I have had rectal bleeding, on and off for several months. Along with bad stomach cramps after eating. Nothing on colonoscopy.

Above or below: Blood in the stool and pain after eating could be signs of a gastric ulcer, in addition to the colonoscopy, you probably need an EGD (Endoscopic Gastro-Duodenoscopy, camera from above) to rule out a bleeding gastric ulcer. These typically present with stomach pain that is worsened by eating and blood in the stool (usually dark black stools or hidden, occult, blood on lab testing). ...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

Sometimes after a normal BM I feel like my abdominal sides cramp and hurt. Colonoscopy normal. Been SIBO free for a year. Am wondering why?

Sometimes after a normal BM I feel like my abdominal sides cramp and hurt. Colonoscopy normal. Been SIBO free for a year. Am wondering why?

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

Two days posted colonoscopy still gassy and having pain cramps in lower abdomen not severe also no bm yet tried to go yesterday mucus with  tan blood?

Colonoscopy.: it is not unusual to have some gassiness and to not yet have had a bowel movement on the second day after a colonoscopy. However, it is not normal to have any bleeding afterwards. If you are having bleeding, you should call the doctor who did your colonoscopy to discuss it. Good luck. ...Read more

I am a 47 yr old female. I have severe abdominal bloating, (colonoscopy showed nothing), pelvic cramps, no menstrual periods for 3 months, and backac?

I am a 47 yr old female. I have severe abdominal bloating, (colonoscopy showed nothing), pelvic cramps, no menstrual periods for 3 months, and  backac?

Several things: At 47 you are in the perimenopause and skipping periods is common. It may well be that the skipped periods aren't related to your backache , bloating,and pelvic cramping. A normal colonoscopy doesn't rule out irritable bowel syndrome which can cause these symptoms. Talk to your PCP, GYN, or the doctor who did your colonoscopy about this. ...Read more
