almost 24 hours ago i started having really sharp short abdominal pain and the first time i had the urge to go to the bathroom and it was direaha then after that i went to sleep then when i awoke i started having the abdominal pains again and no direaha, when i try to go its only blood and mucus coming from the rectum area and just a dime sized amount each time, the abdominal pain comes and goes about 6 times every hour and just wont go away its been going on for about 23 hours now and there is no sign of feces in the blood and mucus except maybe a pin sized dot..please give me some kind of idea of what it could be
Abdominal pain lasting more than a few hours should be evaluated by a doctor. This could be a bad stomach/ intestinal virus, or it could be more serious like infection. Please see your doctor as soon as possible. In the meantime, drink plenty of fluids and stick with a bland diet to help your stomach and intestines settle. These symptoms are serious and really need to be addressed by your doctor. Good luck and hope you feel better soon.
i went to the er and they checked my blood cell count or something like that and everything was ok they sai it was probably a virus but i still think they could have done an ultra sound or something but ii guess they wont unless i have insurence..but ty!
The blood cell count will show them if you have an infection (your white blood cell count would be elevated if there is an infection) and can also tell them if you are anemic (which can happen with blood loss). Continue the bland diet and give yourself another couple of days. Make sure that you stay hydrated (drink fluids but avoid sugary sports drinks which can make the diarhea worse). If this persists for more than a few days, you should be re-evaluated. Good luck.
