| | freaked out - lots of bright red blood and pain
I'm pretty freaked out at this moment and am seeking information.
For the last several years, I've had intermittent blood in my stool. It was rare in occurence and not a lot of blood. It usually accompanied straining.
For the last two months, I've had many, many occurences of the blood in my stool. It hurts so bad to have a bm that I literally cry and shake every time. I feel a ripping/burning pain, and now, there is a LOT of bright red blood. There is blood on the toilet paper, in the fecal matter, and in the toilet. I've also had blood leak onto my underpants.
Over the last few months, I've also had very frequent (after every single meal) episodes of diahhrea. It's up to four and five times a day now. It's to the point that I've had to leave work twice now to change clothes during the day. It's very embarassing.
Now, I am wondering if anybody has experienced this. I do know the standard answer. . . call your doctor, and I have. I was first set up for a colonoscopy on December 16, but I had to cancel when a relapse in my multiple sclerosis made me need high dosages of steroids. Then, I was rescheduled for January 16th. That is, until yesterday, when my doctor's office called to reschedule, yet again, to January 30th.
I'm so freaked out about waiting.
Oh, also, I'm female, 28, and I just had a baby in September.
