ANYTIME you have blood found in your stool, it is a big deal, until they find the cause. Be ready for a long haul of tests though. Sometimes they can't find the cause. I have had chronic blood loss found on occult, and stool guiac tests now for 31/2 yrs. and all they say now is IBS. I have read up on IBS and have found that blood in the stool is not a side affect of it. They have done CT scans, 2 Colonoscopies, small bowel follow through, and upper GI series, and cant find where the blood is coming from. I am borderline anemic 1/2 the time, and they say my blood pressure drops 25 points from the sitting position- to the standing position after 15 min. between BP readings. My Gastro said that was a indication for internal bleeding, and have also had Endoscope with negative results. I have been on Prilosec, and now Nexium for 4 years. To this day- they still do not know why, and I have gone to 2 other specialists, and they all have a different IDEA of what MAYBE it could be, but still no bananas. Good luck and be a advocate for treatment- there is alot of quacks out there.
