I am assuming that the blood in your stool is due to the constipation causing fissure around your anal area which the blood is usually light red which also could be the colon near the rectum. When you took a dump did it hurt?. Since your pain goes away it takes away a certain stenosis symptom so its not that, so It could be the muscle and not bones or both. It's more likely to be muscle since its the lower left back and not the middle unless a constriction is within the bone. Is the pain near the lumbar spine or the thoractic spine? Here's the chart picture of the spine http://balajiinternationaltraders.com/IMAGES/spinal_chart.jpg
Ok.. So I assume it's
diverticulitis cause the symptom match here It's actually common .
What are the symptoms of diverticular disease?
Most patients with diverticulosis have few or no symptoms. The diverticulosis in these individuals is found incidentally during tests for other intestinal problems. Twenty percent of patients with diverticulosis will develop symptoms related to diverticulosis. The most common symptoms of diverticular disease include:
* abdominal cramping,
* constipation, and
The bottom is just saying to eat food high in fiber to prevent the constipation.
Medical treatment of diverticulitis
Most patients with diverticulosis have minimal or no symptoms, and do not require any specific treatment. A high fiber diet and fiber supplements are advisable to prevent constipation and perhaps prevent the formation of more diverticula.
Patients with mild symptoms of abdominal pain due to muscular spasm in the area of the diverticula may benefit from anti-spasmodic drugs such as:
* chlordiazepoxide (Librax),
* dicyclomine (Bentyl),
* atropine, scopolamine, phenobarb (Donnatal), and
* hyoscyamine (Levsin).
Some doctors also recommend avoidance of nuts, corn, and seeds to prevent complications of diverticulosis. Whether these dietary restrictions are beneficial is uncertain.
When diverticulitis occurs, antibiotics are usually needed. Oral antibiotics are sufficient when symptoms are mild. Some examples of commonly prescribed antibiotics include:
* ciprofloxacin (Cipro),
* metronidazole (Flagyl),
* cephalexin (Keflex), and
* doxycycline (Vibramycin).
Liquid or low fiber foods are advised during acute attacks of diverticulitis. This is done to reduce the amount of material that passes through the colon, which at least theoretically, may aggravate the diverticulitis. In severe diverticulitis with high fever and pain, patients are hospitalized and given intravenous antibiotics. Surgery is needed for patients with persistent bowel obstruction or abscess not responding to antibiotics.
No everyone is different your symptom doesn't need to be diarrhea and it's Not Colorectal cancer. Some people have little to no symptom. You ended up with constipation and pain on your left bottom. And yes it said about the bleeding state to.
Diverticular disease increases with age. It is uncommon before the age of forty, and is seen in more than fifty percent of people over the age of 60 years in the United States. Whereas most patients with diverticular disease (have no or few symptoms), some patients will develop bleeding, rupture and infection (diverticulitis), constipation, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and even colonic obstruction.
Ask the doctor about Diverticular and ask what they think if you want, or you could eat food high in fiber which is usually veggies.
