User: I notice red colored semi solid particleS within my stool, they are not continous i see it at different places of my stool, i don't see this always,
but i see only certain times, currently from the past week i see it, i see this over past few years(3 years approx).

sometimes i feel pain in my abdomen for short time and it disappears automatically,
and sometimes i feel my stomach is bloated, even this disappears automatically.

i feel very uncomfortable when i wear pant or belt which is very tight at my abdomen.

I weigh around 60 Kgs, and am not able to gain weight over many years.

I also pass stool twice or once a day , which is semi solid.

currently i am not taking any medications.
My apetite is good.

I consulted some of the local doctors ,
they tested by pressing my abdomen to see if i feel
any pain, they said i am normal.

some said it could be IBS.

they also asked me to do blood in stool test, but, the result was no blood in stool,
this could be because as i stated above, i don't see it always in my stool.

Because of these symptoms,i follow certain best practises:
I don't eat spicy food, i do yoga daily for one hour daily early morning.

Could you please let me know why i face such symptoms?
how to confirm if have some health issue?
how to recover from this?

Thanks in advance.
