Here is my problem. I have been having diarrhea for almost 2 weeks. At first I thought it was food poisoning because it has happened to me before, so I wasn't very concerned. During the period, I would often pass gas (very foul smelling) and go to the bathroom up to three times a day. However, three days ago I found blood in my stool. At that moment, it wasn't much just enough to appear on my toilet paper. Then, I went again, and gradually the blood started increasing to the point that I am bleeding a lot now. In fact, my entire feces is covered in blood and I only see blood on my toilet paper. The feces is in small red chunks and sinks into the toilet bowl. Also, before during the diarrhea stage, I didn't have any problem with defecation, now however I am struggling. My stomach is cramping and it is making weird noises and I am even having trouble passing gas. When I do defecate which is very frequently now, it comes out in small quantity and as mentioned entirely covered in blood. I always feel uneasiness and feel that I am not finished but it doesn't come out. When I push, I see blood dripping in the toilet bowl. I keep having to go back to the bathroom every 15 minutes.

I went to the emergency room immediately after I saw blood in my stool and they said all my tests are normal and it is only a case of unexplained diarrhea. When I asked what is the reason for the blood, they said during diarrhea irritation occur which leads to bleeding. Then, what about the cramps and the constipation? I don't think they know what was wrong with me so they just said it was diarrhea.

I am 21 years old, could it be colon cancer?

I have the exact same thing except I havent gotten to the point of completely bloody stool yet. For the past few months Ive had loose stool and the feeling that I wasn't finished in the bathroom. I also am very gassy and it smells very strange! Today I noticed small amounts of blood on my toilet paper and just now I had bloody diarrhea. This is the first time I've had bloody diarrhea, but not the first time I've seen blood on the toilet paper. I dont know what to do but I feel like something isn't right! Please let me know if you get anymore information on this!

You should all go to see a Gastroentrologist. Tell them your symptoms and that you are experiencing constipation and bloody stools, and they should perform a colonoscopy. They will be able to see if there is something going on inside your colon, it could be ulcers, diverticulitis, colitis, or an obstruction. That happened to me. I had endometriosis (I am female) and it had grown through my colon and into the inside of my colon wall and was causing me to block up. I just had colon resection surgery three weeks ago (open surgery) and am recovering now. I am starting to see a little bit of blood on my stools, but the surgeon said, a little is normal, as my bowel is healing.
Good Luck!

I have the same basic symptoms. I have had diarrhea for the last 2 weeks and the last week it has been bloody. FREAKED ME THE HELL OUT!! I will be going to the Dr. tomorrow. My symptoms are: Stomach cramping, gas, bloated feeling, little nausea, and diarrhea 5-6 times a day with blood mixed in and when I wipe.. its bloody also. Not bright blood, but a little darker like spagetti sauce. The stool is small loose pieces with blood all mixed in. cramping & blood getting worse, so I have to see a dr now. does this sound like a stomach bug? bacteria? cancer? am I going to die?

I HOPE YOU READ THIS

To girls who experiences those symptoms when on their period-------SERIOUSLY i am 100 percent sure you have what is called ENDOMETRIOSIS.
YOU DO NOT HAVE CANCER. I had these symptoms,my gynelocologist got me a pelvic sonogram and endometrial tissues were found all the way into my rectum! The tissues from the uterus growing more than they should and into other surrounding areas is what causes the weakness ,constipation ,blood in stool etc that goes on when you pms. You may even have an ovarian cyst. I had both problems,they found it on the sonogram ,did a laproscopic procedure and now im better. YOU MUST GET A PELVIC SONOGRAM. I know how painful it is ,i wish somebody posted this sooner,hopefully you are already better.

You all more than likely just have a colon infection. Prob. caused by c-diff. I am not a doctor but had the same symptoms and thought I was dying. The doctor said it could be caused by taking antibiotics, most commonly amoxacillin. I had just been on that a few weeks prior for sinus infection (rough month). The antibiotic kill the good bacteria in your colon. There is also other causes of a colon infection but this fit for me. They prescribed me some antibiotics that will kill the bad bacteria in my colon and restore the good. It seemed like it would never work but about 4 days later I started getting better. Hope this helps. You can look up more info on a colon infection... just google it.

Any of you with these symptoms have celiac disease? if not you might want to get tested for it. I do have it and i am not pursuing the strict diet as i am supposed to and i have a lot of the same symptoms you all described. the uncomfortable pain in my left side right under my rib cage (stomach) constipation spells followed by diarrhea spells. i feel bloated all the time of course and i have to push to go to the toilet. i have noticed blood. it is usually clear which is a good sign but sometimes i have these "chunks" i know i do have hemorrhoids as well (Am i charming or what? LOL) sorry i don't mean to make light of the issue i think i am just tired of it myself and its my way to deal with it. Anyways maybe you can check into the celiac deal and see if it can be the reason. I am going to try to stick to the diet and see. Good luck to you all and God Bless.

Heather- I am a 25 year old male who has been diagnosed with IBS recently and have had the same symptoms. I had blood tests and a colonoscopy to rule out more serious problems. I have been told with IBS everyone is different, you have to rule out certain foods on a trial and error basis. It is very frustrating and and scary at times and u never truly know if its something more serious. Perhaps keep a diary of the food u eat each day and the types of bowel movements. So far I have ruled out cauliflower, snow peas, capsicum and virtually all fast food.

Hey man, I don't know if you'll ever see this, but I have the same problem as well, and am the same as you. I'm a guy, and turned sixteen little while ago, and am trying to get myself to talk to my parents or a doctor. I noticed the blood a while back, and thought nothing of it, but it's getting worse. I don't want to go to my parents just yet, and it's a small town, so I know all the doctors, and they'll deffinetely tell my parents. I am one of those worry about everything people, and so this is torturing me terribly, could you comment back, if you've found out anything. Please?
