What to do when blood in stool with severe back pains ?

serious question. i have been having an issue, for what feels like roughly the whole last month, having regular bowel movements. Sometimes it would be days between my movements. I feel super tired more so now that normal and have been requiring more sleep per night. For the last few years now i have also been experiencing heavy pain by my left rib under my breast and ive never known why. Recently i checked into reflexology for a foot issue and the pain was related to my #37 reflexology point and that correspondes to the sigmund colon. horrible pain only in that part of my foot until i started eating activia for now whats been 3 days. Today is the 2nd day ive actually had a bowel movement in a long time but it did have red blood in it which i know is a bad sign and my lower backs been hurting horribly. im super scared of hospitals but ive been fighting pain for so long and feeling sluggish that i need to know if now is the time for me to get up the courage and go to the hospital right now! thank you

Thanks fr the query

It wuld have helped me bettter if u had told me how old u were
I suggest u get yourself a colonoscopy as i can sense from your message that u r worried. There is nthing to afraid of doctors. They are there t help u. Blood along with irregular stools could mean a lot of things
Fow now take syp lactulose 15 ml at night, every night for 5 days, i am sure u will feel better

Have a healthy living
