So last year in August I had a colonoscopy which came back all fine. The last 10 days I have had loose stools going to the toilet about 3-6 times a day. The first stool seems to be covered in mucous. I just came off antibiotics and anti-acids before all this started for treatment of h.pylori. I had an endoscopy done last week which came back showing only very small amount of inflammation in my stomach and the doctor said nothing to worry about.
I was diagnosed with IBS years ago but it has always been constipation related never loose stools. I had a stool test done only 2 months ago to check for parasites because my constipation had become worse and I had noticed large amounts of mucas in my stool which the doctor said is likely just ibs.
I am highly stressed and am wondering if that is why I have been getting loose stools.
Today I had a very small amount of fresh blood in my stool however I think it's just from hemorrhoids as I have had blood from hemorrhoids before so I'll wait a few days before going to the doctor if it continues.
I has an ultrasound done on my stomach only 2 months ago because I was severely constipated and had stomach pain which has since subsided. The ultrasound had come back normal.
Has anyone else experienced these symptons with IBS and is it likely due to stress?
