I'm 29, and I have had rectal bleeding on and off for years since I was a teen. Previously when I've flagged this to a doctor they have passed it off as piles or an anal fissure. I haven't flagged this to a doctor since I was about 20/21 years old, I've sort of just dealt with it because it wasn't causing me that much pain and even though it's been frequent, it does come and go.
However more recently, I am bloating worse than I have done before, and I am frequently getting quite a lot of blood clots. I know I shouldn't self diagnose but I've ruled off chrons disease because I don't have the other symptoms, I regularly go to the loo, and I have maintained or gained weight. I am fatigued but I've passed that off as a part of general ageing/work etc.
I know I should be going to the doctor but I don't want to blow it out of proportion if this is just normal and is probably pile or something. I should add, I have had blood tests fairly regularly for other things and they never flag anything of concern - at most low iron levels.
Anybody experienced something like this and any tips for dealing with it? Should I be more concerned than I am
