Diagnosed with celiacs, blood in my stools, lump right of my anus, feeling sick, tired, dizzy?
I am 22 years old, female. For the past 2 weeks, I have been feeling sick, tired, dizzy, had what the doctors called pre-faints and been getting sever migraines on one side with weakness on one side of my body too. I have recently been diagnosed with celiacs and have been eating a gluten free diet since. I had a blood test last week to find out my vitamin b12 and iron levels are fine now. I have also started to now get a pain in my stomach and there seems to be blood in my stool. I also have a little lump to the right of my anus.. any clue of what this could be or how to help me feel better please!?
If the blood in stools is fresh red in color then it indicates that the lump near the anus,or heamorrhoids may be the cause. If the blood is dark brown coloured,then it can be a proximal intestinal bleed. You need to get a colonoscopy done for that. Maintain adequate hydration. Drink plenty of fluids and vitamin c rich fruit juices.
COELIAC DISEASE WITH SUPERADDED IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME CAN CAUSE BLOOD IN STOOLS AND SUBSEQUENT WEAKNESS. THE LUMP NEAR ANUS MAY BE A DIFFERENT ISSUE,MAY BE A BOIL. APPLY LOCAL CREAM . GET A USG OF ABDOMEN DONE TO FIND OUT THE CAUSE OF PAIN IN STOMACH AND BLOOD IN STOOLS. TAKE ANTI SPASMODICS
Hi and welcome to question doctors.com
You are probably suffering from IBS and hemorrhoids if the blood in stool is red fresh blood and there is a lump at anus.. Other wise if blood is dark or inside the stool itself then it is of internal origin that needs stool analysis.. And may be endoscopy…
Eat high-fiber foods. Eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Doing so softens the stool and increases its bulk, which will help you avoid the straining that can worsen symptoms from existing hemorrhoids. Add fiber to your diet slowly to avoid problems with gas.
Use topical treatments. Apply an over-the-counter hemorrhoid cream or suppository containing hydrocortisone, or use pads containing witch hazel or a numbing agent.
Soak regularly in a warm bath or sitz bath. Soak your anal area in plain warm water 10 to 15 minutes two to three times a day. A sitz bath fits over the toilet.
Keep the anal area clean. Bathe (preferably) or shower daily to cleanse the skin around your anus gently with warm water. Avoid alcohol-based or perfumed wipes. Gently pat the area dry or use a hair dryer.
Don’t use dry toilet paper. To help keep the anal area clean after a bowel movement, use moist towelettes or wet toilet paper that doesn’t contain perfume or alcohol.
Apply cold. Apply ice packs or cold compresses on your anus to relieve swelling.
you seem pretty drained out due to fluid loss. maintain hydration by drinking plenty of fluids . pre and pro biotic tablets will help you retain the normal gut mucosa. anti spasmodic tablets will help you relieve pain. But the cause of blood in stools needs to be found out. An endoscopy will be helpful. lump around the anus could be a minor abscess or a sinus formation. consult a proctologist
