It is hard to diagnose this condition only given the symptoms you describe. You will need to go to your doctor for a physical examination, standard blood work, an abdominal ultrasound and laboratory check for hidden bleeding in the stool before you will know what is causing this disturbance. Endoscopic procedures (gastroscopy and colonoscopy) may be required at a later point.
