Started having flu like symptoms along with diarrhea (small amounts) 2 days ago. Chills and aches went away, but now I have blood tinged mucus every time I go to the bathroom. And after I eat my stomach makes noise as though I will have diarrhea. Could this just be some sort of GI bug or maybe a hemmorhoid issue?
I can confirm the exact cause only after a complete medical history and clinical examination. Many conditions can cause mucus with blood in stools like ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, haemorrhoids, anal fissures, bacterial infection and intestinal blockage etc.The exact cause needs to be determined before initiating treatment. Treatment will depend on diagnosis of the underlying condition. It may include antibiotics if there is a bacterial infection, as well as medication, lifestyle or diet change if there is an underlying bowel condition .Consult a doctor.
Take care and kind regards!
