I am female, 46 yrs old and am white. I have had problems with bowle movements as far back as I can remember. I do not go on a regular bases, in fact it is common for me not to go for a couple of weeks. I bounce between loose, running stools, to large and hard to pass. I never think of going to the bathroom daily, I never get the urge. After my children, I have hemmroids and cannot sit long or push to much as they will act up. They have had to "lance" them before. Lucky me, they are in and out. Back in 1986, I started cramping serverly, started passing hard stools to loose waterey. I laid down for awhile and the cramping started up again, went to the bathroom and started passing large blood clots. This continued for about an hour, dark, mucus, blood clots. I went to the hospital as I was out of town. They received a sample and said I needed to my doc at home. I did so. The Doc did a scope, she saw a few ? said their was nothing to worry about and had me taking fiber, which did nothing, except bloat me.
Life goes on. I do not pass stool, or at the most a little bit until the following happens:
It is usally during the night, say 1 to 2 am. I wake with the worst cramping, I can not describe, yet if your a women, I'd swear I'm delivering a baby. My stomach extends as though I am eight months pregnant, I sweat from every pore, the pain is so bad I have to let out a scream every now and then. I sit on the toilet, knees up to my face hoping it will be over soon. I then have to lay on the bathroom floor and I feel dizzy and nausues. When the time comes, I jump on the seat. This continues for up to an hour. The cramping lessens, then recycles though now it is brown watery. Two or so hours later its done until another couple of months and I repeat it all over again. Last Night the above routine started, yet, now with the cramping, I am only passing dark, mucus blood clots. I feel weak and drained, which is "normal" after these nights, yet I also feel discomfort in my lower right side. The time between cramping is widening, yet when I feel I need to go again, it is blood clots only. My temp is 96.4. I always run low, normally 97.4. Please advice me as I do not want to continue this patteren.
