Hello everyone, I have been under a great deal of anxiety and stress for about a year. I had h y pylori which was treated and I had a ton of anxiety over HIV infection which came out negative. After and during my anxious times, my GI diagnosed me with IBS. I had endoscopy and colonoscopy, and my GI said I'm fine, that's all he said. HY pylori is gone. He said I had a lot of gas and something about a little inflammation but due to gas and nothing serious. After the treatment, probably due to excess pooping, I had anal pain and maybe fissure with blood in stool for about a month or two. So I got another colonoscopy which showed hemorrhoids and nothing else. For two months I was fine, I had a great deal of anxiety again and now I have blood in stool again and paper like substance around stool. I had this before first colonoacopy. Should I consult another GI? Could my IBS be flaring up with anxiety? Normal to have white paper like stuff around stool?
