I have a niggling pain in the upper abdomen for about 4 weeks and I also have a lot of mucus in my stools and now I'm starting to worry a little ?

Get seen.: The pain has persisted for 4 weeks and not gone away, so you need to get seen. Hard to say what this could be without much more information. Clearly, it is time to be examined in person. Get checked this week. In the meantime, avoid alcohol, caffeine, spicy foods, greasy foods, and recreational drugs, if you take them. ...Read more

Recovery process: The symptoms may be part of the recovery process from the gastritis. For information on green stools, you may consult this site: http://www.mayoclinic.org/symptoms/green-stool/basics/definition/SYM-20050708 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.

See your doc!: No one can make a diagnosis via computer, but you have several very worrisome symptoms. Obviously this could be cancer, but sometimes diverticulitis or an inflammatory condition presents this way. It needs to be checked out so that you are on the way to feeling better. ...Read more

Lots of possibilitie: These symptoms sound like irritable bowel but other possibilities exist such as gallbladder disease. A daily fiber supplement or probiotic may be helpful. Cramping with running is usually muscular but can be caused by shunting of blood away from the gut into the muscles. You should discuss your symptoms further with your doctor. ...Read more

I've an almost constant urge to pass stools. Usually a very small amount loose or soft stools, or nothing at all is passed. I also get terrible pain in my upper abdomen after eating anything. Ibs?

I've an almost constant urge to pass stools. Usually a very small amount loose or soft stools, or nothing at all is passed. I also get terrible pain in my upper abdomen after eating anything. Ibs?

IBS: The constant urge school sounds like ibs. The pain in your upper abdomen could be ibs, but i would also wonder if it represents something along the of gastritis or an ulcer. Other possibilities are ulcerative colitis or crohn's disease but you are not passing any blood or mucus so i doubt that the latter two are the case. Please get checked for upper abdominal symptomatology as well. Best wishes. ...Read more
