Bleeding from anus, diarrhea. Internal hemorrhoid rupture?

Yes, my name is Teri and I am concerned about an usual event that has happened to me several hours ago. At first it began as diarrhea and the still was somewhat loose. However, as I made my trip a second time feeling the queasiness that diarrhea makes me feel I noticed that my anal region was bleeding quite a bit. And I checked to make sure it was that. I told my mother, but she saw it as nothing. Well few hours later I m in the need to go again, and no stools are released any just blood and does te same thing as the first time..bleed. My mom thinks its the internal hemorrhoids ruptured, yet she does nothing about it. Saying that sleep will cure it. It concerns me because I ve never bled this much from my anal region before. And it has the small tissue like blobs as a menstral cycle has, and I m worried it may be something else. And I haven t slept yet due to the queasy effects from what feels like diarrhea but it isn t.

Thank you for the query.

Ruptured hemorrhoid is rather unlikely with diarrhea. You should push really hard on stool to rip the hemorrhoid. But you can simply check if there is any bleeding from hemorrhoid. Just wipe yourself with paper when no stool is present. If the hemorrhoid is bleeding, blood should be present regardless of the stool.

Diarrhea with blood usually indicates bacterial infection of the gastrointestinal tract and you should treat it that way. Inflammatory bowels disease can also give bloody diarrhea.

I suggest you to visit your doctor, have stool tests and blood work. Antibiotic might be necessary.

Hope this will help.
