I’m having stomach cramps...

I’m having stomach cramps like I need to use the bathroom; #2, since early this morning. I went a few times but it was only a little. Now when I feel like I have to go it’s blood and blood clots. This has happened 3 times so far. Do I need immediate medical attention?

Doctor's Assistant: How long has this been bothering you? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?

Since 4 am today. I felt nausea when it started but now now. The cramping is coming and going

Okay

Do you have a history of hemorrhoids? Do you have a fever? Taking any medication?

Sometimes they bother me but not that I have to use medication. I take Bencar for blood pressure but been on that for many years

It sounds like you may have acute diverticulitis. May I suggest you go to an Urgent Care Center now for evaluation. If you do have Diverticulitis, you will need antibiotics and possible IV fluids. Please don't ignore your symptoms.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
