For the past couple months I've noticed that my bowels aren't the same. I have many other problems so this hasn't been my main concern but considering the fact that colon cancer runs very strongly in my family along with a mutated cancer gene; I'm becoming more worried.

Here are my symtoms concerning my bowels;
Every morning I wake up with diarrea; for the past couple weeks it has been dark green (almost black) and there is some blood on paper along with small blood clots. For the past year, I have been having the symptoms listed in my previous posts. http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?t=18602&highlight=nettyaa

Off and on, my BM's change. Mostly its just diarrea, but some times I will be extremely constipated; unable to go for 2 days, then I will wake up one morning and the diarrea will be back. In the past year, there has been a lot of times where there is blood in my stool but nothing like how it has been in the past weeks. I haven't noticed any changes with what I eat. When I eat I go to the bathroom within 5-20 mins after. I have severe pain below my ribs on the right side that comes and goes. It is so severe that I cannot walk, breathe or talk; it feels like someone is stabbing me. I often have gas pain, which is pretty painful, but it is not the same as the pain in my side.

If anyone has any idea what is going on, please share your advice.
