So for the past two and a half weeks I have been on vacation and experienced a lot of discomfort with digestion. I first started having blood in my stool and then it progressed to blood and what looked like mucus and diarrhea. I had no problems at first but then I started experiencing a lot of abdominal discomfort and had to go to the bathroom about every 20 minutes. It was kind of uncontrollable and a bit embarrassing. I went on a fast and since then have only been eating fruits and vegetables until I feel better.
I went on a dairy and gluten free diet before my vacation and stopped before I left. Could the discomfort I have been experiencing be a result of my diet change?
(And also, I'm 18)
