I'm Scared And I Need Help !!!

Posted , 6 users are following.

I'm 16 and I've been having some weird symptoms , it all started around last December where I went to the toilet and I noticed some streaks of blood on my stool , I was completely freaking out I told my close friend who was with me and she said it was probably related to being on my period.

Then in February it happened again except it went on for about 2 weeks and I was so scared that I never told my parents . (At this point in  time I had no other symptoms apart from blood on stool) .

It then came back on my birthday (June)  first it was the streaks of blood but it began to get heavier and I'm now at the point were I having bad stomach cramps, occasional  diarrhoea (about twice since June) , going to the toilet about 3 times a day , bloating , mucus and blood in the toilet bowl .

I've become so scared that I might be dying that I'm too scared to tell my parents.  

I would really appreciate any advice or suggestions of whats wrong. Thank you

    First stop is your GP, asap. Worrying will only make matters worse. GP will have it investigated. Possibly nothing to worry about really, but any blood loss has to be investigated! Make appointment now! That's my advice to you, good luck!

    Don't be scared.  There is no need to tell your parents.  Make an appointment to see your doctor, don't worry about being embarrassed he/she wil have talked about this problem hundreds of times.

    It sounds like you may have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and if it is that then worrying may make it worse.

    Dont buy medication from the chemist (I have made that mistake in the past) see your doctor and get it checked out and then you will have the correct treatment for what's wrong.

    Stop worrying and talking to friends who cannot help, see your doctor and put your mind at rest.

    Take care.

    Why haven't you told your mum when this first happenend ? Why have you left it ? Then with your mum go visit your Dr . Probably nothing ,and worrying won't sort it out . Go tell your mum. Or even an aunt . That's my advice to you . Do it now . To young at 16 to have this worrying you .

    I have the same issue and I have Crohn's disease, but that doesn't mean you have it. You need to let your parents know about it and go to the doctor. They will probably order a colonoscopy to be done in order to find out where the bleeding is coming from. If you have Crohn's or Ulcerative Colitis, remember it isn't the end of the world and you will be fine once they find a medication that works for you. Don't ignore it any more. I did that and it landed me in the hospital. Remember you will be fine, ok. Don't worry just get it fixed.

    Hi Sarah. My name is also Sarah. Please tell your parents right away and get to a doctor to have it checked out. Don't put it off. No you're not dying but don't put it off. Your parents are your best friends. Hugs.

    I went to the doctor last week and I told the doctor about my symptoms and he told me it didn't sound like Ucleritive colitis or anything like that he pressed down on my intestines and said it felt fine . He put me on antibiotics and said it sounded like an infection he also gave me duscopan for the cramps.

    A week later and it's still the same I'm going back on Monday for a check up but I'm really nervous as I thought it would be resolved. Thanks for your help x
