Soft stools but difficult to pass

I get this from time to time and now have had a 'flare up'. When I go to the toilet it's difficult to pass yet the stools are small and soft (no 5 on the Bristol stool chart).

I can not think what causes this and it really worries me cause normally I'm probably a no.4 on the chart) I am currently following the low fodmap diet.

Does anyone else get this?

Have you tried Fybogel? It's a bulk forming laxative & should help.
