PLEASE HELP! I am a 30 yr old male and have always been very active and healthy untill 6 months ago. I have chronic diarrhea, bloody stools, mucus stools, terrible abdominal pain and cramping, I have been for all the tests and scans but nothing is showing up so the Drs have said nothing is wrong with me. I am in so much pain and discomfort now. I have tried imoduim, loperamide, the drs put me on a course of steroids ( i am off now), I have tried cutting out green food, I have been eating very plain food (limiting spices, salt, sugar) I am now trying to cut out gluten and wheat but now I am left with very few choices of what I can eat... I thought it may be IBS but the Drs can't confirm what i have as my symtoms are chronic. No medicine is helping. What can I do/ take and what could be the cause of all of this?
Have you been referred for a sigmoidoscopy? (medical camera in the anal passage). I would have said you might have IBS. If Doctors have supposedly done all the tests, then something should have been found, these things don't happen for nothing.
Hi I've had a creamy discharge for about 18 months now but in the last two days it has been a bloody browny colour and when I go to the toilet and wipe on the tissue its in a big Black/brown bloody blob I'm really worried its serious :(
hi i came on this website to ask about the same thing! I have been looking at other websites and they say that it is a sign that your period is starting and nothing serious. Abie (im 14) xx
I have suffered with constipation for quite some time now. My stools are almost always hard and difficult to pass, and I tend to poo three or less times a week. I have recently become aware that before I need to relieve myself I can feel the stools through the back of my vaginal wall? Applying a gentle (painless) pressure to this helps me a lot in passing stools. Unfortunately because of my busy schedule at the moment I cannot go to the doctors for around another month, but I still want to try and solve this problem. Is there any way I can without being prescribed anything?
Hi. I have exactly the same problem and am searching this site to see if its normal or not as Id hate to go to the drs only to be told its normal!! Susanne
Hi have the same problem ,can anyone help ?.i eat quite healthy I've tried high fibre diets and still nothing ,I can drink orange juice by the carton and eat fruit and I'm still lucky to go to the toilet twice a week ,feel very bloated .
I have what I thought was a spot on my inner thigh right where my labia majora meets the leg. The spot burst and bloody pus drains out. So I cover it up with a hydrocolloid plaster. The hole where the ups was draining out got bigger and deeper every time in change the dressing and more bloody pus drains out. It has been a few days already now. It is sort when I touch it, and I seemed like it a staph aureus infection. What shall I do?

would it was the cluster warts, when they burst could there be a bloody/watery discharge? do genital wart burst? I thought genital warts where hard with a root, so can they be large and soft a when burst expel a bloody discharge?????
im pretty sure that warts dont burst. i think herpes (the other strain) can. have you been to see a doctor to check what, exactly you have?
i suffered from c-dificile a year last september. i was hospitalized but no cause could be determined. since then i have found that when i need to go it somtimes comes on with no warning. if i try to hold it in my stools get very runny. i have also noticed that my stools are a lot more pungent. could i have done any long term damage?
I too had C-Diff, I got it in hospital after an operation for bowel cancer, and I have exactly the same symptoms. I was told that it was caused by the anti-biotics that were used after my op. the bad bacteria present in everyone's gut literally thrive on these anti- B's. I was given stronger anti-biotics to kill the bad bacteria. I did get better but due to the C-Diff being ever present in the gut. I do get bouts of serious diarrhoea about twice a week. So I have resolved myself that I have to live with it

Hi Julie, don't be worried but definitely go and see your GP. Tell them all of your symptoms and make sure they have a good look around there too (I know it's embarrassing, but it's better than guesswork)! Just think that little bit of embarrassing could help you find out what's going on and how to treat it!
Hello, im 15years old and i've noticed a sudden change in my stools... Two days ago I vomited about three times in the morning.. After that I sat on the toilet to empty my bowels, a yellow liquid has seemed to replace my stools, its an ongoing problem since April 15th 2014, should I get this checked out or not, and what can I do?
This was my situation when I was 13 and after several months of the doctors giving the wrong answers from the FLU to upset stomach the vomitting turned into acid and was burning my throat...long story short have the doctor check your appendix. waited to long for me and almost killed me.it can be poison to the body when it burst. not to scare you but go now!
