I just saw a GI Monday. I had been having severe contraction in my GI tract from my esophagus to my rectum. I had experienced tiny spots of blood a couple of times in the last 2 months, but couldn't tell if it was vaginal or rectal. I have the test kit to check for occult bleeding, but was unable to use it because I had a period that just ended yesterday.
Anyway....this morning I had a BM and I am definitely bleeding from my rectum. It's bright red. I haven't felt like I have hemorrhoids, so I don't know why this could be happening. But I find it impossible to believe that all the other GI disturbances are unrelated.
I quit using Norco for chronic pain this past April. And I'm sick of Drs. blaming every problem I have on withdrawl. I have been feeling very sick for months now, and it's just getting worse. I called the GI's office and told his nurse about the bleeding and am waiting for her to call me back. In the mean time I wonder if anyone could give me a clue of what's happening. I'm so tired and stressed.
