In my case, piles have never gone away and they flair up all the time. I had to have them removed as they caused me to be really anaemic.After I got those ones removed, new ones came back again, go figure. The other lady is correct in saying that black specks are usually from a high gi bleed, however u may get black specks from internal piles if u dont poop every day and the blood stays in ur rectum for a few days. It also may be something like polyps. best to go to ur dr and let them do the appropriate tests. I know its hard to think, but dont panic and keep ur mind on getting urself to that appt, at least u may no some more answers then. No use paniking when u dont know facts. Try and focus on something else till then, see a friend, go for a walk etc. Bleeding from the rectum is quite common and may happen for a number of reasons, 1 for example is piles from giving birth. I wish u all the best for ur appt.
A nurse practioner would not be able to give you an exact diagnosis. You could have an IBD like diverticulitis, chrons,etc. Bleeding from the rectum, especially in younger people are mostly due to hemmorhoids/fissures, however if you are having anxiety issues about it, an appointment with a GI doctor would probably be your best bet.
Thanks for your advice, Im only 22 years old,always suffering from on and on from piles, with my examination by a Nurse Practioner surely she would have noticed something wrong.
I have an appointment in a week with a doctor in my local doctors so trying not to panic.
Did you see a Gastroenterologist for this? If not this is what you need to do. Black specks can be blood as well coming from a higher GI bleed. If the doctor you're referring to is a GI doc, I would find another. This is their specialty and they will get right to the problem if there is one. I would also find a new doctor, one who cares and will listen to you. Take care.
