I'm a 19 year old female and it has recently been suggested to me that I am suffering from IBS. I often get stomach cramps, bloating, gas, etc. and every now then diaahrea/constipation. I had a colonscopy last December that came out clear & fine. Anyway, this morning I kept on having to have bowel movements (not diahreaa) (sorry if this is TMI) and besides being annoying and having a little bit of a stomach ache it was fine. I only ate a couple pretzels for lunch so as not to aggravate it and took my hyomax and also some Immodium because I had a big presentation today and didn't want to have to run out in the middle of it. So about
a half hour later I had one tiny bowel movement with some blood in it.
Now I have had one incidence several years ago where I was hospitalied for blood in my stool but at that time i felt EXTREMELY sick and it was A LOT and today i feel pretty much fine besides the usual cramping and the weird feeling I always get from Immodium. I also had blood in the stole about a month or two ago (just one incidence) and ended up feeling fine and not going to the doctor.
Can anybody please give me their best guess as to why this is happening? I'm guessing just the strain of having bowel movements ALL morning and I'm trying not to worry about it too much because of my normal colonscopy. What do you guys think?
