I woke up this morning and passed blood. I have never done this before so i am a little scared. I am not flaring but i did just start taking a anbiotic zithromax and paxil and xanax. It was red in color.

A few questions:
-How deep was the red?
-Even though you're not flaring are you having any other symptoms you think you need to be wary of?
-Anything you could have eaten?

Concerning the first one, it could give you more of an idea of whether it's something like hemorrhoids or if there is a problem higher up in your system.

I hope you're feeling all right in any case.

     I have ulcerative proctitis and am bleeding quite a bit a matter of fact, I have urgency and all that comes out is liquid stool and blood.  Having my first Remicade infusion tomorrow.  On 40 mgm of prednisone, Colazal and doc took me off the 6MP two weeks ago.

If CD is affecting your large intestine (colon) and/or rectom (proctitis) then blood is more common, you could have an internal hemmie or even an external hemmie (have you checked your anus to see if there's a hemmie there?)...if you do have proctitis then you would definitely need rectal meds. The bleeding could be an indication of a flare starting (likely in your colon/rectom area(s).
