Detailed Answer:
Hi! Welcome to Healthcaremagic. Thanks for sharing your concerns with us. We will try to help you in best way possible. First of all it's sad to know what you had been going through lately.

Based on the history you have shared, you need to have urgent blood tests including clotting profile and complete blood counts to rule out hemoglobin deficiency called anemia due to blood loss. As your symptoms relate to that. Also a per rectal examination and sigmoidoscopy may also be needed to locate the cause of bleeding. Transemic acid tablets and OTC analgesics like acetaminophen can be used but avoid any other pain killers. Ultrasound and stool analysis may also be needed.

Wishing you a speedy recovery. Hope this has answered your question. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask. Regards
