I am hoping that someone can help me figure out what is wrong with me. I just started my senior year in high school this year and i have an issue. Every morning i wake up and i poop. but once i get to my first class i have to poop again, and if i dont i'll get extreme nausea and want to throw up. This leads to me pooping at school 1-3 times within 5 hours. When ever i am pooping its not in large quantities, but i feel like i am done, and when i am done / in progress my lower right side of my stomach feels like i have a strained muscle. The main part i am concerned about is the nausea, i only eat a small healthy bar before school because i hate eating the morning, and sometimes ill take tums but nothing works, i just feel sick to my stomach like i could just throw up at any point.
Welcome to the boards! I do hope you find help and support here. You didn't mention how long this has been going on. If it has been happening awhile, like for months, I would see a gastroenterologist. The one thing in your story that would need checked out is the right side pain with BMs, which can be a sign of Crohn's, an inflammatory bowel disorder. That can cause frequent stools and nausea. If this has been just since you started school, could anxiety/stress be a factor? Just a question to consider. Otherwise, a stool sample could be checked for infection. Any possible exposure to Giardia, a parasite? Are you having diarrhea? Any additional history would be helpful.

This has been going on for about a week now, but the strained pain has been about a month. I dont have anxiety or stress with school because i am very comfortable at school and i like all my teachers and enjoy my classes. I am pretty sure its not a infection because i havent had exposure to Giardia. Somtimes it is diarrhea.
Another thing is that i do have blood when i wipe my butt, it could be from dry skin but i dont know
