Help ID-ing digestive problem?

I started experiencing abdominal pain and bowel changes several months ago. I noticed an increase in appetite, abdominal pain that came and went and less frequent bowel movements.

Then, a few weeks ago I started experiencing abdominal pain earlier in the morning (almost immediately as soon as I woke up) which would fade away quickly. I also started feeling this discomfort in my stomach that feels as though I'm about to get diarrhea, sometimes it fades away and some times I end up going to the bathroom. Generally, I don't have diarrhea- what I do notice is very long or large feces. I'm guessing that's a result of going to the bathroom less frequently.

These problems came on rather suddenly, and when I last saw my doctor she said that the pain could be attributed to "Stress" but there is nothing really stressing me out..
If anyone has any ideas on what this could be, please let me know. I will make another doctor's appointment if this continues. In the meantime, I am adding more fiber to my diet and probiotics and hoping it does the trick.
