I have health anxiety so this has scared me "shit"less. I've poo'd a blob of jelly. Clear but a good 50p size. Wtf is that? I've self-diagnosed all sorts. If it's relevant I've been SO stressed and anxious recently.

I've no idea but I've been doing this for years and am not dead yet. Don't panic.

I wouldn't be concerned about this. If you've been bunged up it's your body's way of helping things out.

Please don't spout crap like this. It's bad enough that some GPs do this without doing checks for bowel disease.

OP I would monitor your cramps/pains and poo for a couple of weeks to see if it recurs and, if so, think about what you might have eaten or been doing to see if there's a pattern or not.

If it does recur, I'd get checked out. There are many bowel diseases as well as IBS (disfunctional bowel), with a range of successful modes of treatment.

I get this when I have eaten a lot of rich dairy food.

I get this when I'm constipated.

I had it when my bowel was inflamed after an upset stomach a few years ago. GP said my large intesting was producing it to protects its surface because poo was passing through it quickly and it was sore.
