I went from having weeeks of really bad D to now for the last 2 or 3 days I have been really constipated and having more stomach cramps. I still have the urgency like D but nothing comes out but what looks like bloody tissue. Do you think I should try stool softeners or could there be a bigger problem? Thanks!
diagnosed 1 1/2 years ago and still trying to figure it out!

I think you might want to talk to the doctor first before you take the stool softners. The bloody tissue is concerning, at least to me. Good luck and keep us posted.
