Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi, Thanks for your question. I'm Dr. Hasan and I'll try to help you.
Since how long you have this?
Do you have fever?
Where exactly are the stomach cramps? upper, middle or lower abdomen? Right left or mid?
Please enter the chat to proceed.
Stomach cramps are lower but they only with the diahorreah. Had it for about an hour after I ate some corn and chicken, cramps are all over lower abdomen but gone now, no fever have taken a diahorreah pill just blood is concerning
Is that fresh blood and what is the quantity?
yes its fresh blood no idea about quantity maybe a tablespoon?
I've had blood before from anal fissure but it doesn't' feel like anal fissure tear
Have you got this blood after the stool or it was mixed with the stool?
also I've had a colonoscopy
i think it was after the stool
So there is no pain associated with blood?
i mean no pain while passing stool?
no i just had normal diahorreah pain
no no pain passing stool
well a bit sore and burning but not anal fissure pain
You got it how many times?
I've had diahrreah three times in last hour or so but last time with blood
i have no cramps now
What are your diagnosed medical problems and any medications you are on?
no problems and no meds
they suspected an anal fissure but did a colonoscopy just to be sure
Thanks a lot for your input. I am really sorry to hear about your problem.
am i about to die
it says on internet blood is life threatening?
As per symptoms this blood can be due to intestinal infection called colitis or it can be due to a condition called diverticulitis.
No not at all
You are not having anything seious.
yes like my dogs get the same
vet gives them antibiotics
Blood just in last one hour, with normal colonoscopy in the past mean that nothing serious is likely.
Specially anything life threatening is out of question.
I assure you and give you my words for that.
ok thank you
Please don't stress yourself.
any suggestions how to treat it
And don't worry I will address your question in two aspects; what you can do yourself and what your doctor can do for you. As far as what you can do yourself is concerned in such situations first of all drink Gatorade and other liquids to keep you hydrated.
Eat BRAT diet, it means banana, rice, apple sauce and toast.
Avoid anti diarrhoeal medicines.
They can keep the waste matter inside to worsen the infection.
oh no i just took one
Moreover for pain, take OTC tab Tylenol thrice daily.
Over the counter pepto Bismol twice daily is helpful too.
Lastly i would suggest you to visit your doctor now or you can go to emergency room to get an evaluation for infection.
You may need antibiotics.
But there is no need to stress yourself in between.
can it wait until tomorrow its late here now
If you don't visit emergency room for any reason or if you can't do it then at least keep following the above measures.
Yes if you don't get bleeding again you can wait.
But ideally should go now.
You are most welcome.
My best wishes and prayers for you :)
