I eat really bad and last night drank the sauce from a order of XXXXXXX wings I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. this happens to me about twice a year. should I go to the hospital?

Brief Answer:
Surgeon evaluation needed

Detailed Answer:
Hello sir thanks for trusting health care magic.
This bleeding seems to be due to piles or a colorectal polyp but for proper diagnosis you need examination by a surgeon at the earliest as it needs early evaluation because it can be serious too.
But in general avoid constipation and straining at stools as much as possible and for that take care of following simple but effective measures -
- avoid excessive tea/coffee intake
- decrease fried and spicy foodstuff intake
- take loads of water
- drink cold milk or take curd in small but frequent quantity
- take salads along with all the meals
- take 2 glasses of lukewarm water daily after you wake up to help in softening of the stools
In case you have any questions related to this, please feel free to ask.
