Suffer from diarrhea and stomach cramps. Bleeding during bowel movements. Constipation. Need to go to ER?

I woke up at about 3 am with diarrhea and stomached cramps . After I finished using the restroom the stomached pain went from a 10 to a 5. This went on every 30-45 minutes until around 8 am then I could not have any kind of bowel movement even thought the pain would come I like I needed to go. I would just sit and push and about 6-10 drops of blood came out only. It s 130 now and this is still going on. Pain increasing when I feel like I need to go but only blood drops coming out. Should I go to the ER or is this normal?

Thank you for the query.

Most of diarrhea is caused by bacterial or viral infection. It usually does not need medical attention and gets healed by its own. It is also very normal that after diarrhea, intestines are empty so there wont be no stool for few days.
However blood in stool is concerning symptoms.
I suggest you to stop forcing stool passage. Please have only liquids for a day and than mild diet. If the symptoms will be improving and there will be no diarrhea, you may try to not visit a doctor. However if the symptoms wont go away in 48 hours, you should visit your doctor.

Hope this will help.
