Customer Question

Are you live?
JA: No. I'm the Doctor's Assistant.
Customer: I have bright red blood in stool. I've been taking aleve for several weeks for back pain due to degenerative disc. I suspect it's aleve caused bleeding.
JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Doctor can help you best.
Customer: I take 1x twice a day. Morning and evening. I took after dinner and walked the block. When I went to bathroom at 10 pm it was bloody.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I've passed more blood twice since. Not huge, but appears to be clots about size of one or two fingers.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

Thanks for your question.

This can be due to aleve you are taking.

It can also be due to hemorrhoid bleeding if the bleed is painless.

If you have passed 3 times now it would be safer to visit ER and get yourself assessed and treated .Larger volume of bleeding can lead to medical complications and therefore it is safer to get this bleeding episode assessed and treated right away.
