Alarm signs to check: Maybe IBS; maybe not GI. Recurrent abdominal discomfort is first addressed by accompanying signs/symptoms that may localize the organ involved: vaginal discharge or bleeding, alteration in periods, pregnancy risk? Fever, nausea, vomiting, altered stool pattern, blood with stool, tenderness, distension? Painful urination, blood in urine? Recent trauma, herniations? Risk factors? Other tests done? ...Read more

Complete evaluation: You need a complete evaluation by a gastroenterologist well-versed in functional bowel issues. I suggest that you start keeping a food journal where you write down what you ate, at what time, when you develop symptoms, and what the symptoms are. Sometimes food allergies can cause this, and other times it ends up being an entity called irritable bowel disorder. In any case, see your doctor. ...Read more

Get an exam: You may have lactose intolerance. An infectious agent is also possible. Bloody mucus is something that should be checked out. If there is a focus of cancer it can often be cured if caught early enough. I suggest discussing this with the same physician who did your colonoscopy as soon as possible. ...Read more
