When do you think it's time to worry about blood in the stool? My doctor wants me back on Azulfidine, but I am thinking it is just from a small internal 'rroid I have, so I am holding off. How can you tell the difference between problem blood & 'rroid blood?

Blood should never be taken lightly... One should always see a doctor when any blood is detected. Did you doc check you for internal hemmies before prescribing the IBD med?

Hi Hukleberrie, welcome back...I'm sorry you're having blood in your stools though! While blood is never "normal," some causes of it are more benign than others. An internal hemorrhoid would certainly cause bleeding, as would external hemorrhoids. Has anyone given you any rectal suppositories for your hemmies in the past?
