I am from Mumbai , India . I have been suffering from IBS for last 12 yrs . Recently I have started travelling to Internation places like : Kazakisthan , Singapore , Kualalampur .
I was fine till 29th Dec ' 07 and used to take Isabgul(Plantago ovata Forak) . However on 30th Dec evening in Office I felt a Medim Stomach Cramp and rushed to defect . First one was Solid / Semi Solid and the Second One was Clear Loose but the pain or Cramp was gone .
Next Episode on 13th Jan '08 . Early morning around 8 am Same episode happned .
In both the cases No Blood was visible
No medicines taken
Went to Kualalampur on 16th Night
17th Night I had a urge to defect but without any cramping . This Time First was Semi Solid and there was a drop of fresh blood and second one is watery .
I then took 2 Caps of Cifran CT for 4 Days
Returned to India and went for a Check up
The doctor prescribed me : Nitarid 500 for 3 days (Twice / Day)
Econorm (2 sacts / day for 6 days)
On Follow Up I am advised to have Entaropan Caps 2 / day for 10 days
Currently I am Fine .
But though the Start day and till now I am very tensed and though my Doc is saying nothing Major but still do u think that this could be Ulcerative Colitis .
I did not have Fever / Joit Aches etc .
However since I am in IT Profesion I do suffer from Cervical Loss of Lordosys and I am always underweight .
Almost all of the symptoms except bleeding points towards IBS only.
Bleeding usually donot occur in IBS.
Since you say it is a drop of fresh blood, there are possibilities that you might be having hemorrhoids ( piles).
A proctoscopy will help in diagnosing hemorrhoids.
But for ruling out UC, you need to undergo a complete colonoscopy.
Discuss with your gastro regarding this.
