Metamucil which is fiber can cause gas and bloating. Bright red blood is most often due to hemorrhoids or a small tear in the anus. But anytime we see blood in our stool we need to have the cause determined by a Gastroenterologist to be on the safe side to to ease our mind. You suffer with anxiety and don't need more to worry about. I truly feel it's hemorroids or an anal tear, but you need to have a doctor determine this for sure. Try not to worry, it's extremely rare for one as young as you to develop colon cancer. Take care.
Thank you so much! just one more question, does that mean that even if one has colon cancer, can metamucil stop the narrow stool symptoms or if u have the cancer it doesnt matter you'll get narrow stool no mattter what.
Narrow stools can be due to constipation, and the Metamucil helps with this as well as probiotics. It would be a good idea to add yogurt enriched with probiotics to your daily diet. You may want to get checked out just to be on the safe side, but don't worry that it's cancer there are other things that can cause this.
