It feels almost like heartburn under breast bone. No constipation.
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 1 year ago.

Ok then this is likely gastritis or inflammation of the stomach lining.

Viral infection is a common cause.

Analgesics like ibuprofen also can cause this.

Excess stomach acid production from unknown reason also possible.

You can try over the counter Prilosec 20 mg twice daily for 2 weeks.

Anything serious unlikely.

But a clinical evaluation is also recommended preferably with an endoscopy if blood in stool continues for few days.

Best wishes

I don't know if this makes a difference but the blood isn't in the stool it is around it and dripping. I am sorry I know it sounds disgusting.

That does make difference.

It suggests likely internal hemorrhoids.

That can cause painless bleeding.

Not concerning.
