Approximately two months ago, I was having some terrible stress in my life (Work, marriage etc). I wasn't eating the greatest, somedays I wouldn't eat at all due to my stresses killing my appatite. Nonetheless, in my efforts to try to relax my stress, I decided to take up smoking again (dont ask, i know what your thinking). Although at first it gave me head rushes and I hated the taste it left in my mouth, it ultimately reduced my feelings of stress so i continued for roughly two weeks. It was at that time, I had notice that when I smoked, I started to get pain in my abdomen and out towards my middle of my back. Minimal though. About one week later, I had blood in my stool and was like...."what the?". I went to the hospital where the Doc perscribed Anusol HC subository's which seemed to clear up the blood in stool. However, since then I have developed continous pain in the abdomen, mostly left side but will alternate to the right side as well.
I'm 28 years old, not over weight, reasonably healthy but i dont eat the greatest, i guess.
The stresses in my life have subsided now but the pain and blodd are persistent.
I've read a lot online, symptoms checkers and so on, and there is a possibility of 1200 conditions causing this.
I've gone to see the doctor and he has issued an x-ray and ultra-sound of the adbodmen and I'm following up today with him.
I guess what I'm looking for is has anyone else had an experience similar to mine? Symptoms similar? outcome?
Thanks for your help!
