Hi, I am a 32 year old woman mother of two, and I am very concerned because the past month I have been having symptoms that are unusual. At the start of all of my problems I was just passing white mucous in my stool, the stools tended to be skinnier than normal, with a white mucous coating covering the stool. I called my Dr and asked if her I should be seen once I noticed that I had some presence of blood too. She said to come in and she treated me for diverticulitis, and also did a stool sample to check for e coli, and other infectious type strains, It all came back ok, so she told me to continue with the Cipro. So I did, yet the Cipro made me seem to feel worse, I felt weak, nausious, and the bleeding seemed like it was more and more, to the point where it was coming out in small clots. I again called the dr and said that the Cipro was not helping. I also had a severe attack in my lower abdominal area that sent me to my knees. I was contracting as if I was having a baby. The pains were comparable to hard labor. They made me sweat, cry, etc. That pain lasted for about 2 hours, with 5 min intervals. Also I was rushing to the toliet where I was having very loose stool, close to diarea (diarrhea).
The next day my Dr sent me to get a CT scan, the results came back ok. Yet I was still having abdominal irratibilty and bllod clots and mucous. I am so confused as to what could be wrong with me. I also had blood work done to check me for anemia, and to check my thryroid and electrolytes. Those results also came back ok. Something is wrong, but I just cannot figure it out. I have actually taken a picture to show what the clots look like that have been coming out of me. Also sometimes I have a normal bowel movement, then other times I will get an extreme urge to have a bowel movement and all that comes out are these blood clots that also have some mucous in them. I atleast pass on average about 3 blood clots per day.
In the past since my late teen years I have had episodes of what they call Irritable Bowel Syndrome. The attacks were always painful like I explained above. They would happen maybe a few times a year, if that. But it has always been a reoccuring problem. I am a healthy woman, I excerise daily, dont smoke, and occasionally drink. If you have any help or any advice that you could give I would appreciate! I am scared......
You need to ask your doc to schedule a colonoscopy despite the fact that you had a CT scan. The doc needs to get a close-up look at what is going on at the lining of your colon. Please call tomorrow and ask to have him set one up.
i am looking at the computer now to find out what the hell is happening to me and i come up on your post....thank god that i am not the only one with these issues....although that relieves me i am still extremely scared about what it could be....i have an appointment on Tuesday and will also post on what i found out.....hope you all find questions and god bless
