Colitis: Symptoms are consistent with an inflammatory process involving the colon. The colitis with bleeding is best evaluated by a gastroenterologist who will most likely perform a gentle sigmoidoscopy without any preparation because of fear of further irritating the colon. This may reveal ulcerative colitis or simply a nonspecific colitis with bleeding. You should consult a gastroenterologist asap. ...Read more

Intestine (Definition)

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

Severe cramping in lower intestine and stomach for the past 4 hours. I've had bowl movement, no blood. Should I go to urgent care?

Severe cramping in lower intestine and stomach for the past 4 hours. I've had bowl movement, no blood. Should I go to urgent care?

Go to ER or UC: If the severe cramping continues, you should go to ER or Urgent care. Are you having nausea /or vomiting. Is the bowel movement loose/diarrhea? The 2 most common causes of diarrhea associated with cramping are viral gastroenteritis and food related illnesses. These type of illnesses generally resolve without medical treatment, but may need treatment if symptoms severe. Any fever? Last menses? ...Read more

Lower abdo pain right side.regular bowel but hard&dark.blood I suspect rectal.rectal pain.2day sharp pain low abdo when passing stoel. Possible cause?

Abdominal pain: I am an ER physician so right sided lower abdominal pain always concerns me. However, when you have the pain when passing stool my likely thought would be rectal fissure which is helped with increased fluids and fiber. Other thought would be diverticulits or diverticular pain. If symptoms persist or worsen get checked. ...Read more

Hello me and my girlfriend. Had anal sex and she felt discomfort in her lower stomach she tried to make a bowel. Movment there was no blood is she ok?

Hello me and my girlfriend. Had anal sex and she felt discomfort in her lower stomach she tried to make a bowel. Movment there was no blood is she ok?

Not designed for it: Hopefully she will be ok, but her anus is not designed for in/out, in/out. Just like in any big city, some streets are one-way and some streets are two-way. A vagina is created or evolved to be a two-way street (penis in, baby out). However, the gastrointestinal tract is designed to be one-way, with an opening on each end. Food goes in the mouth, and the brown stuff goes out the butt. ...Read more

My ct scan upper gi and lower gi and blood reports normal but doctor seems that I have intestinal tb what will be last best test for intestinal tb?

My ct scan upper gi and lower gi and blood reports normal but doctor seems that I have intestinal tb what will be last best test for intestinal tb?

Difficult to detect: Unfortunately there is no great test for detecting intestinal TB, assuming you have already had double contrast barium small bowel x rays. CT can help detect enlarged lymph nodes suggestive of TB. The most common site of GI TB is the ilieocecal region, which may be reached with an endoscope and this can be used to obtain cultures/smears or biopsies of granulomas. ...Read more

Lower back stiffness for several months. X-ray and blood work normal. Bleeding with bowel movement 1 time. Dr. recommends colonoscopy. Other options?

Lower back stiffness for several months. X-ray and blood work normal. Bleeding with bowel movement 1 time. Dr. recommends colonoscopy. Other options?

An alternative is: Checking your bowel movements for the presence of blood over several months. Colonoscopy is not necessary if tests for blood in the stool are negative over time and there is no family history of colon cancer. Your lower back stiffness is most likely muscular. Try gentle low back exercises every day after a warm shower. See: http://orthoinfo.aaos.org/topic.cfm?topic=a00302 ...Read more

Blood in stool: Blood in stool is an abnormal and must be explained especially since it occurred three times. It may simply be due to hemorrhoids but could be caused by right sided diverticulosis, inflammatory bowel disease or a growth in the colon.

Pro mean with: And bio means life. Probiotics help the GI system digest food. Anti means against. So, if one takes excessive antibiotics (which are sometimes needed) they can kill off the good bacteria in our GI systems and we can have digestive problems. This can happen w/out antibiotics at times too. So, the probiotics replace the good bacteria that are missing or low. Peace and good health. See doctor. ...Read more

It's been two weeks since period. Cramping and lower back pain and spotting for a week. Blood from vagina after bowel movement. Periods are not heavy.

Check a pregnancy: Test. If negative, wait a week and check it again. You need at least 2. Then go to GYN or family doctor to make sure you do not have a bladder infection or vaginal infection, which could cause the discharge above. If everything is clear, then you may need to wait for your period to reset, whatever the triggering event was. Be patient. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more
