Do Bleeding Gums And Black Stools Have Anything In Common

The end of a bowel movement and the stools are soft. I do have some hemorrhoids but they do not seem sore. Concerned?
Possibilities...: Blood in stool is a warning sign. Causes of bleeding may be predictable (e.G rectal trauma, fissure, hemorrhoids with straining), but evaluation is always appropriate. A rule of thumb (but not absolute): black stool means bleeding comes from upper GI tract; grape jelly stool from small bowel; silver stool from biliary tree; burgundy stool from right colon; red blood from left colon to anus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I'm going to barium enema next week with that I have black stools and blood black and sometimes red stools.What are the complications of examination?
Not many: However i don't believe given your symptoms that this is the most appropriate test. A colonoscopy and possible upper endoscopy will be more accurate, more comfortable and possibly therapeutic. See a GI doctor to get confirmation before putting yourself thru an inadequate exam that may not provide you the answer you are looking for. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My lips become black, dark purple-blue; accompanied by stomach pain.. Does it have anything to do with my long periods of not eating?
The lips are a: "red herring" i would say. Ibuprofin not good if having stomach pain, meet to try something for stomach acid like tagament or zantac. I assume you have regular headaches, thus ibuprofin, on sertraline but still not sleeping well? You may be clinching teeth at night making headaches worse, if so low dose Clonazepam may help. Try tylenol, (acetaminophen) get on acid reducer, Prilosec otc if can afford. Gd luc. ...Read more

Can bright red blood with feces on TP after wiping loose stools, be anything to worry about, could this have anything to do with gallbladder?
Bleeding per rectum: Yes, certainly it is something to worry about. I would recommend seeing a gastroenterologist. Mostly commonly it could be due to hemorrhoids or diverticulosis but other causes such as a crohn’s colitis, colon cancer and ulcerative colitis can also cause this condition.
