Hi all, this is my first time ever posting something and decided to try it out after finding out of this site from looking up my symptoms on the internet for a while.
I am 19 years old, I've been having "stomach issues" for quite over a year now. I've noticed that it's at it's worse in the morning, I end up sitting in the bathroom for roughly an hour at a time (probably go 2 or 3 times). For the most part I am only actively going to the bathroom for maybe 10-20 minutes and the rest is the time it's just the feeling that I have to keep going. It's usually a loose stool, occasionally diarrhea but not often.
Today has been different though, I've been to the bathroom twice already since 7am (it's 8:20 now) and it started off as a solid BM but now it's been diarreah along with what appears to be the salad I ate last night?
For most of my BM there appears to be a little bit of blood in my stool (not a lot but like a couple dots) and then when I wipe. I also experience bloating
Sorry if this is graphic, but I've been to the doctor and they haven't done anything for me. I've gotten an ultrasound and it came back normal.
I have not been diagnosed with IBS, or anything really, but I just wanted to see if anyone has any insight. Thank you!
