Blood in stool???

Posted , 2 users are following.

Recently, I noticed some blood in my stool and pain in my rectal region throughout the day. I've always been a bit on the constipated side but never experienced anything like this. Also, I've been dealing with upper abdominal discomfort for four months now which the doctor diagnosed as gastritis and been on pantoprazole for months but I stopped taking them last week. I'm really worried over this and can't help but think the worse. I'm a 20 year old female with no other health complications apart from these mentioned above.

Please help!!!

      yeah this really is awful. doctors just prescribe medications that keep the symptoms in check and the minute i try to skip/stop the dose, i end up in hell. it just doesn't heal and i would just about take anything over this
