What Causes Pain In Lower Left Abdomen And Blood In Stool?
Thank you doctor
Increase fibre in diet. Visit doctor for rectal exam
I have gone through the details you have provided.The blood could be because of injury to the rectal mucosa because of your self examination.
Hypothyroidism could be one of the reasons for your symptoms. To check for hypothyroidism I would suggest to he a TSH test done.
I suggest you visit you doctor to ascertain the cause of the bleed whether it is due to self examination or due to fissure or internal hemorrhoids.
Increasing fibre by taking note fruits and green leafy vegetables will help. I would also suggest a fibre supplement like isapgulha husk to help with your stools.
hope this helps
do get back in case you have further queries
