Today I had blood clots in 3 bowel movements. I am not constipated and have regular bowel movements until today. I have been researching anal fissures and am uncertain as to if this could be it. I was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome in the past, and try to get enough fiber in my diet. The only leading symtom to this has been severe anal itching for 2 weeks prior to today. Any help would be appreciated.
thank you

  • Well a few things can cause rectal bleeding some more serious than others yet none of then should be ignored, I have the same problem with blood in stool and it seems to be getting worse. It seems that if you are getting that uncomfortable itching around the anus then I would suggest it hemroids and the blood is from hardened stool passing or rough toilet paper will do it. It is treatable and you can also get creams and what not for the problem. The GI track hasn't got any nerve ending there for you would not feel any discomfort if the problem is from with in the track but you will feel pain, Itching or burning if it is hemroids around the rectum of just inside. It is an embarrassing topic for some but you should see a doctor do not feel that you are any less of a person if you go, Doctors have heard and seen it all and some and you will feel better after they have looked at it. Take care and good luck.
