Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Such symptom can be due to IBS. However, it can also appear with some other conditions involving large intestine. Especially if you have had constipations before, are around 50, have some blood in stool or lost some weight recently. It is advisable for you to have some diagnostics. You should start with abdominal ultrasound, full blood work and colonoscopy.

Hope this will help.
Regards.

hello slavica, according to me you should first take sodium picosulfate syrup so that your constipation is relieved and if you notice mucus then it shows infection with inflammation but this will be confirmed by ultrasound.i advice you for liver tonic now because may be it is due to liver functioning but after your ultrasound confirm inflammtion and infection add antibiotics with it.
