Hello. A little over a month ago I suddenly started

Hello. A little over a month ago I suddenly started having abdominal pain and cramping. It was constant up until about 3 or 4 days ago. Now it's nowhere near as bad. But for the past 4 days my ribs hurt like they are squeezing me when I lay down on both sides and in back of ribs, eith fast or hard heartbeat, with lightheaded and fatigue. Was wondering your opinion. Thank you. Also I'm a 36 year old male

Hello. A week ago, I suddenly started to have sharp, stabbing pain in my lower left quadrant. A few days later, my abdomen distended and the distension has persisted- I look about 7 months pregnant. The pain has now spread across my entire lower abdomen, and I have both intermittent sharp and cramping pains. What could possibly be causing this?

Hello, its been almost a month in a half, to be specific it happened on Sep. 20th. I got bit by something behind my left thigh but it was just a small red bump that grew a bit larger, smaller than my palm. It hurt when i would push on it but within the next 2 days it went away without a trace. Then i started to get joint pain or cramps when i would stretch or bend down on my left leg where i got bit, also with shortness of breath. Now it feels as if my left arm is weaker and i get stomachpain that stinks but goes away. It all feels kind of like arthritis and joint pain. Im bad at explain but I would like to know if its bad or if it ll pass.

I am 47, African American, 5 9 195. a little overweight but athletic (built like a smaller version of Mike Tyson haha). Active runner and weights. About 5 months ago, I first starting to see light blood (bright red) in my stool. This was followed by IBS. I would have the loudest, most embarrassing gas episodes, combined with small droplets or small stringy stools. Sometimes, the gas would seem to be releasing inside of me like, spontaneous combustion! Sometimes the blood then be on the toilet paper after. The stool would sometimes be covered with a white filmy substance. So, I dealt with this for about two months because I didn t have health insurance. I started doing research and saw a number of reasons for these symptoms (everything from cancer to hemorrhoids ). I started taking more fiber (Fiber 1, the one that has 57% of fiber recommended amount). Within a few days, my problems dissipated. I didnt see anymore obvious blood and the stools went back to normal. I never suffered weight loss but I have an some intermittent stomach pain. I guess over all, something still doesnt feel right. I have been having tailbone pain and gas. Sometimes, I feel like I can press on my tailbone and make the gas pass through. A few days ago, I was suffering from low energy but that is no longer the case. I am going to go to a clinic and tell them of my symptoms but was wondering if you have any knowledge of these symptoms or advice. Thank you!
