Thank you for the query.

You definitely should visit your doctor and have proper diagnostics. Blood in stool, mucus in stool, constipation, abdominal pain sounds like large intestine problem. It can be bowels obstruction due to inflammatory bowels disease (Crohns disease) or colon cancer. Tiredness, pain in arms is most likely a result of low hemoglobin level and ions deficiency.
As it lasts 2 weeks, and does not seem to get better, you should visit your doctor right away.
Blood work, abdominal ultrasound and abdominal X-ray should be done at first. Next step should be colonoscopy.

Hope this will help.
