If there is truly blood then IBD must be a consideration, but plenty of people with IBS have blood related to constipation or hemorrhoids or another common cause. Best to see your doc for an exam. The real test is some sort of endoscopy with a direct look at the inside of your intestine and consideration of biopsy. ...Read more

Tarry?: Blood in the stomach is cathartic (leads to diarrhea) but usually, turns the stool "tarry" in consistency. So, yes, a change to black liquid stool can be a sign of bleeding in the GI tract. Fatigue & nausea are also consistent. The bleeding may be sporadic (ie, slow bleed) but still cause these symptoms, so it behooves you to get checked out by a physician. A simple stool test will confirm blood. ...Read more

Are blood test 100% accurate for judging crohns flare ups? I feel like I have had the worst flare up ever. Diarrhea, blood in stool, nausea, pain. Everything negative. Help?
No: There is no test that I know of that is 100% accurate for any medical condition. There is no specific test that will rule in or rule out Crohn's flare ups. Commonly used, ESR and CRP are non specific inflammation tests. Patients with Crohn's still develop gastroenteritis or colitis like diseases that are commonly assigned and treated as flare ups. ...Read more
