Diarrhea earlier, now blood and mucus but no stool
I woke up this morning and had awful cramping and diarrhea. I have diarrhea often (maybe once a week) and this was the most painful cramping I've ever experienced. I was actually crying out loud. I had 3 bowl movements total with diarrhea and severe cramping and took some Imodium Ad, then crawled back into bed. I woke up about an hour later and had the immediate urge to use the bathroom again. But this time the was only bright red blood and mucus that came out. There is still cramping but not a severe. This has happened 3 more times since. I'm wondering what could cause this and if i should go into urgent care or wait until I can get an appointment with my doctor, which at the earliest will be in 2 days. thanks!
