Cancer survivor, Myasthenia Gravis, have constipation alternating with diarrhea, pinkish red mucus with bowels. Cause?

I am a 48-year-old, Caucasian female. I have been experiencing constipation alternating with diarrhea . There is always a pinkish to red mucus discharge with the bowel movement . This can be seen in the stool or separate - such as when I have diarrhea - and then the mucus is actually separate from the stool. It appears in a blob or ball like formation, kind of fluffy, and can range from pink to red in color. I am a cancer survivor (cervical/uterine and Thyroid). Recently (2011) diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis . I currently work for a physician but do not wish to ask. Any information - and I know it is not a diagnosis - would be appreciated.

Hi,

First I recommend to go for stool analysis to exclude any infection, if it is normal you may need to go for endoscopy.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Dr Grief thanks in advance for your time.What exactly is myasthenia gravis. When I look it up I get a lot of different diseases. Is this the blanket name for any kind of autoimmune problems? I have gone to a neurologist, and he has done a blood test but won t get the results for two weeks and I really wanted to know what I can expect. The joints in my ankles, right knee, left wrist are hurting and my right eyes wants to close sporadically. When I was a young adult I had seizures. I have to take a blood thinner because I have a blood disorder that makes my blood too thick, I have had (5) heart attacks. My mother died from this disorder, in the end they said it was a type of bone cancer(acute leukemia).

I have Graves Disease, Myasthenia, and possible Lupus. I am on immunosuppressants. The past couple of weeks, I have been experience puffiness on both sides of my neck, starting with the left side, tightness in my chest, and intermittent effusive sweating. Two days ago, I started developing a rash on the back of my right upper arm and on my side under my arm. The rash has now started the same way on my left side, on both knees, and my right upper leg. It starts out looking like little blisters, then forms into big red inflamed patches. It burns and itches. Any idea what this could be? Thanks

Hi doctor, I m a 28 year old, usually healthy female. I have a gynefix in situ, my period was due on Monday, i have only experienced spotting since then and am having some very strange (for me) experiences. I am so tired that I didn t get out of bed until 14:45 today. I did get up in the night projectile vomiting . I have been getting mild cramps , nausea and have been feeling light headed occassionally over the last few weeks. My bowel movements flip between diarrhoea and constipation . I keep getting achy and in work feeling like I m going to pass out. It feels as though there is something there when I lie on my side at night and for almost 2-3 months I have felt like something is stuck or caught when I bend down and stand up too quickly. I went to a walk in centre last month and was advised to go to the hospital incase it was an ectopic pregnancy . They kept me for 5 hours in A&E, did a blood test and said I should be refered by my GP to a gynaecologist , however, I haven t heard anything! My periods are usually heavy, last months was but this month it is just spotting so far. What would you recommend I do?

I have been constipated for a few days. My friends and I decided to go on a hiking trip. During the hike, I was okay, but after my stomach really was upset. My boyfriend gave me laxatives, and even though they worked for the constipation , my body started to ache and my head started hurting. I m taking a lot of fluids, but I m not eating much, since my stomach is still bubbly. What could I have and how can I get better?
