On Monday, I went to have a BM. After finishing, I noticed a decent amount of blood on the paper. Alarmed, I went to the ER. They told me that it's probably a hemorrhoid and sent me home with hydrocortisone cream. I've been using the cream twice a day with no improvement.
On Thursday, I passed what seemed like congealed blood. I also noticed that my stools were bloody and there was blood in the toilet. I went back to the ER. They did a rectal exam and blood work. They told me that it's probably an internal hemorrhoid and told me that I would need to see a GI doctor. Went to see the GI, today (Friday). They were unhelpful and, instead, referred me to another GI whom I cannot even call to get an appointment with until Monday.
Thursday evening and Friday morning (this morning), I attempted to have a BM but passed no stool and only bled. Still passing congealed blood.
The bleeding is moderate. It mostly occurs during a BM or an attempt to have a BM. It's not gushing out, but does drip out. In between attempts, there may be a little spotting but nothing significant. The blood is bright red, with the congealed blood being a darker red. There is no black blood, tarry stools, or passing of "coffee grounds." Stools, aside from being bloody, are a normal brown.
I'm 24, male, and otherwise healthy. This has never happened before.
I'm terrified and don't know what to do.
