My girlfriend has stomach pain and blood in stool. Can this be caused by not eating and drinking alcohol?

Yes: Alcohol intake can cause bleeding in the intestine through multiple mechanisms. Alcohol is a poison and never did anybody any good. Your girl friend would be better served by not drinking. 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. 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. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Gastrointestinal Bleeding (Definition)

A long tube runs from the mouth to the anus. It includes, in order, the mouth, throat, esophagus, stomach, small intestine (duodenum, jejunum, ileus), caecum, the ascending, transverse, descending, and sigmoid colon (or large intestine) and the rectum. The space inside that tube , the lumen, is considered to be outside of the body. When we bleed into that space ...Read more

What is the cause of black stool and blood in stool with constant stomach pain 35 year old male

Ulcers: Bright red blood in the stool is from hemorrhoids. Black stool is digested blood from stomach ulcers. These can be treated with Prilosec and suppositories. Get tested for h.Pylori. You're not too far gone to recover, but this is going to take some work. Hopefully, your fp can discover the cause of your bleeding (alcohol?), diagnose and treat properly, so that you can get to feeling better soon! ...Read more

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 ?

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 ...Read more

I was told that I have atelectasis in both lungs.  I also have stomach pain, diarrhea and blood in stools be  related.  Could one cause the other?

No: Atelectasis is a benign collapse of segments of your lungs that can be resolved with deep breathing and use of an incentive spirometer..

You should see your doctor and have blood and stool studies to find the cause. ...Read more

Today had small amount of bright red blood in stool and when wiping. slight constipation and pain when passing stool. no stomach pain or fever. hemor?

Fissure, hemorrhoid: At your age this sounds like an anal fissure which is a tear of the lining of the outlet. Hemorrhoids rarely cause real pain unless one gets a blood clot which would be a hard lump at outlet and hurt all the time not just with BM. Sit in warm water, increase fluid intake and take fiber/stool softener and should improve within next several days. ...Read more
