If I eat a lot of food, I tend to get diarrhea; probably about once a month. Also, I notice that I have spasms in my stomach from time to time. The blood in the stool worries me since it is obviously not normal!
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
You should be examined by a gastroenterologist as soon as possible because of the blood in your stool.any changes in bowel habits that last more than two weeks should be investigated by a doctor soon. You may have to have a rectal exam by the doctor,fecal occult test,colonoscopy, bowel habit history.
