    unusual stool

    I am normally constipated with blood in my stool.  But for last three weeks I've been having stool that look like grapes. They look like Type 1 but they are soft. And I have a bowl movement either everyday or every second day. They are extremely hard to pass.This isn't my usual constipation. Every time I go to the bathroom I have to strain so hard, so long. It makes me think there's a blockage in the way and I am unable to pass stool when it's ready.

    Can you give me some advice on this?

    Well I am not an expert, but blood in your stool could be a sign of piles (Haemorrhoids) assuming the blood is fresh red blood. If the blood is old blood and mixed in with your stool I would advise seeing your doctor as this can be a sign of colon/bowel Cancer. You might want to also try upping your water intake as any form of constipation can be caused by dehydration, and weird as it sounds, even diarrhea can be a sign of constipation.

    Hope this helps.
