Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 4 months ago

how old are you?

are you male or female?

sorry you have these symptoms.

blood in stool most commonly is from hemorrhoid bleeding. do you have constipation or hard stools which can cause hemorrhoid bleeding?

bad anxiety, lack of exercise can cause stiff neck and numbness in the fingers.

these typically are not signs of lymphoma.

do you have bad anxiety symptoms.

I feel bloated at times
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 4 months ago

I see.

cutting out carbohydrates, sugars, sodas, bread, pasta, white flour and eating more protein, fruits and vegetables over time can help you loose weight.

are you able to change your diet and do some exercise?

cutting out gluten and milk and sodas can help decrease bloating.

Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 4 months ago

bad hemorrhoids can bleed frequently

you may need use a suppository over teh counter for your hemorrhoids or a prescription hydrocortisone suppository to help shrink the hemorrhoids.

but hemorrhoids I don't experience paint when in the restroom
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
i don't experience pain at all. I thought pain is one symptoms of hemorrhoids? the blood is bright red. and it would occur after the last session, not in the beginning or in the middle of the restroom process.
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 4 months ago

this sounds like internal hemorrhoid bleeding.

a prescription hydrocortisone 25mg suppository over time can help shrink internal hemorrhoids.

diet and exercise eliminates hemorrhoids? if not hemorrhoids, what would be the 2nd diagnosis?
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 4 months ago

fiber and softer stools and improve diet can help hemorrhoids but won't get rid of them.

exercise can help test weight gain and the rest of your body.

rectal polyps or rectal fissures can also bleed

the best way to know for sure is to see a GI doctor and get an anal scope procedure or sigmoidoscopy to look inside of the bowel and see where the bleeding is coming from.
