Hello, I am a 22 year old female and don t have any medical conditions. I am worried that I might have rectal prolapse or haemorrhoids, but I am not sure. When I go to the bathroom, I can feel a tiny piece of hard flesh that sticks out when I strain, but only when I strain. It s not very big or very noticeable, don t have any bleeding or pain neither. Is this something I should definitely get checked out? It doesn t necessarily cause me any discomfort apart, I just want to make sure its not the beginning of any medical problems.

I feel lightheaded in the morning, usually after standing from sitting or bending over. I've had this off and on in my adulthood (age 42) but the other morning I was bending over to pet my cat and when I stood up I passed out and blacked out for a few minutes. It was very scary. I'm pretty sure it is low blood pressure, but what can I do about it?
