Graphic Anal Questions- Please Help
I have finally been to see a Dr, he referred to my blood work from last March and said everything was fine.
Unfortunately I do not have health insurance and so I have no choice but to see him, I think he is a bit of a joke.
I haven't told him yet (he has explanations for everything), but since the middle of November I have been bleeding from my bum during BMs. I can not tell if it is mixed in my stool or if it is just on the surface. Sometimes I have thin stools, and it hurts when I have a BM, even when they are very thin. I think I have a tear and that is what is bleeding, because it hurts at the anus. It is bright red blood. Sometimes my stool is a chocolaty-maroon color. It feels like I always have stool in there, but I can tell when I really have to go and when I just have a full feeling. I can not tell if I have hemroids or not, although on one side there is a little bump under the anus, it is just pink and smooth. Is that a hemroid? It doesn't have a tear, or look like it bleeds from there either. Or is that a anal tear?
Okay, also sometimes I get a knawing burning pain in my stomache, it is relieved by eating and then it comes back after a little while. It is not frequent, but once it starts it last for about 2-3 days. It comes and go between "episodes".
Any suggestions? What should I tell my Dr when I see him again? I may wait until I have health insurance and can find my own Dr.
