This is a rather embarrassing question, but I have been having a very foul smelling (like a strong sewer smell), bloody diarrhea for about 4 days. I have these instances approximately 3 times a day. I have IBS, but have never experienced these symptoms before. This is most likely not related, but I have a bad cough that started around the same time. I have not been exposed to anyone who's traveled to a third world country, nor have I drank unclean water. I did start a new job working with low income families about 2 wks ago, but that is the only change in my lifestyle. I'm a 5'10" female, 41 years old. I'm approximately 40-50 lbs. overweight.
