Foul smelling gas, lower abdominal pain and cramps during bowel movement, bloating, rectal bleeding. Approx 3 months with symptoms. 27 yr old female?

Foul smelling gas, lower abdominal pain and cramps during bowel movement, bloating, rectal bleeding. Approx 3 months with symptoms. 27 yr old female?

Please get help...: Gi bleeding is never normal, but when prolonged for months associated with lower abdominal distress as you describe, then colitis (colon inflammation) must be ruled out. Possibilities at your age most likely include: 1) inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis or crohn's); 2) infection, maybe chronic or recurrent. Don't delay further--get evaluated by your doctor or GI specialist.

Weight loss: Which is unintentional indicates a need for you to see your doctor. You also mention other GI symptoms. Your doc can help. Probiotics may be part of the solution. Peace and good health.

Hi I am having lower abdominal pain that is constant but does intermittently get worse. I also have bloating and discomfort. I feel like it's constipa?

Abdominal pain: Persistent abdominal discomfort, especially if associated tenderness, distension, nausea or vomiting is present, should be examined by a physician. Don't take a laxative, but if simple constipation is present, insert a rectal dulcolax suppository or a gentle fleets enema. If symptoms persist and you're not sure you're constipated, get examined promptly in the hospital emergency room.

Left lower abdominal pain, bloating, nausea what can this be?

Left lower abdominal pain, bloating, nausea what can this be?

Few thoughts...: Left lower abdominal pain is commonly associated with either diverticulosis (it is), constipation or irritable bowel syndrome (ibs). Bloating can be associated with both. Nausea without vomiting is non-specific and could go along with all. If symptoms are severe or persist then see your doctor. Good luck!

What causes, lower abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea, and hot flashes?

What causes, lower abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea, and hot flashes?

Bloating, diarrhea: By the way you describe the symptoms it is either a food allergy (i.e. Gluten or lactose) with "hot flashes" just being vasodilatation form histamine release, or viral/bacterial enteritis (i.e. Stomach flu or food poisoning). If it is a food allergy it will occur regularly, a enteritis typically passes without much treatment.

I've been having lower abdominal pain for over a week, flatulence, and bloating. Can this be a result of holidays excesses? What should I do?

I've been having lower abdominal pain for over a week, flatulence, and bloating. Can this be a result of holidays excesses? What should I do?

Abdominal bloating: There are lots of reasons (some quite concerning) for abdominal discomfort /bloating, but not all of them are due to the GI tract. Also, functional syndromes may be present without underlying inflammation or structural pathology. Check with your doctor for examination ; treatment options, particularly if your problem persists after resumed moderation of alcohol, caffeine, carbonated, fatty foods.

I am experiencing bloating or abdominal fullness, lower abdominal pain and rectal bleeding. The following also describes me: Diarrhea. The pain has been for about a week.?

Need to examine: Bleeding from the lower end needs to be evaluated by a physical examination. It is likely to be hemorrhoids, however, even that needs to be addressed by a doctor and you should see one. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine
