I am experiencing lower abdominal pain and bloody stool. The following also describe me: Rectal bleeding and Mucus in stool. What should I do?

See a docotor: It is not unusual to experience abdominal pain from muscle strain after 4 days of severe coughing.

Constant abdominal pain relief when passing stool. Mucus in stool and loose stool. Physical exam, blood and stool test were negative. Is it IBS or IBD?

Either or other: Your symptoms are consistent with both irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease among others. I am not sure what physical exam means and it is very important HOW the stool blood test is done to be accurate. Start taking a daily fiber supplement and drink plenty of fluid. If symptoms persist you need to see a GI specialist and have at least a sigmoidoscopy or "short scope". ...Read more

For past 5 months had abdominal pain (improved after bowel movement), mucus in stool, loose stools. Physician refused referral thinking is hypochondria?

Maybe IBS?: If the symptoms have been long term, they may be representative of irritable bowel syndrome. However, other problems must be ruled out before that diagnosis can be determined. If you have not already, I would increase the amount of fiber in your diet. If this does not help, I would return to your doctor, to see what the next step in the work up is. Good luck. ...Read more
