my daughter (20 years old ) has been having awful stomach pains, diarrhoea and blood. She is needing to go about 15 times a day and throughout the night. 

The doctor did blood tests and took a few samples but it has all come back clear. It makes no sense. In a way I am pleased its all clear but also know that her situation is not right and dont know where to go from here. Any ideas??

    Has she had calprotectin stool test? It’s for inflammation caused by mostly ibd like cd or uc, if she’s getting up in night then it’s organic and not an ibs, could be ulcerative colitis

      I have IBS and when it started, the pain woke me from sleep.  This has now stopped.  However, bleeding should always be investigated.

    if you can get your daughter to try peppermint flavour tea and see if that will help the reason why you see blood maybe there is a split down there try to put on a but of cream but use a cotton bud to put the cream on and that should help

    Has she had a fecal calprotectin test to look for inflammation that may suggest IBD?  This can include Crohns, Ulcerative colitis and microscopic colitis. If the calprotectin is very high, a colonoscopy would be done to confirm IBD.

      It could be that she doesn’t have the conditions she has been tested for and that’s why they come back negative.  She will need tests for other things to investigate the bleeding.
