When there is a faint discomfort in the body, but it does not affect the normal work and life, there will be a problem that has been bothering me all the time-do you want to go to the hospital or not?

No, what if it is a big event in what?
Therefore, understanding and understanding the symptoms of some digestive tract diseases can help us make decisions. There is no need to run an empty race or miss any omen.
Inflammatory bowel disease (including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis) is a kind of chronic intestinal inflammation that will recur. Most people with inflammatory bowel will feel abdominal discomfort, even blood or mucus in stool, weight loss, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
These symptoms may also occur due to diseases such as rectal cancer and hemorrhoids.Therefore, it is best to be able toGo to the hospital for examination in time to eliminate other diseases and avoid unnecessary troubles.
Symptom 1: Hematochezia
After the symptoms of blood in stool occur, do you need to determine whether there is blood in stool first? Is the color of hematochezia red or black?
Blood in stool is a common symptom of ulcerative colitis, especially pus and blood stool. Crohn’s disease can also cause blood in stool, but to a lesser extent.
Note: If you can’t think of the cause of hematochezia and the symptoms continue to be accompanied by diarrhea, pain and vomiting, you should see a doctor immediately. The doctor will conduct colonoscopy to diagnose whether it is inflammatory bowel disease.
Hemorrhoids and rectal cancer may also cause hematochezia.
Symptom 2: Mucus in stool
Mucus is a part of the stool, but it is usually invisible to the naked eye. If the mucus in the stool is already visible to the naked eye, it may need attention.
Note: If you still have abdominal pain, vomiting or diarrhea, see a doctor immediately for further examination.
Irritable bowel syndrome, bacterial infection can also lead to mucus in stool.
Symptom 3: Persistent Diarrhea
There are many reasons for diarrhea. Healthy adults also have diarrhea several times a year, but general diarrhea symptoms can disappear automatically.
If you feel abdominal pain all the time (lasting for more than three days), you need regular treatment. Patients with inflammatory bowel disease often have multiple outbreaks of diarrhea a day, such as three to ten or even 20 watery stool.
Note: Diarrhea is also one of the most distressing symptoms in patients with inflammatory bowel disease. If diarrhea symptoms cannot disappear automatically, accompanied by abdominal pain, hematochezia, weight loss, fever or other symptoms, you must seek medical treatment as soon as possible.
Symptom 4: Abdominal Pain
Patients with ulcerative colitis often show a burst of pain in the lower left abdomen, while patients with Crohn’s disease mostly show pain in other parts of the abdomen.
However, abdominal pain and inflammatory bowel disease are not equated. It is possible that abdominal pain symptoms will weaken or disappear after a period of time, and may also recur.
Note: If severe abdominal pain is accompanied by nausea, vomiting, fever and other symptoms, it may also be a manifestation of intestinal obstruction and must be treated immediately.
Symptom 5: Weight Loss
Today’s society is full of ideas about losing weight. However, if you lose weight obviously without strict energy intake restrictions or a lot of exercise, then don’t worry and be happy, it may be a physical problem.
Patients with inflammatory bowel disease often have diarrhea symptoms and may lose weight rapidly. At the same time, it is also possible to lose appetite, which in turn leads to weight loss due to insufficient energy intake.
Note: If unexpected weight loss suddenly occurs, especially accompanied by diarrhea or loss of appetite that is difficult to relieve, you need to go to the hospital for examination as soon as possible.
During the remission period of dealing with weight loss, weight gain may need to be given priority, but attention should be paid to it in a healthy and reasonable way.
