    I had bleeding from piles and it was found after a sigmoidoscopy. No pain.

    My son has severe ulcerative colitis. He has been in severe pain with all the rest of the symptoms of this awful ****ing disease. So I guess if it is severe you'd know it.

    Can't do this anymore...

    Hi everyone
    I am still struggling with my symptoms. The doctor told me he is sure it is ibs and internal hemorrhoids or fissure. I don't believe it anymore. It has been a few days over a month...blood almost everytime I go.going multiple times a day. My stool will go back to almost normal for a bit then the next time I go it is loose again.its all I think about.i made an appointment to go back to the doctor. It's in a few days. But I cry everyday...I sobbed in the bathroom yesterday for twenty minutes. I am done with it.i know I have a disease or cancer...I had this before a few times but never for over a month.usually for two weeks maybe three...I can't think ,I can't eat, I keep getting these nervous zaps in my stomach. I don't know what I expect by writing it here.i just feel alone.

    You don't know you have anything nasty, you have no way of knowing this.

    You need to tell your doctor about these symptoms, and explain how much they're distressing you. There are any number of non-serious explanations, though, not least the extent to which stress is affecting your digestion.

    I know stress is affecting it to some degree.i go more when I think about it etc.But,I don't know I keep thinking of my kids going back to school and me starting chemo, or having a pouch put in.I am so stressed out I cry so much.i have had HA forever but this seems different. I never thought I would be willing to talk about poop to random people(nice random people)
    I am desperate for this to end. I am telling myself that I have had this in the past....really did turn out to be what the doctor said. Cancer doesn't go away and return right?
    And uc or crohns doesn't just go away without treatment right? I don't know what to make of it but I can't believe the doctor. I am thinking of going to the emergency.
    But I don't know if they would help me.
    If I tell them ,no pain,no fever, possibly an internal hemmorrhoid blood change in bowel movement but stressed.....it doesn't sound like much.but it must be.it isn't right for me.

    Unfortunately, all that's said about you knowing your body best goes out of the window when health anxiety enters the picture. It makes you believe things that are patently untrue.

    As hard as it sounds, you need to place your trust in the medical professionals, as they have the training, the experience and the rationality to make the appropriate decisions.

    I really know how it feels, I've been experiencing similar symptoms for over a year now, I saw a specialist and he performed an exam and said he saw a hemorrhoid

    It's only just starting to sink in that maybe he's right, I'm 18, the odds of having bowel cancer under the age of 50 are very low

    You need to calm down, take a breath and stop checking. I know it's difficult, I have trouble following that advice myself but when you put it into practice, it helps MASSIVELY- also don't Google. I stopped Googling completely and it's the best thing I've done all year

    Blood isn't the be all and end all, it's not as black and white as you may think, the odds of you having cancer are probably 1/1000, first there are like 50 other conditions to eliminate before even thinking of cancer

    I know it's so difficult living with this, but you CAN get through it. Try and get some therapy too, to teach your mind not to think like this and to think a little more rationally before jumping to the worst case scenario- I'm like it too, we all are on here, but it IS possible to get better
