Stomach pain while going to the bathroom?

This is an embarrassing problem but I need to know if I should go to the doctor. Just before I have to go to the bathroom I have abdominal pain and it continues after I’m done for a while. It hurts really bad. Most of the time my stool is different colors and I have seen blood in the stool. Most of the time it seems like an upset stomach but it has been going on for a few months. I’ve tried taking Fiber tablets and drinking more water to see if it helps but it hasn’t. Do I need to go to the Doctor?

  1. You were smart to try to drink more water and try fiber. Now it’s definitely time to go to the doctor. I know it’s embarassing, and it could be something simple, but it could also be something serious and the quicker you get treated, the better off you will be. Be prepared to tell him if your diet has changed in the last few months…think about it ahead of time and write down any questions you have (once I get in there I go blank). Good luck.

  2. yes u should and u mite have bad digestion so take stuff like alka seltzer of pepto bismal.

  3. You may have a spastic colon, and would benefit from consulting a gastroenterologist. He/she will address the blood in your stool (which is never a good thing). Make an appointment today!
