Hi everyone I hope all of you find your health back . Prayers for everyone dealing with health issues. I’m 28 years old I started in February having diarrhea. I received a CT scan said I had mild irritation in my colon. They gave me 2 antibiotics together. The diarrhea stopped. Then the bleeding began it’s now mostly every week I will have about 1 or 2 episodes of blood. Sometimes mixed with the stool other times it’s just blood. I’ve been really stressed and nervous. Thinking the worst. I’m currently in the emergency room. I’m here to get answers I can’t keep guessing or assuming it’s hemorrhoids. Please take care of your health.! Don’t put your mind through all that stress. If your in the process of getting your health back you have all my support. I hope all goes well today here and if it doesn’t. All we can do is fight. Fight to regain our health back. Peace and love to you all. I’ll repost when I find out what they say. As we all know this isn’t sometimes just a quick solution it might take many doctors but the important thing is to heal.

Dear AnonymousSupport ,Thank you for posting and I'm sorry to read about the symptoms and anxiety. While we ALWAYS encourage going to the emergency room if you are experiencing a medical emergency, you are going to want to see a specialist.

The anxiety from not knowing what is going on in your body can be very intense, and unfortunately, our GI systems are very sensitive to stress. Much easier for me to say to try to relax, than to actually do it, I know!

It is so good to read that you are committed to getting answers and not just assuming hemorrhoids, but getting examined and having tests run.

Please let us know what they said at the emergency room and what your next steps are.

We're here for you.
