This is a little embarassing for me to write but I really want some advice.

I went to the doctors a few weeks ago because I've been have stomach pains (Well, not so much pain as just an uncomfortable feeling - But sometimes it will get worse, like a cramping feeling) and she just prescribed me fibre gel. I'd not really been having any problems with constapation but she said that sometimes your bowel can just get clogged up and cause discomfort.

I've taken the gel, but it hasn't really helped, and yesterday I noticed blood on the toilet paper when I wiped. I didn't think to actually look for blood in the stool, but I mentioned it to my mum (I'm 14 btw) and she said that I should check next time. Well today there was again blood on the toilet paper, mixed in with the feaces. I looked in the toilet but didn't see any obvious blood...

I'm wondering whether I should go to the doctor again, but I really don't want to cause any fuss over what is probably a small problem, plus are local GPs aren't exactly the best - They'll probably just prescribe me fibre gel even though it didn't work the last time.

Any advice?
