I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Should I go to a doctor for diarrhea, abdominal cramps and blood in stool?

I had severe diarreah, abdominal cramps worse than I have ever had, sweats, starting at 10 last night. When I had my last bowel movement, it had blood in it. During the day today if I had what I thought would be a bm, it was about a tablespoon of red blood. Should I go to the doctor tomorrow?? I couldn't go today because I am 30 miles away from my doctor and couldn't get there without having to stop, and there are no bathrooms because it is a rural area. I also felt nauseated but never threw up. Thanks for your help.

You may be suffering from bacillary dysentery or amoebic dysentery. Avoid spicy food and alcohol avoid smoking and caffeine drinks.

Use tablet Ofloxacin and Ornidazole. Use tablet Sporlac. Drink plenty of liquid and ORS solution. If symptoms not improved please consult your doctor, he will examine and treat you accordingly.

I have been to the doctor many times over my stomach. But I seem to not be getting any answers. You see ever sense I have gotten my galblader taken out when I was 14, which would make it 18 years ago I have been having problems with my stomach, I have excessive cramping, diarrhea and sometimes constipation. My stoll has been bloody here lately. My doctor just writes it off as hemrodes. But the blood is in my stool not on top or even in the toilet. It scares me because I have been having this problem for a very long time. And it also depends on what eat that triggers these problems. Please let me know what is going on so I can get some relief and should I get reffred to a specialist about this. Thanks!

when I eat I start having cramps and have to go to the bathroom immediately. My stools are very loose with a lot of water. I have many accidents before I can even get to the bathroom. I have pain under my rib cage toward the center and left side. What type of doctor should I go to and do you have any idea what my problem is. I am 72 years old and have dealt with this over 25 years. Thank you I will contact you later when I have the money. Thank you

Hello, I m 73, am on chemotherapy as neoadjuvant treatment for Stage III breast cancer. Became constipated after chemo #2 (14 more to go!) and have bleeding hemorrhoids. Because white blood cell count low, vulnerable to infection, so am on Amoxicillin/Clav. Took much in the way of stool softeners and laxatives to free up feces, then got diarrhea. Pain on passing any type of stool--hard or soft--is excruciating. Now that diarrhea has passed, am so constipated that I m having deep, pulsating gas pains so painful I m screaming into a pillow! If blood values are up, should have 3rd chemo treatment on Monday, but miserable between now and then. PLEASE HELP. With Gratitude, J..
