Blood on my stool.

I am a 44 year old woman and the last 2 months I have had blood in my stool. I have experienced it almost everyday there has been a few times where there was a lot more than other days, and there has been a few days where I see a little to none. I do have lower back pain but it starts to hurt when I am leaning forward too long or when I'm curled up sleeping. I am worried and would like to hear experiences and thoughts. Thank you!

  1. Hi , I'm so sorry that you're experiencing this. Blood in your stool isn't a typical IBS symptom and I would definitely talk to your doctor about it and have them run some tests to find out what's causing it. One of our advocates experienced something similar recently and talks about her experience here: It's always a good idea to get new symptoms checked, even if it's just to be sure. Please keep us updated if you like! Wishing you quick relief, Karina (team member)
