We are presently living in China and recently my 5 year old daughter has had some odd symptoms. For the past couple of days, she's experienced sharp pain in her left side just above her hip bone after urinating - happened about 3 times. Then last night she had a nose bleed in the middle of the night. Just now she had a bloody stool. She came down with a cold today so I know she's feeling a bit low... I realize that some of these things are unrelated, but the pain in her side and blood in her stool concerns me...
Do you have any idea what this could be? She said she has no pain in her stomach and no pain in the right side.
Bloody diarrhea and severe abdominal cramps located in the lower left abdominal area, can be due to a inflammatory bowel disease known as ulcerative colitis (possible it affects the lower part of colon and rectum).
Other symptoms characteristic for this conditions are frequent fevers, poor appetite, weight loss, growth failure, fatigue, anemia.
