Issues with "Runs": Having symptoms since 2012 is a long time to have had this issue. I wonder if you have an inflammatory disease of the intestines like ulcerative colitis or crohns. While these usually are associated with blood in the stool, you will need a work up to determine the cause of your symptoms. You should get evaluated sooner rather than later. Hope this helps.
