Anus Itch For A Week Then Loose Bowel 3 Times A Day
Loose bm once every other day with normal bm in between for 1 week. Some mucus. This cycle resolves for a week or 2 then resurfaces. What could it be?
The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet). This empties into the colon or large intestine (about 5 feet), which then becomes the sigmoid colon, rectum and out the anus. So, every morsel eaten ...Read more
I've had rectal bleeding for over a year now. The bleeding is frequent, usually every day when I have a bowel movement. After a colonoscopy last summe?
What does frequent grainy pasty stool mean in a two old? 2 to 3 times a day for a about week and half.
Is it normal to bowel movement only pebbles for a couple days, then have to bowel movement five times in one day?
Not usual, but...: although the pattern you described is not usual, some variation in the amount and frequency of bowel movements is not abnormal. As long as you're not having pain or bleeding, and as long as the stool consistency is fairly normal, I wouldn't worry. Increasing fiber in the diet will help regulate this. A fiber supplement each day, such as Metamucil, can help. Increasing fluid intake is also vital. ...Read more
Is it normal that after worm treatment (when I took 8 pills a day) my bowel movements increased to 6 a day. I pooped that many times with a quick need?
Can be side effect: Loose stools or increased frequency of bowel movements can be a side effect of mebendazole, a common treatment for intestinal parasites such as worms. Side effects that continue beyond a week after the end of treatment with mebendazole should be discussed with the prescribing physician. ...Read more
I'm 30 weeks and been constipated for about a week I made two kinda hard bowel movement today than an hour later two diarrhea bowel movements what can?
Problem solved: Your rectum absorbs a lot of the fluid in your stool since you have been constipated the stool in your rectum has been preventing the rest from losing the fluid it normally would. When you had a bowel movement the colon emptied itself including the softer more liquid stool. If the diarrhea continues there may be another illness, but hopefully this just marks a resolution to your constipation. ...Read more
Is it normal after having a colonoscopy to eat a sandwhich and have a bowel movement 10 hours later multiple times?
Yes: colonoscopy is there to examine the colon, one that has been cleaned out by oral meds such as GoLYTLY. This usually cleans out most of the bowel but more proximally in the rt. colon and distal small bowel residual food products persist. Eating a sandwhich and having a bowel movement 10 hrs later especially if multiple doesn't represent the digested sandwich but the residual content after prep. ...Read more
Started a fiber supplement. Noticed past few days when I have a bm its usually a lot of blood with it. Not period or hemmrhoid. I take lax 3x a week?
Cramping pain in bowel at night, unable to pass stool lasts 15-20 mins. Happens twice a month and could happen twice in a week. What is this? Thanks.
Constipation: Most episodes of constipation can be episodic. Try to get more fiber in your diet (whole grain, bran, fresh fruits/veg). You can also take fiber supplement such as fiberchoice, benefiber, or metamucil. Critical to do is to drink more water to stay hydrated. 2 glasses of h2o initially, followed by1 glass every hour until bedtime. Call your doctor if stools have blood or if they are pencil thin. ...Read more

Flare : Symptoms are most consistent with a flare of your ulcerative colitis. Infection from c. Difficile bacteria or CMV virus can mimic uc flare as can a general viral gastroenteritis ("stomach flu").

Do changing bowel movements (formed stool/diarrhea) occur for a few days after colonoscopy. Had a colonoscopy two days ago and now had one full formed bowel movement then one of diarrhea. Before procedure I had difficult BM or constipation ?
For the past 6 days i've been having a bowel movement at lease 5 times a day. Could there be a problem? Sometimes it's solid and also diarrhea
Finished a 10 day prescription of amoxicillin. I noticed I have a bowel movement every day (usually once every 3-7 days) but they are blue-green?..
Med effect: Probably this is a feature of the antibiotic changing the normal microbial flora in your gut. As long as not yellowish and very foul smelling, should be ok. Could also be opportunity to add stool softener (miralax/fiber gummies/prunes--whatever you can take daily and tolerate) to increase the frequency of your bms. Constip & infreq bms can predispose to diverticulitis among other things. ...Read more
Bowel movements maybe once a week since I was a kid unless I take magnesium daily. Usually stool is on the diahrria side, occasionally white chuncks?
Weekly bowel: movements indicates a need to see a gastroenterologist, GI doctor. Slow transit time in the gut can leave us open to poor immune function. Magnesium helps. Maybe other minerals and nutrients are low also. Consider a Micronutrient Test like the one at Spectracell lab in Texas. Can be done through local professionals. Peace and good health. ...Read more
Had yellow/brown stools for a week now only 1 movement a day as normal but it sometimes firm other times urgent and loose should I worry?
I wouldn't: I believe the two main possibilities are that you had a viral gastroenteritis or mild food poisoning which has resolved on its own, and now your stools are gradually returning to normal. Or you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome--a disorder of normal bowel function which results in cramping, abdominal pain, bloating,gas, diarrhea and constipation. It is managed with increased fiber/other dietary change ...Read more
