Hi megamax, I think its great that you are going to get it checked out. GI pain is too tricky because it is so common for the pain to migrate. The pain might be in one area but the problem may be in another. Ribbon like stools can also be caused by a lot of different things from hemmroids to Crohn's disease. I would make a list of all your symptoms from now until your appt in case you forget when you get to the office. If your like me, you get "white coat" amnesia.
