Hello! I 've had a strange problem related to bowel

Patient

Q: Hello! I 've had a strange problem related to bowel movement, as of yesterday. While I don' t seem to realize an urge to evacuate, I notice that stool is "leaking" from my rectum in small quantities of liquid nature (for the most part). I am frequently challenged by costipation episodes that can last for days or weeks, but at this point I didn't have particular problem evacuating, not during the week at least. Also, this has been a quite stressful period for me-I don't know if that is of any importance. Please help, it's quite frustrating!!!
