Question: I am having problems urinating and pooping. I find myself peeing often and it's an uncomfortable urge to go and when I go I have the urge to poop as well but their isn't always stool that comes out but I still have the urge so that leads me to straining myself and I know that's bad. Also I find a lot of phlegm coming out where I release stool.

Thanks for your query.

Based on your statement it appears that you have increase frequency and urgency of urination.

You are 18 years and the common cause of these symptoms at this age is Urine Test
2) Ultrasound scanning
This will help to establish a diagnosis. Your primary care provider can guide you through the tests.
Please ensure that you drink plenty of water.

As far as increased urge to pass stools and inability to pass stools suggest that you may have an associated intestinal infection probably related to amoeba. Verifying a stool sample under microscopy - as done in the stool routine test can rule out this infection. I would suggest you to get this done also.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any queries do not hesitate to write, I shall be happy to address the same.

last tuesday i woke up in the morning with non stop explosive was pure liquid. so the doc did blood samples/ rectal exam and found blood. i had excruciatin abdominal pain the next day so they did a ct scan and found nothing. the very next day i was extremely constipated for almost 5 days. then, i gave a stool sample yesterday mornin and they found a small indicator of some kinda infection. they prescribed me cipro and flagyl after the stool sample (because i had high white blood cell counts from my blood sample/ plus what they saw in my stool). this morning when i woke up i had the worst diarrhea i ve ever had. ever. it s nothing but pure liquid and i ve had it about 17 times already. it started out reddish/ orange and now its like neon yellow. i feel like ive released about 10 lbs of stool/ body fluid so far. it comes out in big gushes each time. plus i felt faint, nauseated, had abdominal pain and chills this mornin too. what s wrong with me?

I have continued one month of loose stool. I was traveling a lot back home in India, in between I caught dysentery with mucous stool, I went through medication needed for it with tablets and then, I had to travel to Delhi and Sweden, without getting proper . after continued medication the pain and mucous was gone, and the interval between defecation time lessened, but after returning back to Singapore I still have the problem of stool not tight enough and watery content and the stool itself comes out of sedimented or fragmented kind and still there is a bit of mucous in it because of its slippery content. I have lost a bit weight also, none of the medicines I consumed helped drastically to harden the stool. I am having disturbed sleep for the last two days and sometimes my stool has absolutely no smell and sometimes a slight sourish one, but its always with water and fragmets of solids which sediments dirtlike in the water

Hi My son is 2 years old he has had intermittent diarrhea for 11 days which has been coupled with some vomiting. We are awaiting the results of a stool sample which won t be back til next week. The diarrhea has stopped a little and the poo is no longer watery. The thing is, his stools are now very dark green and have black lumpy bits and mucus in them. His mood is very good although he is quite pale. his temperature is fine and he has a bit of an appetite, for which i am giving him very plain biscuits and watery squash. No dairy products at all for 4 days. Basically, what do i do? Do we just wait for the results of the stool sample and keep with the plain diet or is there something else I can do? I have been cleaning and disinfecting as instructed and nothing seems to be getting better. Thanks for your help
