Bright red blood usually indicates fresh bleeding from the lower part of the intestine is and/or the rectal/anal area. Ordinarily I would suspect the cause to be an anal fissure (tear) or internal hemorrhoids. However, since severe cramping is also present, it sounds like your symptoms more closely correlated with an E. coli infection. Read more here.

This condition can be very serious -- even leading to kidney damage. Please see a doctor as soon as possible.
