Could it be hemorrhoids?
OK --in Dec/ 2007 I started having blood in my stools.
It started with just it showing up in the toilet paper and then it progressed to the whole entire bowl filled with blood.
My bf told me it could be hemorrhoids and to just not try and strain. So, I did and it went away.
Then starting in Nov/2008 started having problems again. I would have this feeling that I desperately needed to go to the bathroom, but when i went, nothing. basically,tenesmus. I would probably visit my bathroom 8 times a day but only use it once. I decided to go to the ER, after severe stomach cramps
I was put on polyethylene glycol for a month, but it didn't really help, it just caused more of a thinner stool.
I've read that sometimes hemorrhoids can give you an 'unempty rectal feeling'.
Has anyone experienced something like this?
