I've had bright red blood coming from my rectum for a week and have been able to feel my blood pressure dropping at times. What could this be?

G.I. Bleed...: Possibly a medical emergency. Fresh red blood coming from the rectum is always a cause for concern. Hemorrhoids would be a common cause, but other things, such as ulcers, blood vessel malformations, or cancerous lesions should be ruled out--especially given your feeling of "blood pressure drop." This should be evaluated immediately with vital signs, physical exam, possible labs, and other testing. ...Read more

Any reason why I have painful pressure in my rectum when I sit down & also sends pain to my stomach? Could it be related to ov? Its not consten

Rectal pressure: Usually would be related to hemorrhoids, occurs in sedentary positions. Can be fissures. Or abscess. Constipation could also be a cause. You feel it in your " stomach" because the colon is actually high up behind the stomach. Rarely could be ovarian mass or endometriosis (more likely back pain).
