what causes upper abdominal pain and rectal bleeding ?

I am a 23 year old female. my weight is 160 and im 5 5 . I suffer from diverticulis, ibs, and acute colits. I am constantly in and out of the hospital for flare ups from diverticulis, and very bad intense pain. I have pain mostly on my lower left side but I also get these super bad pains that are stabing and pulsating at the top of my stomach like where the brest bone is. I have been unable to find the cause of the pain, but its so bad at times it hurts to breath and when this hhappens I cant even move. I had my gallblatter out in 2009 , im on nexium and zantac. Ialso take zofron and promethazin for cronic nausea . I used to be on bental and liborax( not sure on the spelling) for ibs but it did nothing. I take effexor for my deppresion and adderal for my ADD. I used to take vicodon for my stomack pain but my new doctor took me off cause he didnt want me to get addicted. I am in constant pain and have noumorus episodes of recral bleeding I went to the er a few weeks ago is bad pain and bleeding from rectal, the bleedin was bright red and it went to pee and liquid came out of my anus, I thought it was diarea but it was just straight blood. So I went straight to the ER. The did blood test and ct and the dr said everything looked ok sent me home. He never elaberated on anything, Nor did he do a rectal exam. I just dont understand whats going on. I dont have a bowel movement everday and when I do its really soft or basicly water with little peices of poop. I dont have a fever with these symptoms. Do you have any idea what the upper pain is from? When I went to the er it was the same symptoms as everytime I have a flair up of the diverticulosis , if that wasnt the cause then what is? I am very thankful for any help! i cant live in pain like this and so far the dr at the hospital have been no help

Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
The pain in your stomach is because of the multiple problems you are having all at the same time.You are getting an appropriate treatment also. But the disease itself is such that it is likely to cause repeated bouts of stools with blood staining and mucus.
