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. ...Read more

Been about 10yrs of ab. Pain w/bloating and burping. Still can't swallow w/out air going down, even with only mucus. Is it mechanical? Nerve system?

Swallowing problems: Give a good history to your Dr and let team examine.

Describe in great detail what happens and then ask them what the problem is and what you should do about it. I note daytime sleepiness and would ask about testing for obstructive sleep apnea. ...Read more

Hello! I have this bowel problem that makes me feel very anxious. What scares me is the fact that sometimes my bowels look thin and flat type 5 and sometimes I also noticed mucus in it, no blood, no weight loss, no bloating and 1-3 bowels a day?

Hello! I have this bowel problem that makes me feel very anxious. What scares me is the fact that sometimes my bowels look thin and flat type 5 and sometimes I also noticed mucus in it, no blood, no weight loss, no bloating and 1-3 bowels a day?

Doctor can evaluate: Bowel symptoms, especially worrisome ones, should be evaluated by a primary care doctor and a G.I. Doctor. If the symptoms aren't explained by some simple, temporary illness, the doctors may need to look inside the colon to see what is going on. If a colonoscopy is needed, and it turns out to be normal, it is reassuring. ...Read more
