Need EVAL: Blood from the rectum/in stool is NEVER normal. Get an eval asap with a GI dr. Best wishes.

See your doctor: Proctalgia fugax is idiopathic rectal or anal pain without underlying pathology. Any other cause would need to be ruled out, especially in light of your recent bleeding, which could indicate a different diagnosis. Good luck.
