    Do not ignore these symptoms,  you may have colitis or chrohns.  A gluten free diet may help or certain medicines.  You need to see a GI (gastro intestinal) doctor after your GP (general practioner) . Insist that they see you,  I hope you feel better!

    I had the same symptoms for 15 years 20 years ago. I was finally diagnosed with ulcerative collitis and precancerous tissue in my colon.  I found much relief by using a product from the Melaluca Tea tree oil company that was intended for use as a female yeast infection treatment. I used it as an enema which give me almost instant relief and stopped the bleeding for a while.  I also eliminated sugar and caffeine from my diet which also helped. I think if I had used the enema earlier I would not have ended up needing the surgery to remove my colon. None of the prescribed medications helped me at all and I had bad side effects from some of the prescribed meds especially the steroids. I don't know if they still do the kind of surgery I had, It was called illial anal pull through. Which removed my large intestine except for the sigmoid colon which they removed the mucosa lining from and used some of my small intestines to reline it and make what they called a J pouch which basically made a new digestive system for me. It was a two surgery process with the use of an illiostomy for 6 months while the J pouch healed.That was over 20 years ago and I am now over 70 years old and in relatively good health with no colon cancer. My body has adapted to the changes in my digestive system and I have used vitamins to help ensure I get the nutrients my body needs. I have had to learn a different way of caring for my digestive system but it has been easier than dealing with ulcerative colitis. The last 20 years of my life have been much better than the previous 15 prior to the surgery.

    If you are going to the loo multiple times, you may have developed fissures or haemorrhoids which can cause bright red blood.  However, see your doctor immediately for tests.  Crohns and ulcerative colitis is inflammation of your bowel (IBD) and is not cancer. A fecal calprotectin test looks for inflammation.  If it was very high, a colonoscopy would be done to confirm IBD..  Don't worry; wait to see what your doctor says first.  Keep a food diary to see if any food is causing your symptoms in the meantime.
