Ragi Causes Constipation Or Loose Stool
Any illnesses besides IBS that cause diarrhea, loose stool, cramping, upset stomach, and occasional constipation? No vomiting or blood in stool.

Paranoid about colon cancer. Constipated sometimes, pellet like stools, not bloody or pencil like, no weight loss, pain in abdomen, etc. Help?
Doubt it!: In the absence of a family history of colon cancer and without relevant signs or symptoms, colon cancer is placed much lower on the list as the cause of your constipation.

Is it possible to have IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) -without- constipation or diarrhea? Can I have IBS without having constipation or diarrhea?
Unusual: Irritable bowel syndrome is a common disorder affecting your large intestine. It commonly causes cramping, abdominal pain, bloating gas, diarrhea and constipation, and can be controlled.

Symptoms: dark loose stools, difficult/incomplete evacuation, severe abdominal distention from trapped gas, mucous. Diagnosed IBS. I think Proctitis?
Typical IBS symptoms: As you suspect, these symptoms indeed are consistent with irritable bowel syndrome. But they aren't particularly suggestive of proctitis (inflmmation of the rectum). Inflammatory bowel disease (e.g. Crohn's disease) can cause similar symptoms as IBS, and also can cause proctitis. So I suggest you raise these questions with the doctor who diagnosed IBS then follow her advice. Good luck! ...Read more

No: Blood just on the toilet paper or a few drops in the bowl is often due to bleeding hemorrhoids. However other causes need to be considered, especially if you are over the age of 40.
