Recently I've been having a very strange lack of appetite, and every time I eat I feel sick. It's difficult to pee, and for a while I was having bad constipation but with only mucus coming out, and then finally stool with mucus. When I can pass, I find a bit of blood on my tissue. Sometimes I feel a tight pain in my lower abdomen, but it's extremely transient, and I thought it was because I needed water. It's been persistent but I'm not sure if it will pass or I should meet with a medical consultant. I haven't been experiencing diarrhea or a fever, but everything I find online ranges from IBS to colonic cancer and I'm really concerned.

Also, I smoke, but rarely. I began only late summer, and have never smoked much. One cigarette a day every few days, and I stopped for a while recently. I'm only 16, I'm white, and I'm not sure if I have any family with it. Also I recently stopped using marijuana cold turkey. Not sure if these could be related but I don't have anyone I can really discuss these factors with.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. It looks like mere constipation predominant IBS. No harm in getting evaluated for IBDs after complete clinical correlation> Consult a gastroenterologist nearby 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
