Blood in stools, painful to pass stools, abdominal cramping, nausea, chills

I am 21 years old. I am an active person, and run about 3 times a week, 3 miles each day. For the past year or so, i believe I suffered from hemorrhoids , but I was never diagnosed. Once in a while I would find blood in my stool , but very little, and sometimes it would be painful to pass a bowels movement. For the past few months, I have been noticing that I often feel cramping in my lower abdomen , sometimes accompanied by nausea and chills. At first, I thought that it might be due to ovulation and my period, but it was happening all throughout the month, so I started to question if this was the cause. I have been finding an increased amount of blood in my stool, lately, though not consistently. Last night I found quite a lot which frightened me. When I do need to go to the bathroom, I also feel a sudden intense cramping that is extremely painful. I also noticed that it seems like certain foods cause more bleeding and cramping then others.

Proctologist 's  Response
your painful bloody stools suggest there may be a fissure. Its just a tear of the inner wall of anus which goes into spasm thereby narrowing the anal opening. This is causing hold up of stools and increased cramping before motions.
you need to see a colorectal surgeon in your town. I suggest not to take any unscientific home remedy or other forms of so called treatment. YOU MAY NOT HAVE PILES atall.
take care.
wish you good health.
