I have a lot of stomach pain when i eat and recently blood in my stool, do I have ulcers?

Possibly: This situation requires immediate attention. See your doctor asap. If you have none, consider an er visit. An ulcer will not cause red blood in the stool. That is a lower GI problem. Ulcers cause black or tarry stools. ...Read more

Diet, probiotics: If there is no blood, no severe pain or severe watery diarrhea, medical tests have been normal, and you have stress & poor diet, you can try taking a probiotic (capsule supplement of normal health gut bacteria "acidophilus" and others) twice a day, eat a bland diet, avoid alcohol, caffeine and tobacco, and work on reducing stress. Dr victor sierpina's "healthy gut workbook" is a great resource too. ...Read more

Other entities to rule in or out based on your history are behcet's, lupus, and crohn's. A variety of remedies, from changing your toothpaste to dissolving a cortisol tablet on the lesion, are all worth trying. The best pain relief is still viscous lidocaine. Good luck. ...Read more

I have ulcers they haven't acted up since I was like 12. I went to the bathroom and when I wiped there was a little bit of blood. Ulcers or pregnant?

I have ulcers they haven't acted up since I was like 12. I went to the bathroom and when I wiped there was a little bit of blood. Ulcers or pregnant?

Neither: Looks like you are early in pregnancy. Typically bleeding when you wipe your rectum would be a sign of hemorrhoids. Ulcers usually happen up in your bowel or stomach and do not normally cause small bits of blood on the TP. If you were actually wiping urine and had blood, I would be worried about a UTI. Either way, not normal just for being pregnant, so let your doc know what is going on. ...Read more
