Hi all just seeing if it's happened to everyone yesterday my bms was perfect couldn't fault it then at tea time I had steak sandwiches the steak was rare and I am known to swallow not chew my food and this morning I felt constipated so I pushed came out brown and it should but when I wipe there was blood darker than usual could that be down to the steak being rare or just pushing to hard cause now it's spasming no pain ? I have done a stool sample recently and came back clear and this instent it was a one off but because my health anxiety it's caused to try Google and I know it's a sin

Hi there - has your gp checked for hemarroids or anal fissure? These are very much the main cause of bleeding. I strongly think for peace of mind you need to see a friendly gp who you feel comfortable with. I have this problem - piles in my case - and it was only a one minute exam followed by an effective course of suppositories . I now use a squatty potty which helps - check out my recent post. But it is important to rule out other causes first and bleeding must be identified by a professional. Hope that helps. Try not to worry in the meantime as constipation most likely cause.
I would say it the steak.
I was told by gasto and colon specialist not to eat beef as it doesn’t digest through body well and when i think back to all my severe ibs flares it was always beef that started it.
Plus if it was rareish there b blood in it so u prob just getting rid of it.
I had a scare once with beetroot ha ha i thought i was bleeding then realised id eaten beetroot
I suffer from IBS-C, and don't eat red meat anymore. I used to eat Steak sandwiches, Filet mignon, Hamburgers, but then I could not eat that anymore, as it is very hard on digestive system. I tend to go for softer foods. Red meat, It's really hard to digest, takes several days and unfortunately very constipating. Is there any way to cut back a little on Red meat? Especially rare? Maybe do some Chicken, or Tuna..something like that, and are if your movements are more regular?
Thankyou all glad I found people who care and in the same boat as me it's really assuring
