I went out to eat, and after dinner, I felt very crampy. My body has never been able to process heavier meats well, and I usually have to use the bathroom after eating steak, etc. Last night, when I went to the restroom when I got home, my stool was firm, and a little bloody. What could this be? Should I be concerned?Also, my mother wanted to know what blood in the urine means?Answer Question

Usually bright red blood in your stool means hemorrhoids. Black tarry stool means bleeding up in your digestive system somewhere. Blood in the urine makes the urine look brown. It means a urinary track in fection (bladder or kidney) or a kidney stone. You urine doesn't have to be brown to have a UTI. I am a medical lab tech and the only times I ever saw what would look like blood in the urine to most people (red) is when women are having vaginal bleeding and it gets in the sample or they have eated something or took a drug that turned the urine red.
