I would suggest you still ask the doc for some rectal suppositories if he's thinking it's hemmies. You have rectal inflammation anyway, so it'll help I would think.
Anxiety cycle of thinking is so easy to get into...I'm impressed your doctor is accepting of it. But, you do have to get to the point of what's normal for you and given the extreme stress of anxiety, it will cause some problems with autoimmune disease.
Consider the supps.
Hope you improve daily.....
