Blood and Mucus in Stool for past 6-8 weeks.

Hello,

Every 18-36 months I tend to get mucus (mainly in the morning) and blood in my stools. My stools are not very consistent too.

The last time this occurred in April 2015, I went to the GP's and they done a stool test, which did not show anything (I am not sure what it could show?).

Over the past 6 weeks, this condition has came back. I am going to the toilet 3/4 times per day and a lot of blood and mucus is being passed.

Today, I had a sore stomach and was on toilet 5/6 times, I passed a lot of normal stools (not firm though). It looks like it is getting better...

Do I need to go to the GP and get this investigated?

What could it be and how can I counteract it?

Thanks,

Gareth.

What is your age?

Have you ever had a colonoscopy?

I would see a Gastroenterologist rather than a GP.

Best of luck to you.
