Blood blisters, bloody mucus, red sores.... please help

For more than 12months I have been getting ongoing repetitive flare ups of issues. They include intense blood blisters in the mouth, blood and mucus after a bowel movement (the time I use the bathroom after a movement), red sores on my neck and thighs, runny ear (and infections, burst eardrum), bloating, runny eyes, tiredness, unable to use the bathroom and then diohrea, and so many more issues.  I am at my wits end having been to specialist gastro/liver who just put me on resotrans and sent me off.  I have had a colonoscopy but as the pico prep didn't work on time I had to have an enema prior so they couldnt really see the whole way ( it worked after the procodure resulting an in extremely horrible evening!).  I have been tested for coeliac, diabetes - all negative and a naturapath has suggested gluten free but with no real improvement.  I feel doctors shove me out the door as soon as I say I have anxiety/depression and I just get put in a box.  I have tried to be taken seriously but I just keep getting passed from doctor to doctor and it's really doing my head in.  Any advice  - please smile

      Thank you - yea, I start talking about my symptoms and they stop me and ask what the main concern is, I tell them I think I burst my eardrum also, they check - yep, burst eardrum and give me antibiotics and send me off! My Natropath has put me on a heap of sups, including zinc, viit d etc - not sure about B12 - will have to check.  I have heavy metals too - high levels of Cadmium (no idea why!!) and copper.  The colonoscopy only went to the Splenic Flexture, so really dint tell me anything sad , yet, he sent me off and dint bother telling me I needed to come back.  Thanks - certainly going to check that B12, thank you smile

      Hi elisabeth88

      Yes do get your B12 checked because low B12 causes tiredness as you have mentioned as one of your symptoms..if your B12 gets very low it could lead to pernicious anemia which is very dangerous...get it checked asap...best wishes..

      Hi elisabeth88

      When you visit your doc for B12 test ask him/her about Angina Bullosa Heamorrhagica.....they are blood blisters in the mouth...google it....

    Have you been tested for IBD such as Crohns? It can cause blood and mucus with diarrhoea if it is in your bowel. Sometimes you can get Crohns in your upper digestive tract too and this causes mouth ulcers. A colonoscopy would show it up.

      Yea, they did some sort of test but as I get the blood/mucus without a bowel movement (It comes out automatically the next time I pee) I am not sure how accurate it would be.  The colonoscopy only went up to the splenic flexture as the bowel prep didn't work (I followed it exactly) and they had to do an edema on the morning of the opp (mind you, as soon as the opp was over I was running to the bathroom!!)  - thinking I will have to get another colonoscopy and tell them what happened last time and see whether they think I should start the prep earlier to be sure. Thanks for the advice smile
