I am a 27 year old female of what I know to be good health. For a few months I have been getting really constipated (which I thought was due to my percocet), then I would get severe cramps in my lover abdomen which would lead to severe diarrhea. But about a week ago I had severe cramping to where I couldn't walk or move at all. My entire body was shaking and eventually I had a bowel movement. All day I couldn't move an inch or I would get severe cramping and have to go to the bathroom. By the afternoon I noticed no stool, just about a shot glass of blood each time I went. I also had a constant urge to urinate, it felt as if I didn't go at all when I knew that I did. I had no fever during this day and a half. Also I was extremely tired (I would fall asleep in the middle of conversations). The next day I felt extremely intoxicated. For days after that I would get severe cramping, but it was just gas that in order to pass I would have to sit like I was going to have a bowel movement. Also I can not walk more than a few hundred yards. It feels as if my stomach (uterus area) is bulging, and I can see that it is not. (I know with 100% certainty that I am NOT pregnant.) Today I went to the bathroom, and when I went to wipe there was an extremely large blood clot followed by many more large blood clots. I am very nervous, and do not have insurance. Is this something that I am getting overworked about and could be fixed easily by a change in my diet or an over the counter medicine, or is this something that needs to be addressed by a doctor?
You need to see a doctor right away. There are serious conditions that include significant bleedingand abdominal pain, such as, Crohn's Disease, ulcerative Colitis, colon cancer to name a few. I know it's hard when you don't have insurance but in this case you can't afford not to go to the doc.
