I've had 2 bloody stools.... Actually only blood in the past

Customer Question

Hi, I've had 2 bloody stools.... Actually only blood in the past hour. Urgent care is closed & I didn't know if this is something that should been seen for in an ER or if it could wait until Monday. My stomach doesn't hurt & the only symptom is bright red blood stools.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I thought I was having diarrhea but it was only blood I was passing. This happened twice within the last hour
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Doctors generally expect a deposit of about $34 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
