So, I'm so unbelievably tired today and achey with a pain in my uppper left abdomen (not the lower left although I have a little pain down there). I felt especially tired after having a BM this morning but I didn't see any blood in it. I saw something that looked black, which I've seen in the past - not sure if this is dried blood or something similar. The BM was mostly normal/formed except for whatever came out at the end. I had another one a few hours later that was totally formed. I have been getting abdominal cramps after I eat the past few days. I just had toast and even that gave me cramping.
Is it normal to get so tired after a BM even when you don't appear to be bleeding? I'm going to my GP tomorrow to see if I have a bladder infection as my lower back has been killing me on and off. Hoping this isn't the start of a flare-up again. I'm so tired I feel like I can barely keep my head up :(
