Hello. I welcome you to icliniq.
I can understand you might have terrible time because of your condition.
The quantity of blood is very important to understand before a list of diagnosis can be made. Since you said it is heavier, and that all started 5 days back, it seem most commonly due to acute large bowel infection. Some parasites and some bacterial can causes inflammation of the large bowel and bleeding. I suggest you some treatment at the moment, and want that you should get following blood and stool tests, and inform me in 3 days about your condition. The investigation will give us clue and we can better narrow down list of differentials.
Meanwhile make sure you take only home cooked meals, take plenty of boiled or mineral water. Stomach tightness are rather non specific symptoms, can occur if large bowel is inflamed. I hope this will help
