right now i am having a lot if blood on a daliy basis from fissures that i have. before i was first diagnosed i had severe bleeding for months that my primary had decided was from hemmies but was actually my crohns. obviously i cant tell you what yours is but bleeding is never good and you whould get it checked out when you can. i know youre in a bind and im sorry but maybe the ER?
Thanks everyone...it is nice to hear from a few people since I've never had this happen before, I'lll admit it's a little scary. I am positive that I don't have hemmorriods. I honestly can't believe that it hasn't stopped yet...I'll have one regular looking bm (with blood of course) first thing in the morning, and then the rest of my day no matter even if I've not gone to the bathroom with that intention, I always get blood and mucous coming out....it has also started to come on really urgent which I've never really worrried about either, now I find myself running and then for all of that panic....not much!!??? Also a great sense of major pressure down there after I go? I am going on Monday to have my iron levels checked, but should I be worried about more than that?
Thanks for all of your thoughts
Thanks for all of the support
Keah...I have been taking my suppositories(Salofalk) again, and they aren't doing a thing for it. I know in the past they would take care of whatever "extra" issues I was having, I also take on a daily basis 2 salofalk 4x/day. I've been taking those for almost 3 yrs now, and never bled, except for when my GI has tried to wean me off of them? Now I'm bleeding from out of nowhere for this long? I really thought that the supp. would work or at least help. The frequency and urgency of B.M all of a sudden are a worry too...I've never been one that needs to worry about several trips to the bathroom, or if I'll make it there!
I know that my family doc is off on Mondays, I guess that I should try and call tomorrow to push the issue again...it's really sad when you really need a doctor, you find yourself waiting and feeling a little alone. I have always been one who waits things out and doesn't run or call the min. something is happening...shouldn't that count for something!?
poohbah...thanks for the idea of the anoscopy, maybe she'd be willing to take a look while we're waiting for this appt.
