Dear customer, What you are having are serious symptoms which require an examination by a doctor. These could be due to inflammatory bowel disease, malignancy or due an infection. Your doctor may also suggest colonoscopy to diagnose the exact cause. After knowing the cause with specific treatment your symptoms will decrease and early diagnosis will prevent complications. Take care.
