@ Most possible reason for fresh blood in stool is fissure , hemorrhoid or other

i ve had a macular rash for 32 days now. everywhere but where my bikini bathing suit covered. It has faded only on chest, shoulders and upper back but remains every where else. I also have EXTREME SKIN MOTTLING on arms/legs. Skin biopsy showed phototoxic cells/sunburned cells and cell death. I have a positive ana, high rf factor, fatigue, excessive thirst, muscle weakness. I got sun exposure while in treatment for Xanax/opiates dependency and was detoxed for about 30 days. I was also taking vistaril, busbar, ibersarten while in treatment. tested for syphilis, hep panel, both non reactive. could this be lupus or even cancer (lymphoma?) Seeing a rheumatologist tomorrow but afraid it may be blood cancer. Am I crazy?

I have had 5 boils each appeared at different times since 20 yrs old, I am now 28. The first one appeared a year after my 104 degree fever bronchitis/namonia... first on my left buttocks... after it bursted it healed... then another appears above it on the right side of my waist on the back... it too bursted and healed... then another appeared on my left forearm... it too bursted and healed... then I got one on my left check... i expirence my lower check/chin line swell up like a baseball... it was the first time i was treated with antibotics this time after going to the hospital er... two days later it finally bursted... it too healed... months later a boil formed above my left eye also with fever... it too bursted and healed... i now have an infection on my face that appears like impetigo and i am currently treating it with antibotics... no boils this time but during a short lived fever a lymph node on the front right side of neck the size of a pea... my infection is going away but this painless pea sized ball is still like so. Some kind of blood cancer runs in my family, my grandfather had one form and his sister, my aunt who had passed from it after fighting it with treatment... i also just learned that their father, my great grandfather had passed from a cancer of the blood... when I went in for a blood test at the er, they said I had a high white blood cell count, but I just assumed my skin infection/impetigo was to blame... are these symptoms of a blood cancer or lymph nodes, I m also have a poor appetite, lack energy when I used to run 3-6 miles 3 times a week, I am losing a lot of weight... average was 105 now I m 95lbs... and i don t work out as much.
