I have always suffered with IBS issues over the years, however two weeks ago, I started with diarrhea and cramps which progressed to passing blood too. The blood is bright to dark red, there has been occasions where I just pass blood and mucus following an urge to go, and will have to go a few times in the space of half an hour before stool passes too. I get pain in my stomach and lower back during this, and burning/aching under my ribs. I've had blood and stool tests which came back normal, and also had an examination of my stomach/rectum which were also normal. I have been referred now to a gastroenterologist, with suspected inflammatory bowel disorder. Has anyone had similar symptoms? And can an IBD be there with normal inflammatory markers if it is newly presenting? Just worrying especially with there being a wait now due to the coronavirus.
