The title says it all. I’m having a real hard time not worrying about this. I’ve been getting blood in my stool and now my bowel movements are like little marbles and I strain to pass them.
I have scheduled an appointment with a GI to check me out but was wondering if anyone has any solutions. I have been taking isabghol which is a fiber supplement and drinking tons of water and excercise 3 - 4 days a week and that helps a little bit but I’m pretty sure it’s because of the medications I’m taking. I went to my primary care and he prescribed me a cream because he says I have hemorrhoids. It helped a little bit with the blood but the problem came back. It comes and goes. The last few times I went to the bathroom and didn’t have any blood, I didn’t feel any pain either but my bowel movements are like little lumps.
I’ve been stable for more than a year and the medication I’ve been taking has been doing it jobs but the side effects are starting to get worse.
I get a monthly injection of Sustenna Invega 156 mg, take Wellbutrin 50mg for depression and Clonazepam 1mg for my sleep problems. I feel very frustrated because I feel like no one can help me with this. My primary care was telling me to get surgery for my hemorrhoids and I refused because I don’t think I need it.
If anyone has any suggestions please let me know or has dealt with something similar.
