I have had bright red bleeding from my rectum for two mornings in a row after a bad case of diarrhea two nights ago after eating in a resturant. I am a 43 year old woman, and have had bouts of constipation and hemmoriods all my life. I started taking metuamucil nightly 5 months ago and this has helped tremendously. But, could this be too much fiber? Could I have torn something to make me bleed when I had the diarrhea? I went 5 0r 6 times that night. I did not bleed till next morning though when I went to have another bowl movement. How long should I wait till going to doctor? Will it heal on its own if it is a tear?
