I started with an up and down fever Monday thru Tuesday

Customer Question
night and then moved to...
I started with an up and down fever Monday thru Tuesday night and then moved to severe diaherra for about 36 hours. Top Tempature was 101.7. Also had a chest rash for about 12 hours on Tuesday only.
Today I feel good with no fever and have been able to drink and eat without it immediately passing through me.
But I have a new, more concerning symptom that I have never had with other bouts of gastroentinitis. Today (12 hours), I have sudden urge to poop about every 20 minutes but it is very painful and difficult and for the most part all I am squeezing out is a little blood. Sometimes a mix of blood and scraps. It almost feels like a rectal dry heave of sorts.
Does this sound normal?

Hello
No.
Although it could simply be hemorrhoids, it also might indicate an invasive infection.
You need an exam, and stool samples to be tested.
Go see the doctor now.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
