HiI've been having some unusual bowel movements recently. For just over 2 weeks, my stools have been like pebbles, but I've been secreting dark red mucus like goo from my bottom. I'm seem to be full of gas and my tummy is bloated and hard. I never feel like my bowels have emptied and when I need to go - I need to go - there's no choice. I can't pass gas without some leakage and my stomach often grumbles and churns quite loudly. I've not lost my appetite as such, no weight loss, occasional nausea. My diet has always been healthy, no processed or fast food and I don't eat red milk. I only drink light beer. I do not have anal sex. Please advise.
