Okay...hopefully I am coherent enough to type this. I am exhausted and cannot sleep.
As some of you may have read on an earlier post, I was in the ER Friday (my time) with a high fever and severe abdominal pain. The pain has gotten slowly better today (Saturday, well now early sunday morning). Anyways...I have had diarrhea for the last 2 weeks or so constantly. When I was in the ER they gave me a short dose of pred hopefully to hold me over til I can see my GI this coming week. Well, I had abdominal pain for most of the day, but nothing like it was, so I thought, gee I'm on the mend. Until 2 o clock this morning. I had the urge to pass gas and was on the toilet. It wasn't coming and it was coming so I strained a bit...apparently too much and passed some blood. (A very frightening thing for me as I have never done it before.) It wasn't a ton, just kind of splattered in the water (sorry TMI) and had to wipe a few times. So, I debated going back to the ER, even woke up my husband, but decided it was maybe a hemmi as I have been going sooo much and it was painful to gowhen I went before. Plus, all of my abdominal pain was gone. Wierd. And I thought I was actually getting tired, so maybe I would sleep. Ha! So, fast forward to 3 hours later. The pain started builidng up again in my abdomen adn thought, here I go again, so I went again and there was some blood and some pain, about teh same about of blood before. And no abdominal pain.
Any thoughts? Should I go to the ER where they will probably do very little for me once again? Or should I try a wait and see approach and see what happens over the next day? I am a little concerned because I am a teacher and start teaching on Tuesday! YIKES!
Could the bleeding be from taking ALL of my meds including my new pred dose on empty stomachs pretty much today and yesterday because I have been on clear liquids. OKay, sorry to ramble, going to try and sleep again now!
Thanks for reading!
