Blood in stools, WBC in urine, urinary incontinence, swelling in hands, feet, face. All symptoms related?

I am a usually healthy 33 yr old mother of three. Lately I ve had several medical issues bothering me. I have blood in my stools , wbc s in my urine (with no infection), urinary incontinence (to the point of bed wetting ), high blood pressure and swelling in my hands, feet and face. I was diagnosed with narcolepsy a few yrs ago so the fatigue isn t new but it s become a lot worse. I m getting scheduled for a CT tomorrow I m just worried what they re gonna find. Could all these symptoms be related? If so, does it sound like cancer?

Hi wooks. I dont think you should worry because you are young and every of your symptoms in most cases has benign cause.
First, blood in stool usually means that you have hemmorhoids, anal fissurae, poylps or angiodysplasie. It can be sign of colon cancer but this is not the first thing to think about because it usually occur in +50 years old and if you have genetic predispositions. urinary incontinence is usual at women after pregnancies. WBC in urine too, it can be caused by any inflammation and doenst mean anything if there is no bacteria in urine.
High pressure needs to be treated by drugs. These symptoms arent related, you need to reduce your anxiety and find the right diagnosis step by step.
Wish you good health.
