Hi everyone, I'm new here and have recently been having a lot of personal issues with my body that I don't quite understand. It all started about a few weeks ago. I started getting anal itching. I thought it was just the soap I was using or something like that so I switched it up and it still happened. Now I am starting to see blood in my stools which I have never had happen. Could this be hemroids? I'm only 28 years old but I work at a factory and I have to do a lot of heavy lifting sometimes for about 8-12 hour days.
You should go see your doctor for evaluation and testing. It can be something as simple as hemorrhoids or a hernia or serious, but the only way is for your doctor to be involved. As I understand, hemorrhoids can worsen from heavy lifting and 8-12 hours a day may be the factor for your bleeding right now.
I agree with ChitChat...see your doctor. I would suspect hemorrhoids. If the blood is bright red, it usually means hemorrhoids. Lifting certainly could cause this problem and continue to make it worse. You may wish to see a colon rectal specialist. This type of doctor would know exactly what to do to make life more comfortable for you in regard to this problem.
