Hi there,

Thanks for your query.

The information is very sketchy. I wish you had posted more details, such as, your age and gender; nature of bowel movements; blood or mucus in stools ever in the past; itching in the rectum; burning or pain in passing urine; increased frequency of urination; urinary infections in the past; pain in the left hip while walking; observation of a momentary bulge in left lower abdomen + groin while coughing of straining.

In the absence of the desired information, I can hazard a couple of guesses : an early left sided hernia or, irritable bowel syndrome (a condition characterized by erratic bowel movements, abdominal discomfort, acidity, diarrhea/constipation, gas formation etc... These symptoms are aggravated by mental stress, emotional upsets, and beverages like coffee/ name a few.

You may discuss with your doctor, who will examine you for these two conditions.
