Yesterday I had a BM and didn't notice any pain or anything. There was a little more strain, but nothing out of this world, like I wasn't gritting my teeth trying to push it out. Just a little strain. Well, I happened to look down and noticed streaks of blood on my stool. When I wiped there was a pretty good amount of blood on the tissue. I've had hemorrhoids before, and they hurt like hell. This only burned a little bit after I used the bathroom, and then it went away.
I've had bleeding down there before, and without even going to the doctor I assumed they were anal fissures or hemorrhoids. They eventually went away. It feels different this time, though. There was hardly any pain aside from the slight burning. I left a message for my doctor but he wasn't able to get back to me.
Just an hour ago I had another BM. Same thing. About the same amount of blood. Only this time there was no pain or burning WHATSOEVER. It felt just like a normal BM except for the blood. There was a lighter amount of blood, and it was bright red, but it was still enough to make me worry.
I know that bright red blood means it is closer to the rectum and all signs point to anal fissure or hemorrhoids, but the one thing that has me worried is the absence of pain. Fissures and hemorrhoids, from what I remember, hurt me so bad it hurt to walk. I just left another message for my doctor.
I have to go to Texas for a month to work, and I'm already freaking out over this because I work in the very dangerous industrial construction field and I really don't want to get sick while on the road.
Am I just blowing things out of proportion here?
