Re: blood in stools
Yes and no.
Are you having any other symptoms with it such as severe cramping? Is your stool itself very foul smelling and dark or tarry? Do you have a fever or severe cramps?
If so you need seen ASAP, as in go to the ER.
If not, if stools appear normal and you are maybe just constipated it could be a hemmoroidal (sp) problem or a slight tear, but it surely deems checked, especially if it happens again.
You may want to give your prescribing doctor a quick call, even if they are not currently open to be sure that he/she is aware of and can advise you better.
Colitis and Irritable Bowel Syndrome in addition to Hemerhoids can also cause a similar problem. Especially Colitis, it does in fact form this mucous around the stools when it acts up, but is generally not bloody unless accompanied by constipation which may cause a tear.
