I agree, all this speculation with members on health forums is somewhat helpful, but it's best to see a doctor.
I did a lot of speculation 10+ years ago too and look where it got me - I ignored serious concerns and allowed my malignant tumor to grow to the point where I needed major surgery. I will always regret not seeing my already established Gastro doctor, within a week of bleeding.
See a doctor star13. If for nothing else but to put a lot of your fears at rest.
