Hello, I am a 21 yr old female. My problems started about 6 months ago. About 3 months ago I was diagnosed with ibs. I had diahhrea for 3 weeks straight; I also had the cramping, nausea, gas, and mucus. I was told by my doctor to drink more water, eat better, exercise, and take fibercon.
Now my bm are about every 3 days. They are very painful, almost a burning or stinging that turns into a dull ache/dull pain throughout the rest of the day, and I have to strain when I have a bm. I have also been having blood on the outside of the stool, toilet paper and in the toilet bowl. It is not a large amount of blood and goes away after I wipe. If I have a bm in the morning and it causes pain then even if I urinate later on that day, I still feel the sting on my bottom. I'm not sure if these two things are related. I'm not sure what is going on here.
If someone could respond and give me some answers/more questions, that would be much appreciated.
