What do you think the doc will suggest next?

hi,
I had a sigmoidoscopy a couple of days ago and it was all clear my symptoms are:
darkish red blood and mucus in stools stomach pain from under ribs down to low abdomen dizziness and fatigue. Also i have bouts of collapsing usually every couple of months its starts off with extreme stomach pain which travels round to my mid back then my legs go weak and i can't stand also get a cold sweat.
I'm seeing a specialist in two months as i didn't see a doctor before i went in for my sigmoidoscopy. What do you think the doc will suggest next? im confused how sigmoidscopy didnt show anything.
I'm 26 female.
thank you

You need a colonoscopy because it goes all the way across the transverse colon and down.the right side where it starts. Insist upon it. Good Luck I hope nothing is wrong !
