Hello I'm Jazmin f/23 and new to the community
Yesterday I passed a small clot in my stool. I visited the doctor that same day to set up a trip to the GI, and it slipped my mind to mention this clot to my doctor.
I've been experiencing bloated symptoms for about a year now that I always chalked up to just drinking a lot of diet soda. I've recently cut out diet soda these past few days and experience little to no bloating anymore.
Other than bloat my symptoms have been fatigue, and bad sleep. My stress over my symptoms have been making it harder to sleep as well.
I'm underweight (due to an eating disorder) and have a hard time gaining/ keeping weight up, and frequently have hemorrhoids. I have had blood in stool but rarely, I only started to bleed again as of Sunday, Monday, and today. (That could be just due hemorrhoids though.)
I've experienced no change in appetite.
I've been quite stressed these past few days, and reading up symptoms online has only made it more difficult. I have had no clots today, just bright red blood that appears to be from my hemorrhoid.
Is my worry justified? And have any of you experienced something similar? What can I expect from A GI meeting? Thank you for reading my post, and take care.
