I have had on occasion very sharp pains in my rectum during the night occompanied by the need for a bowel movement. When I have the bowel movement, it would be very small. Now for the last 4 months, I have had bleeding in my stools. Very thin stools on occasions with mucus, but most always there are lines of bright blood on the stool with blood on the toilet paper. When this first began the need for a bowel movement was several times a day. Now I have 1 a day, but with the bright blood and there is always the mucus and clots. Sometimes the stools are normal in color and other times they are a darkish color, but always with blood streaks. There is also the presence of gas when having the bowel movement. I still have the stabbing sharp pain sometimes and if I strain at all during the movement, there is lots of blood on the tissue, but it does not hurt during the movement. Right now I have the feeling of needing to have a movement and the lower part of my stomach feels like I might have a upset stomach, but it will only be a little gas with blood mixed with mucus and what appears to be blood clots. please help with any information...thanks ..js98204 :confused:
