HI,
THIS CAN BE OCCULT BLOOD ARISING FROM UPPER GASTRO INTESTINAL TRACT.
ALONG WITH COLONOSCOPY,UPPER GASTRO INTESTINAL ENDOSCOPY IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Colonoscopy is v imp , to check what’s going on , CBC and stool analysis should be done,
Have u been examined for piles???= the blood in stool is it fresh or black , is it streaking the stool or inside the stool ,? Do u feel pain in defecation or not??

Hi
Pain that go away after bleeding points to diverticulosis , however I need more details about the bleeding colour and state is it white or dark ?
I recommend a barium enema x ray
Good Luck

Hi..
Thanks for the query..

It looks like bleeding is from the upper G.I track..
Get colonoscopy done as soon as possible to rule out the cause so that it can be managed accordingly.,

Hope this helps..

As of now avoid taking heavy meals and please do not take painkillers without consent from your Physician.

The long history of pain and bleeding can indicate diverticulitis or celiac disease, is the color of the blood bright or black and is it over the stool or embedded inside?
