Bowel problems

Hello. My name is Tatiana. I am 21 years of age. Since my early teens I have developed some stomach(or bowels) problems. Stomach cramps,constant diarrhoea(about 4-5 years),bloating,gas,upset stomach,anaemia(since I was a child) and most recently I discovered blood in my stool. My doctor have taken several test and couldn't find what is wrong with me. Now I am waiting my turn to going to the hospital for colonoscopy.Doctors never took me seriously before,because i was very young. I can't eat anything,because I need to go to the toilet straight away with upset stomach and I am not gaining any weight. I am roughly about 45-50 kg of weight. Waiting is a torture. Could you please tell me what it could be and how serious ? I would be very grateful to hear from you.
I am looking forward to hear from you,

Hello Tatiana,

I would like to welcome you to the EmpowHER community and thank you for reaching out to us with your health concern.

A colonoscopy and evaluation by a gastroenterologist will ensure a proper diagnosis. Based on your symptoms, this sounds like ulcerative colitis.

Tatiana, you can read up on this condition by visiting this website's "Ulcerative Colitis' resource page.

Please keep us updated.
