanse thoroughly in the bathtub, because so much of "it" has attached to my hair down there. I am not sure if it is mucus in my stool because there is nothing visible in it besides a change in colour (it is really light brown), but it is much stickier and doesn't "flow" out anymore. Also around the same time these problems started I have found that I am sweating a lot more than usual. I won't feel hot and I am wearing appropriate clothes for the weather but I will just feel sweat roll down my side without feeling hot. I generally have to apply deodorant multiple times a day and still end up changing about 3 shirts a day. I also feel like I am sweating a lot more from the anus as well. The sweat also smells a lot worse than usual, I am not sure if the sweat from my anus smells because there is not nearly as much as from the armpits, but it worries me. The sweating is not a result of puberty either because I noticed an increase in sweating when I hit puberty, but never this bad. Please help with one or more of these problems!

  • Update: Forgot to add that I have been to the doctor's about it and he had me change my diet (high in fibre, lots of liquid, etc) and he took blood tests, neither have helped or revealed anything.
