Runny stool, some blood, and stomach ache/pain

My boyfriend is 23 years old and 6' 4" and around 190-200 pounds and he has beeing having runny stool for about a month now. He says the blood in the stool isnt much at all, but that still worrys me.He has has stool test that came back normal, blood test that came back normal. He doctor doesnt seem to know. His doctor gave me a couple different medicines that really hasnt helped. Should he go to a different one?

Does anyone have any suggestions? Please help us out, please!

Re: Runny stool, some blood, and stomach ache/pain

I'd go back to the first doctor and tell him the meds aren't working - if he seems stumped ask for a referral to a different doc or specialist.

A small amount of bright red blood can be from something simple like irritation from the diarrhea.

This can be a serious problem not to scare you but he should have a full colonoctopy to rule out any cancer or polyps....he may have an ulcer also..or it just may be an irritation to his digestive system an infection or sorts....but to be certain i think he should have those tests.

Re: Runny stool, some blood, and stomach ache/pain

Jokermistique . . . please call your nearest Crisis Counseling Center as soon as possible. The "local place" you went for help should not have let you just go like that and told you to come back.

There is real help out there for people regardless of insurance and they should be able to get you to it.

Please keep us advised on how you are doing.

Re: Runny stool, some blood, and stomach ache/pain

Hello, again, Jokermistique . . . do you have anyone that you could get to come over and stay with you? Someone like a friend or relative that will understand how fragile you are feeling and help you out by talking or even locating someone who could help you?

I am sure the State would cooperate with a person making contact from a Crisis Counseling center. Check your telephone book to see if you can find someone to call and talk to. The listings for the ones in our area are in the yellow pages under "Crisis Intervention Services", so yours would most likely be listed that way, too.

I will keep checking back. Hang in there and let me know what you can find out.

*Hugs*

Lindaru
