MAKE A DOCTOR’S APPOINTMENT ASAP.

Blood in the urine/stool can be the sign of something going on internally!

@petalpetal:  I would give my doctor’s office a call and see what they say. They will likely want you to come in and get a stool/urine sample for testing, and I’d rather be safe than sorry.

I would go to the doctors ASAP especially since it’s been going on for a while. Is the blood dark or bright red?

@petalpetal:  agree, go see a doctor. Blood in urin and stool can be caused by many things, but is not normal.

Please make a doctor’s appointment asap! blood in the stool is definitely something to go get checked out. It could be something as common as an ulcer but it’s better to be safe than sorry.

I would go and see your doctor immediately! My mom had the same issue last year and it turned out she had a benign tumour in her colon (her doctor did an ultrasound to see). Since colon cancer runs in the family, it was quite scary. She had it removed and all is fine now. But her doctor said if she had left it alone, it could have become cancerous. 

At this stage you are probably fine, but it’s a good idea to give your doctor some samples and possibly get an ultrasound to see if anything is going on. Ultrasounds can detect internal bleeding.

Blood in the stool and urine is definitely cause to see your doctor, especially if you don’t know what’s causing it. I had blood in my stool for a couple weeks back in August and I was a bad patient in that I didn’t go to the doctor. I did know what was causing the blood though. I had an allergic reaction to some food and I essentially got hives in my intenstines. I just kept taking benedryl as often as I could and it healed up. For me I could feel where the hives were because they hurt. Do you hurt anywhere along your GI tract? The color of the blood can also indicate where the problem is. Black blood is from an issue in the upper end of your GI tract and red blood is from a problem in your lower GI tract.

@petalpetal:  Might just be a hemi! I wouldn’t worry yourself over it, but it’s worth getting checked out. Good luck!

Get to a Dr ASAP. There is a current campaign in the UK about this.

“Prof Kevin Fenton, PHE director of health and wellbeing, said: “Our message is clear – as soon as you spot blood in your pee, visit the GP.”

“It’s probably nothing serious, but it could also be a sign of something else that needs treatment, so don’t ignore the symptoms or put off a trip to the doctor.”

 

Same applies to stools
