Customer Question

Hi! I am wondering what could possibly be causing my GI issues. For the past month, my stomach has been loudly making noise throughout the day even when I'm not hungry. My stools have had a lot mucus mixed in it. Neither of which have occurred before. Although it has been loud, no abdominal pain. It usually is either constipation or diarrhea, but for the last week a little blood has been on my stools. Thank you!
