been told its either IBS, celiac diesease, bowel cancer, IBD

It all started a year ago, when I use to get abdominal pain, which would make me need to pass a stool, after passing the stool which is either hard/diarrhea/rabbit dropping like (constipation would be releaved. I found this would happen with certain foods I ate, these being fried chips and salted peanuts. I chose to stay off these and didn't have a problem again. However, I've recently been experiencing these pains again but this has been happening for 4 weeks now, It's the similar pain but it happens every morning before i leave, and occurs when I think about how it's going to affect my day. However, once the stool is passed the pain again subsides (this being mid-day once it has been passed.) If i hold the stool the pain subsides after a while and I release the stool later on.

My diet has been changing as I've started to like my food and become more independent (choosing when I eat and what I eat). For the past two weeks, I have passed a stool which has contained blood in at one week intervals between each, but the night before i passed the stools I ate "heavy" tomato containing food this being enchiladas. Once, the next day comes and I pass the stool i still get the same experience of pains but without blood.

I have read numerous online websites and been told its either IBS, celiac diesease, bowel cancer, IBD and other bowel conditions. I'm worrying typing this and need advice on what this could be. I'm also re-known for having stress and anxiety. Thanks

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Only worrisome symptom is blood and IBD needs to be ruled out. Consult a gastroenterologist and let them help.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
