Customer Question
I have 3 -5...

I have 3 -5 bowel movements every morning. They are usually very soft stools and at times with mucus, abdominal pain and cramping and rectal pain. This has been going on for many years now. Been tested for Celiac which came back negative.

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

At times it is extremely painful. I usually have to go straight to the toilet as soon as I open my eyes in the morning.

How old are you?

M/F?

How many years has this been going on?

What are your bowel habits during the rest of the day and night?

What tests have you had done and what did they find?

Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?

This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.

35, Female, its been going on for about 3 years. Sometimes I have a bowel movement in the evening and at times I strain, painful and rectal bleeding. I've had a colonoscopy about 5 years ago, all clear. Two endoscopies within last 3 years. Last one was in October 2015 found gastritis in the duodenum and positive for H.Pylori. I mainly suffer from GI problems. Have mild asthma, ITP. No medications.

I am seeking your opinion on my situation. Thank you.
Eye Doctor: Dr. Rick, Board Certified MD replied 2 years ago

Thank you for that clarification.

Well, it sounds like you have spent quite some time trying to get to the bottom of what is going on. I am sure that your previous doctors have thought of, and ruled out, all of the common and easily treatable conditions that could be causing your issues. Would you say this is a correct statement?

At this point I think the best thing for you to do would be to gather up copies of all your medical records, test results etc and travel to a large University Teaching hospital. At an institution like that you could be evaluated and treated by a team of sub-specialists who are at the cutting edge of their respective fields. The best thing about these large teaching hospitals is that consultations are available with Professors and leaders in their field by just walking a few steps down the hall.

The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota is an excellent example of just such a place as this. That being said there are many excellent teaching hospitals all across the country and I am sure that there is one near you.

I know that it is going to take significant effort on your part, but I believe that going to one of the "Medical Mecca's" is your best chance to – finally -- get to the bottom of what is going on with your bowel movements and pain.

Does this make sense to you?

I hope this information was helpful for you. But I do work for tips so I want to make sure you are happy with me before rating me. If you have another question on this or a related issue feel free to fire away. You may also receive an email survey after our chat, if you don’t feel that I have earned the top rating in all areas, please let me know what I can do to meet your expectations.

Thanks in advance,

Dr. Rick MD FACS
