TMI: Hemorrhoids?? Or something else?

I know I have them, they flair up and get very painful sometimes. But something different going on this time. Seeing as I don't have health insurance, though I would run it by here and see if anyone has experienced this.

My bowel movements are bloody. Absolutely NO pain from the 'roids though. So could it be related?

In addition, for the last 3 months, I've been having bouts of naseua out of the blue, just every once in a while. Yesterday I noticed my belly button is infected (that's a first for me). And I get dizzy spells when I bend over or stand up. Then this morning I had very dark colored stools (still loose and blood.

And yes I know none of you are doctors. And I will take any replies with a grain of salt, meaning I won't read into any of it as the gospel truth. : ) So please respond if you've experienced any of this, and just responding 'Go to the doctor' won't do me any good. Thank

  • I had nausea, vomitting and diarrhea when I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. Bloody stools were constant and especially in the morning. No dizziness though. Sorry, to tell you, but you need to see a doctor. Good luck.

  • well, if you don't go to the Dr. You will never really know what is wrong. I know of you have a bloody stoole, than it can be VERY serious. Not going to the Dr. because of lack of insurance is not a very wise move. Your health is more important than money.

  • The bleeding should not past a week if it does go to the ER and at least there they can do a colonoscopy and bill you later and you can make a payment plan with the hospital or get the charity

  • I do plan on figuring a way to see a doctor. but it's going to take time to either a. come up with the money or b. locate a clinic that serves my county.
    So I guess I was trying to gage how urgent this was. Was hoping that 'roids could cause bleeding without pain.
