I was diagnosed with IBS a couple of years ago and after being on mebeverine for about 1 1/2 years I have had no relief of symptoms. A few months ago I noticed blood mixed into my stools so went to see my GP who told me it is normal in people with IBS to get some bleeding because of muscle spasms- I also saw another GP for peace of mind who also said this was normal as it stopped after a few days.
It has now started again but for over a month now and I am undergoing different treatments at the moment. I have been checked for haemorrhoids and fissures (and I have none) as well as inflammatory markers and coeliac disease which have all come back normal. I'm a bit worried as to what might be the issue, as I am only 19 years old and have been told it won't be anything sinister- but I am still in daily pain and am passing blood every time I go to the toilet!
I have also come across a small hard lump in my lower left abdomen (which I think is probably just constipation) but the Doctor didn't seem to pick up on it so I assume it's fine!
Any thoughts on what I could do to ease the pain or what could be the issue?
Thanks and sorry for the long post!
