Had another incident today following a fairly normal/easy bowel movement. The bleeding didn't start during or immediately after the movement, it seems like the wiping process caused it. As usual it was bright red and probably less than a teaspoon worth. It's just so frightening and since I've been diagnosed with external piles I don't know if I'm supposed to just put it down to that. My habits have been fairly normal lately. What do other sufferers think?
