Hi. This is a problem that my mother is experiencing.Soon after eating she will have an urgency to rush to the bathroom. She eliminates gas and sometimes a very small BM (like the size of an olive pit) even though it feels like a lot more should have been eliminated.Sometimes there is diarreha with blood. There are days when this does not occur though.Does anyone know what this might be? She thinks it may be a hemrroid because she has had problems with them in the past.

The blood should be checked out, especially if we are talking mixed in the diarrhea rather than a few spots on the outside of stool.The other symptoms seem to match a lot of what happens for some IBSers in that they can have rectal hypsersensitivity (urgency and the amount you go doens't match the amount you feel like you have to go. Basically the rectum gives full to bursting need to go now signals when it has just a little bit in it).Also after meals everyone's colon moves things along. IBSers often have problems with this normal post-meal increase in colon activity and may need to use the bathroom shortly after or sometimes even near the end of a meal before they finish eating.
