How are you? What other symptoms are present? How long have you been experiencing these symptoms? Blood in the stool may be attributed to a variety of issues such as hemorrhoids, infection or bleeding along the digestive tract. While drinking plenty of fluids and eating a high fiber diet may help, further evaluation may still need to be done.The other symptoms are all gastric issues and a referral to a gastroenterologist may be beneficial. Diagnostic tests including stool exam, imaging studies and physical examination will be very helpful in determining the underlying cause. Take care and do keep us posted.
