Recently I discovered bloody diarrhea, bright red and dark red. Today I realized a reddish yellow mucus like stirring in my stool. I have recently felt abdominal pain, bloating and have had difficulty having normal stools since I had children 12 years ago. Can someone please tell me what I should do next? The string like reddish yellow mucus concerns me. I feel as if I need help. Concerned me needs help from helpful you!
