History of loose stools, noticed mucus around it, rectal pain. Cause and cure?

i have had loose to soft stool for over 5 years now and it ranges from very soft but still formed to complete liquid. lately ive noticed alot of mucus like strings in my stool and its always the same color of the stool. the stools are usually accompanied by stomach gurgling and a sudden urge/ or cramping explosive diarrhea and if i take immodium i will then be constipated for 2 or more days which is nice compared to the cramps and rectal pain and blood spotting from wiping so much
