I have been diagnosed with pheripheral neuropathy with no know cause. I did have some foot surgery in June 2015 and went to Europe in October 2015. It was a physically challenging trip. I also have a right knee issue which may have contributed somewhat. I am a 72 year old female. In 2002 I was diagnosed with steroid myopathy due to massive steroids taken for a kidney disease. I am in remission from minimal change disease. I need to see what can be done for me. YYYY@YYYY

Hi, I am just a bit concerned, I suffer from constant constipation and experience a small amount of blood after each movement, I have been checked for hemaroids before and there have been found to be none present. Tonight I had a rather painful stool and I ended up with quite a lot of blood present, three to four tablespoons worth. This has never happened before, I have been suffering from terrible adominal cramps and pain for the past six weeks especially before and after a bowel movement. I have also been feeling quite lethargic and rundown and have been nauseaous for months now when it comes to food. I thought I had a stomach bug but am starting to think it may be something else. Can you help me with any advice please?
