Little white bb`s in bowel movement
For about the last 6 months, I have been having little white hard things in my stool, about the size of a bb and round. There are quite a few in each stool I have. I am 39 and have problems with constipation because of my medicine (effexor). When not on it, I am normal.
Most likely this is diet related, but if you are concerned, ask your doctor if a colonoscopy is indicated.
