Rectal bleeding: I am not sure blood out of your rectum is related to chills, fever, and headaches or may be coincidence. If they are related, you will need to start with a thorough physical exam and history and probably initial work up such as complete blood count, chemistry profile. You may need more indepth tests such as abdominal ct or/and colonoscopy.
