Ibs Blood In Stools
Mucus in stool Everyday. GI dr says its ibs. Blood test and stool culture normal. Colonoscopy not done. Can ibs cause mucus in stool Everyday?
Pea size & on nickel size lumps right side stomach pain when I bend Ct scan negative blood test normal gas right side dull pain off and on I have ibs red blood in stool twice dr say hemrodes I get ultrasound Tuesday?
Good work up: With a negative CT, the lumps are likely just "skin deep" and a physician's examination is the next step to form a treatment plan or to gain reassurance that no treatment is needed. Ultrasound is the correct next step for the abdominal pain, although there is low likelihood that any disease process identified is particularly severe in light of the CT scan. Hemorrhoids will cause blood in the stool
Semi solid stools for nearly 4 months doc says its IBS have done blood and stool test many time it's normal. I can't afford a colonscopy. Plz help?
Check diet: Good to know that stool and blood work normal. Malformed stools and IBS is often related to digestive issues. Would avoid gluten and animal dairy for 4-6 weeks, start a probiotic with 25billion cfu, chew your food slowly and thoroughly, and include active stress reduction e.g. breathing exercises, restorative yoga, tai chi etc. If not better, try a further elimination diet e.g. FODMAPS diet.
Do IBS symptoms include blood in stool? There were 14 BMs with blood, not just a few drops. All testing Neg, assuming hemorrhoids
Not usual: Tomsee blood. Good that you saw a gastroenterologist
I'm 23 years old and im worried I have colon cancer or ibs...constipation heartburn blood in stool mucus in stool stomach achel?
Yes, not from IBS: Ibs does not cause bloody stools. Bloody stools can be seen with other conditions. Hemorrhoids can cause bright red blood on toilet paper, or in bowl, but so can rectal cancers. Blood coated on stool different from blood mixed in stool. Bloody stools can be seen with infection, inflammation, fragile blood vessels, diverticula (pockets), poor blood flow to bowel, polyps, cancers, etc. C ur doc.See 1 more doctor answer
How do I know if im having a diverticulitis flare up or ibs? I've been diagnosed with both. I have nausea, bloating, bloody stools, lightheadedness?
May be neither: How were you diagnosed with either. Even though you are young I assume you had a colonoscopy to rule out colitis and a CT scan to confirm diagnosis of diverticulitis which is uncommon in 30's. I say this because bloody stools are not usually seen with either of these.See 1 more doctor answer
Anything besides melena cause maroon-to-black goop & dark bms? Two gis agree my pain etc is IBS and that bloody stools in past were hemorrhoids, but this week doc said I don't have hems anymore?
Likely melena: What you describe definitely sounds like melena. If so that means the blood is coming from the upper GI tract. That can be serious and should not be ignored. A stool test for blood will easily tell you the answer, and a complete blood count will give a good indication of how much blood has been lost. Get in to see a doctor as soon as you can.See 1 more doctor answer

BLOOD IN STOOL: MOST COMMON CAUSE IS USUALLY HEMORRHOIDS BUT BLOOD IN THE STOOL BASED ON THE AMOUNT SHOULD ALWAYS BE CHECKED, I AM SURE HE CAN FIND A DOCTOR WHERE HE IS, GOOD LUCK
See Dr.: The solution is you need to see the Dr ASAP....Blood in your stool, (especially accompanied with burning sensation), is never normal. At a young age, the condition is usually benign, like a lower "internal" hemorrhoid, but you can never be sure. See a GI dr for an evaluation of your rectal bleeding, and in the mean time, increase fluids and eat a bland, fiber filled diet. Best wishes.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Parasites from GI tract need to be treated. Please make appointment to see your doctor. Take care.
False hematochezia: Certain foods can color your stool red and can mimic hematochezia (bright red blood in the stool):red gelatin or jello, popsicles, or kool-aid, tomato juice or soup, and large amounts beets. If the red stool persists after avoiding the culprit food item for a few days, it is wise to report this to your doctor for further work-up.
Increasing amounts of bright red blood in stools for about a week or so no real pain. What could do this?
Significant: At your age if you have never had a colonoscopy you need one now! The blood could be secondary to the nsaid's but then your stool would most likely be black. Hemorrhoids are a possibility but you must rule out cancer as you are in the right age group and I don't like the symptoms of back pain and bleeding.See 2 more doctor answers
Alcohol and blood: Alcohol is actually classified as a poison. It is a toxic substance so therefore large quantities of it can be very much a gastric irritant. That is it can cause bleeding. Otherwise there are many causes for blood in one's stool. Ones should never presume it's one thing or another.
