Doctor :   means?
User :   do you think this is a result of not eating enough food?
Doctor :   no
Doctor :   it cannot be so

User :   yes
User :   it's like burning pain
Doctor :   a sharp one
User :   yes
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   there may be several reasons behind it
Doctor :   it may be due to anal fissure
Doctor :   some injury
Doctor :   developing hemorrhoids
Doctor :   these are most common causes
User :   I never had this before
Doctor :   as you have sharp pain so the possibility of anal fissure is more
User :   and since I haven't been eating that much recently
User :   kind of lets me believe that this is due to not eating enough food
User :   because recently I might just have some cookies for lunch and that's it
User :   I have no appetite
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   i can understand
Doctor :   but it cannot lead to bleeding in stools
Doctor :   in my opinion you should take it seriously
Doctor :   and you should go for proper investigations
User :   ok
Doctor :   and a checkup by surgeon
User :   go to family doctor first?
