Brief Answer: Partial bowels obstruction. Detailed Answer: Hello! Thank you for the query. Such symptoms can be caused by partial bowels obstruction due to inflammatory bowels disease or colon cancer. This two issues need to be ruled out at first. Especially if you also have bloated abdomen, cramps, blood in stool, mucus in stool, pale skin, weakness. Your symptoms may be also caused by chronic bacterial infection however usually it does not last so long. I suggest you to do not wait any longer. Please visit your doctor, have abdominal ultrasound, blood work, stool tests. Colonoscopy is strongly advisable. Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions. Regards.
