Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Mild bloody stain in the stool along with mucus might just be because of stool infection like amoebiasis. A course of antiboitic will cure your problem. IBS etc is comparatively a rare disorder and should be thought of as a possible cause only after you have ruled out the infection.

I woke up last night with horrible stomach cramps at first my stool was normal and then as the cramps got worse I got diarrhea and was having dry heaves at the same time the next morning I was still having some cramping and when I went to the bathroom there was blood in the toilet and when I wiped I also had the dry heaves again and broke out in a cold sweat I thought I was going to pass out today I m still having slight cramping and when I had a bowel movement it had mucus and darker blood mixed in. I also am having some lower back pain Not severe but like a dull ache. I am a 58 year old female with no health issues I m aware of.

I took pepto bismo on Tuesday and a little on Wednesday due to stomach cramps. For the most part the cramping is gone. Once in a while I feel minor cramps. I also ate blueberries and beet. I have a an upper respitory cough which is bring up yellowish phlegm. Last night, Saturday, I noticed dark stools which have continued today. I am a 69 years old female who has enjoyed excellent health. My last colonoscopy was in November 2010. Was getting one every 3 years for a decade but my doctor said to come every 5 years as I have had no polyps or problems. I do have a family history of colon and rectal cancer. Should I be concerned about the dark stools or wait to see if they stop since the foods I was eating and the pepto bismos can cause them. I have eaten blueberries in the past with no problems.

I have been having GI issues for about 2 months now. At first, there was pressure when I went to the bathroom, but that has subsided. Now, my stomach feels bloated and full of gas when I wake up and sometimes throughout the day. Went to urgent care and they did an X-Ray of the intestines and stool sample but found nothing. I'm removing the lactose and taking an over the counter pro-biotic. Going to get blood tests at the end of the week. Could be neurological as I just finished grad school, no job and am entering the military at age 31. Any suggestions?
