Ok so for 2nd time in 3 weeks, I have had some drops of blood (bright) in the toilet after a movement. Outside of this, I have no aches, no stomach issues, no pain, nothing.  The stool itself looks fine with none mixed in with it. (Do not ask how I know this, it is pretty gross) My bottom was pretty sore when I went today and the stool felt quite large.  I talked to my doc a couple weeks prior when this happened and he seemed to think it was just a hemi. Said I may see it again. After that one time, I had nothing until l today, then a couple of drops today. Again, my biottom when the stool was exiting seemed pretty sore, and yesterday, I noticed when I was sitting for a while, it was also sore. I have an appt with him this week just to check what is happening.

It does sound like a case of hemmies, they could be internal ones if you don't see or feel anything on the outside of your anus.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)

You might consider a stool softener to help things slide out less painfully. Your symptoms definitely sound like hemorrhoids. Hot baths may help with the discomfort also.

ditto the hemmie...if you have any rectal meds..or anusol or plain hydrocortisone suppositories..try them.

Definitely keep us posted as to what the doc says.

The stool softener is a good idea as would be to add a fibre supplement to help bulk/fluff and soften the stool...much easier on exit. I like Metamucil smooth...definitely smoooooth on!

I have added metamucil tablets two 3 times a day. We'll see what happens. LOL I just posted about my achy bottom, but I think my achy bottom is still due to when I was at the worst part of my flare during the summer months. I just want it to go away!
