GI problems

I have no idea what could be causing these symptoms for the past month: constipation, bloating, diarrhea from laxative, blood coming out of rectum, cramping, pain around the area of sigmoid colon, descending colon, lower abdomen.

there could be loads of different reasons for the above and i am sure all treatable but i would think if u have not been a trip to your doc would be in order.
dont sit at home and suffer ,,it would be pointless in guessing at reasons here until u get a proper diagnosis

let us know ok
take care

It could be you are having an allergic reaction to either dairy or gluten.  Your symptoms sure go along with that type of problem.   The one sure way to find out is to eliminate dairy and all wheat products from your diet.  This is not easy but it can be done  I am allergic to both items and I have figured out what I can eat and never go hungry.

If you are indeed lactose or gluten intollerant it should take about a week for you to find out.  Good luck and keep me posted.....I've been down this road.
