The space inside that tube , the lumen, is considered to be outside of the body. When we bleed into that space ...Read more

Throwing up, blood in stool , pain underneath my right side of the rib cage in the back and some time blood in my throw up ?

Exam needed: These are serious symptoms and require urgent evaluation in the hospital emergency room. There is the possibility that hemorrhaging can become massive. If you have hemorrhagic gastritis, black bowel movements would result. Vomiting and defecating red blood would indicate simultaneous bleeding from both upper and lower gi tracts which is most unusual. Go to the hospital emergency room now for exam ...Read more

Had a total thyroidectomy due to cancer. Now have pain on right side above chest with bloody stool and throwing up blood. Is the cancer causing it?

Had a total thyroidectomy due to cancer. Now have pain on right side above chest with bloody stool and throwing up blood. Is the cancer causing it?

Seems unlikely: Hi. Was your thyroid cancer treated (surgery, radioactive iodine, TSH suppression)? What is your thyroglobulin (stimulated, and with TSH suppressed)? Not clear where your pain is; is it in the neck? Can you feel a mass? I think I can pretty well guarantee you that vomiting blood and having bloody stool have nothing to do with thyroid cancer. See your doc about the bloody vomit & stool & neck pain. ...Read more

Is a very small amount of blood in stool bad?

Is a very small amount of blood in stool bad?

Depends: We risk stratify all symptoms. We put together a puzzle to include age, is blood bright red or not, is it actually in or on the stool or on the tissue or toilet bowl or all. Is it only with a movement, is there pain or protrusion with that movement. Finally, most providers would recommend at least an office rectal exam. It is rare but too many people assume it is not serious and miss a cancer ...Read more

Is there a multivitamin to take to make you hungry ? Or eat more. Haven't been eating due to stress and thinking blood in stool and bad headaches

Is there a multivitamin to take to make you hungry ? Or eat more. Haven't been eating due to stress and thinking blood in stool and bad headaches

No: Multivitamins don't do that in the U.S. But, if a person takes the kids' gummy vitamins, he can chew 4-6 of them each day to add up to an adult dose. Because they taste like candy, they are likely to make him want more candy, Gummy Bears, chocolate, or snack foods. This is not a nutritious way to do things, but is likely the only way any multivitamin can make a person want to eat something else ...Read more

What are good over-the-counter meds for IBS with constapation my constapation goes away then comes back also have bad gas no blood in stool i'm 28?

If an episode of constipation occurs one then uses a fleets enema as needed. In years past older people with sever constipation went to a clinic for high colonic enemas. The practice has essentially stopped. ...Read more

I have blood in stool with a discharge, what do you recommend?

Rectal exam: Blood in stool is a sequelae of a rectal problem, either bleeding hemmorhoids or a bleeding growth or rectal fissure. Either could cause bleeding with or without pain. Discharge from the rectal would suggest some form of inflammatory process, but if discharge is from vagina in the case of a female patient, the two would be unrelated. ...Read more

I have blood in stool. I've had 4 colonoscopy. Negative results. Had diverticulitis before. What could my problem be?

Maybe not colonic...: Evaluation is always appropriate for re-bleeding from the gut. Black stool often means bleeding 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 anal canal. Any accompanying symptoms? Do you take NSAID's, over-use alcohol, smoke tobacco, have other risks (AVM's for example)--lots to consider. ...Read more

On occasion I have blood in stool every few months. Tonight i wiped a little hard a immediately there was blood. I do have hemroids.

Rectal blood: Bright red blood on toilet paper or dripping in the bowel is usually hemorrhoids or a fissure. Hemorrhoids are usually sore but not exquisitely painful unless thrombosed (in which case you'll feel a tender hard lump). Fissures usually are extremely tender. Persistent bleeding, blood mixed in the stool or coating the outside should be checked asap for a serious condition. ...Read more
