Rectal bleeding with mucus and blood clots. What is that suppose to mean? Why is there abdominal pain?

For the past 2 months I have been having rectal bleeding with mucous and blood clots. I have the urgency to have BM s continously thru the day but upon applying pressure its just blood. I am 54 yo female student and have no insurance at this time. I have been taking Miralax daily as well as the probiotics for colon health. I have been experiencing abdominal pain primarily right side radiating to my back along with peridioc colickly abd.pain. Its very bad today should I go to ER.

Hello!
Your symptoms are very serious and a colonoscopy should be done as soon as possible.
This might be signs of colorectal cancer and should not be ignored.
Abdomen ultrasound or CT should be performed and blood tests as well.
Hope this will help

Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
You should immediately consult with physician and go for colonoscopy.
This is sure to rule out IBD/ Malignancy.
There is also possibility of acute dysentery.
Thanks,
