I have had persistent abdominal pain over the past year. I have felt tired, abnormal/regular bowels and just a general feeling of being unwell. I have been to the doctor a few times where I have explained my symptoms which include:
1. Abdominal pain (non specific)
3. Constant urge for bowel movement
4. Persistent rectal bleeding (bright red) with most bowel movements which before it was rabbit pellets like and now it's mostly diarrhea with blood - There is also a day when I felt like passing wind but felt a warm trickle down my thighs and my trousers were all soaked with blood - this was just a one off but there was a lot of blood.
The doctor has ordered full blood count, urine and stool sample tests which have all previously come back clear however was told I was low in red blood cells (anemic) and vitamin D which I am currently taking supplements for. I have just been to the doctor again today and have been told that the last stool sample shows some inflammation and I have been referred to the hospital where they will insert a camera down through mouth and also check my large bowel (colonoscopy i think).
I have been having a really difficult time and did not enjoy my Christmas/New Year holidays at all and lately have had one or 2 accidents and this is making it even more difficult at work.
Has anyone had any similar symptoms before and what is likely to cause inflammation?
