Hi, I was looking for some advice. I have been suffering from bleeding/mucas in very loose stools (I'm going to the loo about 6-10 a day - very urgently sometimes within a few hours of eating), gas/bloating/lack of appetite/cramps/low energy every day for about 5 weeks now. The only way I am finding I get any relief from these symptoms is to not eat - adding to the tiredness. I have been examined by a GP who could not find any hemmoroids/tears to explain the bleeding/clots (there is quite a lot/mid red colour) so referred me for blood tests (full blood count/kidney/liver function/imflammation). These came back last week as 'satisfsctory'. I am now waiting for a colonoscopy appointment. I'm scared as I've never had one before. I suppose I am asking 1. What should I expect at the colonoscopy and 2. In your experience are my symptoms anything like chrons/colitis or am I totally barking upthe wrong tree? All I know is that something is wrong and I'm not sure how best to help myself - other than not go too far from a toilet!! Plus im wprried as my blood tests have come back ok that the colonoscopy wont find anything either. Any advice gratefully received. I'm a woman aged 33. Thanks.
