We need help don't know what to do ?

My name is misty and my boyfriend has some problems with his stomach we believe. He always has a upset stomach, Never hungry, always has gas, stomach is always bubbling and making noises. Evert time he eats it never fails he will have to take a BM about 30 minutes after eating. He has a BM about 1x the most he does is 3x a day. That is where he is at now 3x. He also has Blood in the BM not on it in it. When he goes and takes a BM it is soft never hard sometimes it is diarrhea. That has been going on since he was in the Marines 12 yrs ago. Nothing has changed or gotten worse. There has been more symptoms happening. Sometimes he coughs up blood. He has been diagnosed with depression and anxiety as well on top of everything that he has. I have been with him for about 6 1/2 years and at first I didn't understand what was going on with him and then I started to go back to school for a MA. He started asking all these questions to ask my professors. They all told me to tell him to go see the doctor but you are talking to an Ex- Marine. That is like talking to a wall. Now he is tired of being in the restroom all the time so he is asking question . So if you can answer this we will appreciate.

Re: We need help don't know what to do ?

You don't say how old he is, but with 12 years in the Marines, we know he isn't a kid. See a doctor is the best advice and if he has a PCP, I would suggest he see him asap and from there, ask his doctor to refer him to a good GI doctor. He needs to have a colonoscopy to find out what's going on in there. With the blood in the stool, I wouldn't wait, tell him to call today for an appointment!!
