Just looking for some advice or experience with the same problem. This morning I woke up to lots, and I mean lots of blood in the bowl after going to the bathroom. I was not in pain, nor did I have any symptoms the night before (except for being tired, and bloated) that would relate to this. It has occurred about 4 more times since then. But only when I go to the restroom, no leaking or anything like that. I of course have called my Dr, but have yet to hear from his office. Apparently he is out of town, and they are awaiting a callback. I have some Prednisone, so I started myself on 40mg this morning. My side is a bit sore, I have a slight headache and feel very tired (in the early am I found myself a little light headed even). I have been drinking plenty of liquids, have'nt had much food, just a couple pieces of toast w/jam. So.....anyone out there experience anything like this? Could this be really serious??? I'm so tired of this disease!!!! Thanks for any feedback you can give.
