Supposedly this is very quick, but not abnormal. He did a fecal blood test in his office, also negative. I had an incident about 1 1/2 years ago where I had bloody diarrhea and vomiting after a long bike ride. My doctor thinks it was due to eating too much (McDonald's hamburgers) during the ride. My doctor thinks I have irritable bowel syndrome. I am still bloated almost all the time. It seems to get worse after I eat, but also sometimes before when I am hungry.
Sometimes systemic reactions -- flu-like symptoms (extreme fatigue, pain, intestinal stress). It feels like my blood has poison in it (strange, but that is best way I can describe it). This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/234973'>Chronic and Constant Distention, Beyond Bloating!</a>.
Have gained weight cannot lose it dr said I have acid reflux.
The issue or bacteria you are referring to is H-Pylori, most people have this bacteria in the stomache for years and not know it, it can be detected either by stool sample or Endoscopy tissue sample, it causes the same symptoms you have, although so does other problems like IBS and Gallblatter issues, have you taken any Anti-Biotics within the last 6 months or prior to symptoms had a colonoscopy, because when you have H-Pylori bacteria, and you go on anti-biotics, the anti-biotic kills all the b

Diverticulitis (bloating, diarrhea) Crohn's disease (usually start in young adults...) Polyp, or cancer...well, not impossible in your age, but 50+ is a common age for colorectal cancer.
Following 5 doctor visits and one ultra sound and four c-scans, and three sets of blood tests -- I find myself in nearly the same place I was in 9 months ago. Bloating. Unusual, occasionally irregular or dry, bowel movements. A blockage in the small intestine showed up on the first c-scan, and loops in the colon.
I have no pain other than bloating and have not lost any weight. I noticed blood in my stool one time. My GI believes that to be a result of hemorrhoids that came about due to the frequent bowl movements. I am only 27. I have had every test possible, and my GI has found nothing. Tests I have had include, Colonoscopy, Upper Endoscopy, Capsule Endoscopy, CT Scan, Stool samples, blood tests for food allergies, and a HIDA scan.
This can be detected by a simple blood test. Now, you follow some good lifestyle measures for the bloating to decrease. Eat food rich in plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, avoid spicy and fatty food, avoid smoking and eliminate alcohol. Do not consume caffeinated beverages. Practice good relaxation techniques like yoga and meditation. Exercise regularly. Go for long relaxed walks. Maintain a food diary and try to identify those foods which are likely to produce bloating and avoid them.
Irritable bowel syndrome or malabsorption can lead to changes in stool color. To exclude more serious lower GI causes, you can consider a colonoscopy to evaluate for inflammatory bowel disease or colitis. Stool studies can be done to evaluate for malabsorption. You can also consider blood tests to exclude celiac disease. If the tests continue to be negative, irritable bowel syndrome can indeed be considered.
I am noticing, for the last three days, blood coming along with stools( not in insignificant quantities) .The colour of the blood is light red and thin,but the stool is normal in colour and size and shape.There is no pain in the whole process.A week back, just before I had this pain I had a difficult bowel movement one day because of outside food,as I was travelling.But previous to that the stool was was absolutely normal.
I am a 38 year old male. I have noticed that there was blood in my stool. Bright red blood. It has happened before but it stopped after 2 days. I thought that it was hemmroids or an anal fissure. I just noticed it again. I feel great and I have been told that both of the above conditions can be painful. I don't feel any discomfort and my stool is normal. Can it still be hemmroids or anal fissures?
I'm in the process of putting together a page on the parasite Blastocystis hominis which is a cause of blood in stool...and frequently not found by stool testing. so please check back in a few days.

hoping this is the cause of some weight loss. my biggest scare is seeing blood in my stool. its very light and very little but ive looked through it (with gloves) and find a hint of red in stool. also slight pain in front lobes of hip. i also have abdominal pains, back pains and bloating. my dad has ibs, his dad had ibs and a cousin of mine also does. i go to the specialists tomorrow but just looking for a bit of hope on here.
The symptoms i am NOT experience are nausea, vomiting, diarhea (although the last two stools i have had have been softer), weakness or fatigue, weight loss or weight gain no blood in my stool and no fever. Just the bloated full feeling and sometimes acidic feeling and the white pieces in my stool. Sometimes there are more white objects sometimes less, sometimes more faded. My stool is in itself not white, just pieces of things in it.
I'm an 18 year old male and have just had a spurt of blood and mucus in my stool. Over the past 3 days my stool has gotten thinner and softer (no diarhhea) until today when I found a fair amount of musus (To compare I'd say just about the same amount of musus when you blow your nose while youre quite sick - a tissue full) and bright red thin strips of blood contained in the musus. There was only enough blood to be barely visable but it was there.
A floating stool may be a symptom of a more serious problem but more than likely it is because you are eating too many fatty foods in your diet. Increased levels of nutrients in the stool are supplied to the normal bacteria that live in the gut, which in turn produce more gas. This results in more gas-rich stools that float. Lower the fat content of your food and should result in stool that sinks. I recommend the ultrasound right away.
Any possibility of blood in the stool needs to be followed up with a lower endoscopy - either a flexible sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy. Although colon cancer is uncommon in your age group, it still is possible and needs to be ruled out. Pale stools can be indicative of biliary tree blockage. Blood tests to evaluate the liver enzymes, as well as radiology studies like an abdominal ultrasound or MRCP can be done to further evaluate this.
Do you think it could be a food poisoning with parasites? Blood and mucus may appear in the stool. Bloating and lose stools are typical. Dx is with stool test for "ova and parasites". If those reds are not blood, they may be parts of undigested food. Other common causes of bloating are - fructose malabsorption http://www.medhelp.org/user_journals/show/21247?
But she continues to have pain, bloating and blood and mucus in her stool. Shes losing weight because she bloats painfully as soon as she eats something. No one has a clue. Anyone out there have any thoughts. Its so hard to watch her suffer every day and not be able to help.
In October of 2009 I had diarrhea and noticed a small amount of bright red blood in the toilet along with the lose stools. Eight months later in June of 2010 I noticed small traces of bright red blood in the toilet again. I felt bloated for a couple weeks and went to the doctor. They said if I noticed blood again to come back to schedule a colonoscopy. The bloating went away at the start of July.
A short time later I went to the bathroom a second time and there was nothing but the blood and some kind of mucusy material. While I know the blood in my stool is not a healthy sign, how long should there be blood present before I should be worried? My family has a history of IBD (inflamatory bowel disease) and I have had IBS off and on for years, but otherwise there is no family history of any types of cancer or other explanations.
