Hi please help me. I suffer from severe anxiety that's debilitating. I'm 19 and female and very healthy with no family history of any disease except diabetes (which I am negative for). Okay. So I had a normal colored solid BM and I noticed a red flake in the stool. I picked it out and smeared in on a tissue paper. It didn't stain at all and it was hard like plastic. Like the flakes that get stuck in your teeth when you eat popcorn. I tried washing it with water and it stayed solid. What could this be? Can blood in stool be solid like plastic? I did eat a ton of tomatoes two nights ago and a lot of red kimchi yesterday morning. Thanks for your help.
