This is Dr. David

you should go to the emergency room for evaluation by a doctor.

extreme dehydration can be serious and can damage your kidneys and other organs and can cause low blood pressure and dizziness and headaches and weird dreams.

it can also cause constipation and hard stools which can cause hemorrhoids to bleed.

you need to see a doctor at the ER

they can do blood work to check on your kidneys and give you IV fluids to help fix your dehydration

they can also check a CBC and hemoglobin level and see how much blood you might have lost and see if you need blood transfusion.

they can also check to see if you have hemorrhoids which are causing your bleeding or see if it might be something else.

do you have a hospital or ER close to you where you can see a doctor?

let me know if you have other questions.

you might need a colonoscopy at your age of 51 if you have never had a colonoscopy and if you are having rectal bleeding.

have you had a colonoscopy before?

do you have any other questions?

Hello

This is a different expert.

Do not drive yourself to the ER.

Your symptoms indicate potential/y massive bleeding, and this can be critical.

It will be dangerous for you to take yourself.

Without any doubt, your symptoms are consistent either with severe bleeding, or prolonged bleeding, and a significant anemia.

Any other possibility is also potentially as serious, and these must be addressed.

Call your emergency services and get them there now.

I am a double board certified clinical doctor of over 20 years experience.

I hope it goes well.

Let me know how it goes.

I am the first doctor to help you

you haven't told us how much bleeding you have

there is no way to know if you have massive bleeding or small hemorrhoid bleeding that you see on the tissue paper after you wipe.

I didn't tell you to drive yourself to the ER.

if you are very dizzy, you shouldn't be driving yourself.

you should call up 911 and have an ambulance take you.

or you can have a family member take you to the ER.

let me know if you have other questions.
