i have had some form of rectal bleeding for about 2 yrs give or take. it started out very minor. i would see some blood on the toilet paper. the frequency wasn't an issue either. i thought that i was just passing something more than i could handle causing me to tear.
it gradually became more blood to the point where the water would be red like i was dripping blood, and the toilet paper looked like someone had a nose bleed.
only up until recently have i been kind of freaked out. (stupid, i know. we all like to believe we are invincible, right?
) now i am bleeding quite a bit. and it is far more frequent. and within the past few weeks i have even passed what look like blood clots (not dark, but bright red clots of blood) and i've had blood in my stool.
until the blood in my stool, i figured i just have had internal hemorrhoids. i am unsure if this is a symptom or not. i realize i need to go see my doctor because this isn't a substitute for the real thing. i guess i am just hoping for a insight in the meantime. anyone have any thoughts?
