Since 2014 I've had on and off blood in stool, mostly cause of overpushing or slight pain in the rectum. I recently went to the doctor a few weeks ago about it since I was ignorant first hand and didn't go earlier. A rectam exam was done and occult blood was found. I did have several blood tests over the years. No problems. No chronic constipation or wet loose stools. Otherwise the usual (eat bad food) slip-ups. Had cat scans over the years, no masses found. I'm overweight but I have no fatigue issues or abdominal pain. My mother has hemorriods, and I've had abscesses in the anal area before and inflamed skin.(I have hidradenitis suppurativa)
I'm working on getting a colonoscopy, I switched my diet to a more fiber-rich diet, haven't had blood in the stool at all. Feel a lot better besides a weird pressure on the left side of my stomach and upper backside, no pain just weird pressure. Has anyone else dealt with this? Or any idea what it could be?
